Paris Saint-Germain has hit back at Javier Tebas, the La Liga President after he mocked the age of their players and their spending. Tebas has critiqued the spending of Qatar-backed PSG in the past and most recently said the signing of 35-year old Sergio Ramos and 34-year old Lionel Messi from Barcelona was dangerous for football.
“PSG looks like the league of legends given the age of some players. La Liga has young players like Vinicius (Junior). We the problem of PSG, we will solve it. What PSG are doing is as dangerous as the Super League,” Tebas said. “We will continue to grow despite the departure of Messi. We will work against the club states. These clubs are as many enemies as the Super League. The French League did not, like your league, wait until recent years to take actions and put in place strong financial regulations.”
PSG general secretary Victoriano Melero advised Tebas in a letter to try to concentrate on the problems of La Liga. He also revealed that the President should deal with Real Madrid and Barcelona who continue to be committed to a European Super League.
“Time after time, you allow yourself to publicly attack the French League, our club, our players together with players of other clubs and the fans of French football; while constantly posting insulting and defamatory statements insinuating that we do not conform to the football financial regulations, amongst other unsubstantiated statements,” Paris Saint-Germain general secretary Victoriano Melero wrote in a letter to the La Liga President.
