Barcelona call for the resignation of La Liga president Javier Tebas

The Spanish giants have released an official statement calling for Tebas to step down on account of claims that he presented fall evidence against the club in the ongoing case tying Barcelona to bribing a former match official

Spanish giants Barcelona have fired back against La Liga during the ongoing legal battle that has tied the club to payments sent to former match official Jose Maria Enriquez Negreira, with the club now calling for league president Javier Tebas to resign from office.

Despite a Spanish judge agreeing to hear the case against Barça per reports from CBS Sports, the Catalan outfit has released an official statement claiming that Tebas has, once again, taken targeted measures to try to harm the club, including levying false information against them to fan the fire. Full statement below.

Given the gravity of the information that has appeared today Monday in La Vanguardia in which La Liga president Javier Tebas is linked to the presentation of false evidence to the public prosecutor to incriminate our club, FC Barcelona wishes to expresses its deepest indignation, anger and dismay.

For that reason, we urgently require the La Liga president to appear in public to explain himself, beyond the tweet sent in the early hours by Mr.Tebas, lacking substance and with a threatening tone.

FC Barcelona, as president Joan Laporta repeated in recent weeks, feels itself to be the victim of a media campaign for events that never took place: Barça has never paid referees.

This harassment involves a group of media outlets and opinion writers with varying degrees of intent and with La Liga fanning the flames behind the scenes against out Club, with contributions from its president who has only gone in one direction: trying to condemn us in the public’s eyes before the facts have been judged.

It is not the first time that the president of La Liga has used the media weapons at his disposal to damage FC Barcelona, however, in contrast to his usual nonsense, we could never have imagined that he could try to incriminate our club with false evidence.

The article published today by La Vanguardia is of such gravity that it should put all the clubs in La Liga on alert, given that it talks of practices which are in no way consistent with the job of the president of La Liga.

If only for this fact, that of giving himself powers that do not belong to him, although also for reasons of dignity and respect for the presidency of La Liga, Mr.Tebas should resign from his post. Nevertheless, aware of his obsession with persecuting FC Barcelona and showing his constant averse and manifest dislike of our Club, we understand that the current La Liga president will persist in his efforts to keep damaging our club.

Stay tuned for more as this is a developing story.
