Thebes assures that the Barça

Javier Tebas, president of LaLiga, considered that FC Barcelona "is on the right track" in terms of being able to register the new signings for the season that starts on August 12, although he assured that they have "a little work left for what They have to do".

“We follow them, but when they show us the documentation of the levers and some players that they have to sell, we will see if they can sign everyone up. They know what they have to do. I think they have a little work left for everything they have to do, but I think they are on the right track”, he said before the start of the 2022/23 season Kick Off Gala.

“If they will reach the start of LaLiga? Ask it to FC Barcelona. I can say that they know the rules well and they know what they have to do. They still have to do, but there is still time, ”he commented. In addition, Tebas explained why Barça can face the signings it is making this summer.

“It has sold 10% of its audiovisual rights for 207 million euros. Then they increased that part to 25%, which I think means about 350 more... That would already be 500 million euros and I think they still have another third lever of another 200. With this and if they release some players is what explains that chance to sign. They have been able to sell assets, which was something they had to do, and cut wages; it's what allows them to sign,” he stated.

The president of LaLiga explained his point of view about Barcelona asking him to lower Frenkie de Jong's salary if he wants to stay at the club in order to register the signings. “What LaLiga is going to do is to comply with our collective agreement with the AFE. Players cannot be separated or pressured, it is what is established by the collective agreement, the Law, reason and ethics. From there, Barcelona knows the rules and the responsibilities that exist in that aspect, ”he valued.

Tebas also gave his opinion on the current affairs of Atlético de Madrid, which he is sure could incorporate the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo. “I would like to see him in LaLiga. Whether it is feasible or not for Atlético de Madrid, they will have to make some exit movement if they want to bring in this player; I do not know. But to make room for a player of this level you have to make room for some players, ”he explained.

For his part, the president of LaLiga was blunt about the decision of the Higher Sports Council (CSD) to provisionally suspend the draws for the Women's First Division that were going to be held separately by the Women's Professional Football League (LPFF), this Tuesday, and the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), this Wednesday.

“It is the nonsense in which we have spent many years, not understanding what each one's powers are... it is not a problem of Javier Tebas, it is that they do not understand him in the competitions of the professional leagues. The Women's League is a professional league and has its own competitions. If it is not understood how Spanish football is organized, these things happen, it is not known why they insist on something in which they have already agreed with LaLiga in the men's competition, ”he valued.

Tebas attended the 'Kick Off' Gala in Madrid in which the champions and promotions of the 2021/22 season are honored and in which the news in the broadcasts for 2022/23 were presented, including the announcement of that Carlos Martínez will be the main voice of the broadcasts of the competition on Movistar.

A campaign that starts on August 12 and for which Tebas sees Real Madrid as the favorite. "He is the League and Champions League champion. On the pitch he has already shown the level he has. Barcelona has made great additions and will give battle, but Real Madrid is the current champion and none of its great players have left", commented.

“Barça came second in LaLiga. Can you fight a championship? They are very complicated because even Madrid last year scored less than 90 points and that shows that we have a very competitive championship. If they have signed that, it is because they are going for everything and the more competitive LaLiga is, the better it will be for everyone ”, he valued.
