LA LIGA chief Javier Tebas has slammed “ignorant” Real Madrid and Barcelona for backing a breakaway European Super League.
While Manchester United, Liverpool and other Big Six Prem clubs have distanced themselves from the proposal, outgoing Barca President Josep Maria Bartomeu revealed the Nou Camp outfit had “agreed to join” the planned league.
But in a brutal putdown of his two biggest clubs, Tebas dismissed their scheme as something that would destroy “the culture of football”.
Tebas said: “Little by little, this Super League idea is less clandestine, more open.
“But it doesn’t have a large showing of support.
“In fact, it is a very minor project that lacks economic or social depth.
“It shows a clear ignorance of the politics of football, the culture of football, the economy of football and of the audiovisual rights of football.”
The scheme is the brainchild of Real President Florentino Perez, who claimed backing for the concept from Fifa.
World chiefs have also backed away from the idea and Tebas added: “The day they dig deeper they will realize that what they are proposing is neither good for them nor good for the ecosystem of world professional football.
“This won’t go far. But for 14 years we have spent every year dedicating a couple of days a year to respond to this Super League issue. And I’m sure we will continue next year.”
Tebas was speaking alongside Real Betis President Angel Haro, who added: “Any league that takes away something important from La Liga is clearly bad for La Liga and bad for us.
“We have to fight that. If you take away added value from La Liga you put us at risk, it hurts us, and you have to fight that.”
