In response to LaLiga president Javier Tebas’ persistent attacks on Paris Saint-Germain and its players, the French club has retaliated.
Following their acquisitions of former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and Barcelona icon Lionel Messi, the head of Spain’s top flight launched a stinging attack on Tuesday at a press event for an official Panini sticker album, labeling the Ligue 1 side “as dangerous as the Super League” and calling them “a league of legends.”
LaLiga is still hurting after a summer that saw a slew of high-profile players depart, including Ramos and Messi, who were both signed by PSG on a free transfer.
Due to the club’s severe financial circumstances, Barcelona was unable to sign a new deal. As a result, Messi agreed to join PSG on a two-year contract worth £35 million a season in early August.
The entrance of those players, despite four of them entering for free price, has enraged Tebas, who stated: ‘Currently, PSG spends over €600 million (£515 million) on salaries’ (per year). The French television industry will pay no more than €70 million (£60.1 million).
