Javier Tebas: “There won’t be a Super League in two years”

La Liga president Javier Tebas has made his opinion of the Super League very clear on the day that the European Court of Justice has ruled that they can go ahead with the plan.

Speaking at the presentation of José Manuel Rodríguez Uribes as the new Secretary of State or Sport, and adapted by Marca, Tebas, as was to be expected, gave his own verdict of the CJEU’s ruling that UEFA and FIFA will no longer be able to block the creation of the Super League. Tebas was direct in his verdict, “I bet that there won’t be a Super League in two years, or six, or eight.”

The La Liga chief went on to say that he doesn’t believe there are many supporters of the Super League, “I’ve already seen the line of clubs that defend the Super League.” Unlike many leagues, the two heavyweights of La Liga are supporters of the competition, with Florentino Pérez being one of its masterminds and Joan Laporta recently expressing his satisfaction with the ruling. However, it remains to be seen how other leagues will react and whether the competition will ever come to fruition.
