Real Madrid held their annual General Assembly meeting earlier today, and club president Florentino Perez touched on a number of things, including Barcelona’s Negreira case.
Perez also took aim at La Liga president Javier Tebas.
Within hours of the speech, Tebas has issued his response, accusing Perez of “very serious lies” during his speech.
He said: “I have listened to Florentino Perez’s speech. Apart from repeating the same thing year after year about young people, TV subscribers… which shows that neither he nor his management team is aware of what is really happening, he adds very serious lies about La Liga.
“He lies about the increase in the president’s salary – no increase – he lies about the transparency of La Liga, he lies about the expropriation of TV rights.
“The only thing that reflects his increasingly unbridled “messianism”, where he wants everything to revolve around what he “thinks”. La Liga is a democratic organisation where the vote is secret, and if Real Madrid are not elected to the delegate commission it will be because he does not have the necessary support.”
