Following an accusation in La Vanguardia, Barcelona has openly demanded that La Liga President Javier Tebas resign. The complaint released by La Vanguardia claims that Tebas provided fraudulent evidence to the public prosecutor in the El Caso Negreira case, to which Tebas has reacted.
Barcelona urges Javier Tebas to resign
Barcelona has voiced “anger, dismay, and indignation” at what they call “false evidence to incriminate our club.” The statement continues, claiming they are the “victims of a media campaign,” with La Liga “fanning the flames behind the scenes.”
‘As opposed to his normal rubbish.’ ‘We could never have anticipated he would provide false evidence to incriminate us,’ the statement says. The harsh tone continues, with charges of using the media to sway public opinion against Barcelona as a result of his ‘obsession’ and manifest hate’ of the city.
The statement concludes by asking for Tebas’ resignation if he fails to explain himself beyond the tweet publicly. The fight between Tebas and Laporta seemed to be going on for a long time. Tebas asked the Barcelona President to quit shortly after the Caso Negreira disclosures, and the Blaugrana have now responded in kind. Laporta was also the first to use the term “obsession” to describe what he perceives as a Tebas campaign.
