The word-war triggered by the transfer of Neymar from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain between the Spanish and French sides continues.
The Brazilian was by far the biggest hero of the summer window. PSG paid 222 million euros for him - enough for covering the clause of the derogation entered into his contract with the "Pride of Catalonia". Moving for such money had to trigger fuss and quarrels. We are witnesses of them to this day.
The LaLiga president, Javier Tebas, was quite involved. The activist had already made it clear that he was not going to accept the actions PSG had done. As he said: "As LaLiga, we condemn unfair competition with state-financed clubs. In the case of PSG we are dealing with a clear example of "financial doping"".
Now Tebas once again commented on the whole matter:
"We caught them peeing into the pool. Neymar did that from the trampoline. We cannot accept anything like that."
"It's not just about PSG, but also Manchester City. We need more revenue from television rights, otherwise they will take all the players with that oil," said LaLiga's chairman at the SoccerEx conference.
