Barcelona demand La Liga president Javier Tebas to resign following an accusation in La Vanguardia accusing the Catalan club with bribing the referees in Spain.

Important notes from Barca’s statement:

  • Barça asks Tebas to give explanations publicly, not on Twitter.
  • The club accuses La Liga of ‘fanning fire’ in Negreira case.
  • Club says it’s not the first time Tebas has tried to harm them.
  • Asking Tebas to RESIGN.

What happened?

Earlier, La Vanguardia reported that Tebas handed over document to prosecutors in attempt to pointing out that Barca and two former club presidents were involved with payments made to the former vice president of the refereeing committee in Spain.

However, according to the report, the documents were part of another case, not linked to ex-Barca presidents Sandro Rosell or Josep Maria Bartomeu. Moreover, the details of the documents seem to be outdated.

60-year-old Tebas, who has bee known for constantly voicing against the Blaugrana, responded as he went on Twitter and said that the title was ‘false’ and did not “specifically accuse anyone” of anything and accusing the journalist of “slander.”

Barca replied later with an official statement demanding a deeper explanation from Tebas, expressing their “deep anger, indignation and disgust” and demanding the president to step down from his current title.

Tebas against Barca – The War

It seems as if the war between Tebas and Laporta is set to continue on for some time, and the Spanish lawyer who was re-elected in 2019, never been shy to his feeling toward the club, which he should not be.

Tebas asked for the Barcelona President to resign shortly after the Caso Negreira revelations if he could not explain them, and the Blaugrana have now responded in kind.

Laporta was also the first to coin the term ‘obsession’, to describe what he believes to be a campaign from Tebas.

Full statement from Barca

Given the gravity of the information that has appeared today Monday in La Vanguardia in which the 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 require the La Liga president urgently to appear in public to explain himself, beyond the tweet sent in the early hours by Mr.Tebas, lacking study and with a threatening veneer.

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 is 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 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.
