After Neymar in 2017, Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018, Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi this summer… Season after season, the Spanish championship is losing huge stars. Three of the names mentioned are found today at Paris Saint-Germain, and that irritates Javier Tebas, the president of LaLiga.
The boss of professional football across the Pyrenees heavily criticized Paris Saint-Germain and the “club-states” (cuckoo Manchester City), deeming their economic model “unsustainable” on Twitter a few minutes after the end of the summer transfer window in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday.
Club-states are as dangerous to the football ecosystem as the Super League. We were critical of the Super League because it destroys European football and we are just as critical of PSG. Covid losses + 300M; TV revenue in France -40%; And + 500M in salaries? Untenable.
