The president of La Liga is for the exclusion of these three clubs at the origin of the Super League project and will not defend the Spaniards concerned.
President of La Liga, Javier Tebas has never been a big fan of the plan to create a Super League. And it’s an understatement to say it, since he’s even one of its staunch opponents. If the project did not see the light of day, UEFA could however sanction the clubs at the origin of this project by exclusion from European competitions.

In the viewfinder, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Juventus Turin. A sanction with which he agrees and in which he believes. “My personal opinion is that yes the Champions League is ready to be played without Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus”, he explained during the meeting of the Club Advisory Platform.
“We will not defend any Spaniard who would be sanctioned”
“The Champions League has been going well without Manchester United for five years. Milan have also been kicked out of European competitions and the competition has continued to live on. They are not indispensable in Europe. Of course we would like them to play it, but facts are facts and UEFA is going to have to act “, he insisted.
But is this sanction legally applicable? One thing is certain, he will not intervene to save Real and Barça. “I’m not going to dwell on the legal question. What I said is that we, as La Liga, will not defend any Spaniard who would be penalized. The facts have nothing to do with the nationality. If UEFA has the legal means to sanction them, the Spanish La Liga will not say anything. He will defend the majority of his clubs, not one or two “, Javier Tebas promised, particularly determined.
Like him, many European leaders are particularly upset against the clubs behind this project. However, it is still difficult to imagine the possibility of a Champions League without three of the best teams on the continent, which are among the most successful on the list of this prestigious competition.
