Original title: La Liga Chairman: Messi is a money-making machine Serie A Ronaldo still has not risen
When Messi broke out this summer, La Liga officials clearly stood on Barcelona's side. La Liga President Tebas made it clear in an interview a few days ago that Messi is the money-making machine of La Liga. It is not difficult to understand why La Liga officials chose to endorse Barcelona.
"I have always liked Messi who played in La Liga. I don't know if he can still perform well in other leagues." Tebas said of Messi. "Messi is a money-making machine, but we have been doing it for many years. Good preparations for him and Ronaldo to leave. I don’t think La Liga will lose a lot of economic benefits because of their departure. Neymar and Ronaldo went to Ligue 1 and Serie A, but these two leagues did not usher in imagination. The prosperity of the superstar is of course important, but La Liga will not decline because of the loss of the superstar. The development of the brand depends on the whole."
"The national derby is a feast for fans all over the world. We have built this event very well. If you want the league to be competitive, you need three or four teams to compete for the championship." Tebas continued, "La Liga has 20 teams, the championship score should not exceed 90 points, so that the competition will be more fierce. We want to avoid the situation where Liverpool was in the Premier League last season, we must maintain the balance between the teams."
Tebas once publicly admitted that he is a Real Madrid fan, and now he does not shy away from this topic: "Hiding one's fan identity is a very hypocritical thing. My four children and I are Real Madrid fans."
The new crown epidemic broke out again in Europe. Tebas talked about La Liga’s response: “Fans are the foundation of football, and the existence of fans is very important. The policy we are formulating now is to make the league run smoothly. Players need time. Get tested for the virus to avoid being infected, because the spread of the virus in the locker room is terrible."
