As part of his continuous fight against the European Super League clubs, Javier Tebas sent his latest threat or warning to them. 

It’s pretty clear Javier Tebas still considers the European Super League clubs a major threat as he recently stated. Even though he keeps saying that this initiative is dead, the facts tell a very different story to the rest of the world. Only La Liga and the UEFA presidents are living in a fantasy world that thinks this Super League is no longer alive. In a recent board meeting with all the club associates, Joan Laporta told FC Barcelona supporters that the Super League is still very much alive.

He considers there must be a dialogue between both sides in order to reach a proper agreement. But Tebas is still fighting against this notion and he wants nothing to do with this new tournament. When the English clubs broke away from the league, they never completely cut contact with the three remaining clubs. In fact, UEFA wanted to sanction these institutions but the law protected all of them from getting banned. This means Florentino Perez is already two steps ahead of the opposition. 

Tebas thinks the Super League is dead. 

As per ESPN, this is what Javier Tebas recently said about the Super League: “I’ve spoken with Barca executives in recent days. They believe they should keep doing what they’re doing and I think they’re wrong. The concept of the Super League is impossible. Nine of the twelve clubs have asked to dissolve the company they founded. The model they’re defending, without the English clubs… I think it’s dead. It’s a boat with three castaways and a flag, and that flag is an injunction from a Madrid judge.

“Laporta says the courts have said they’re in the right, but that’s not true, it’s one judge in Madrid and an injunction. I’ve tried to convince them that they’re wrong and should work along other lines. There’s been a lot of tension. Most of the English clubs want to turn the page on the Super League. We can’t let the big clubs be the center of the football industry. They’re important, but from there to letting them run the industry and decide how the money is divided… No.”
