Malaga (EFE) , that “he is making a mistake with his victimization tactic.”
The alleged payments from Barça to the former vice-president of the referees José María Enríquez Negreira is an issue that “takes away sleep” for Tebas because it is “the most serious reputational and integrity issue in the competition” that “has happened to them in the history of the football”, he acknowledged in an interview at the ‘Marca Sport Weekend’ that is being held in Malaga.
Regarding the president of Barça, Joan Laporta, he stated that it is “complicated” for him that he can “continue presiding for so long without giving an explanation, we will see what happens when he gives explanations” because what happened with the Negreira Case “is a very serious issue in the sports field and I think criminal ”.
“You have to differentiate two issues,” continued Tebas, for whom “one thing is that referees have been bought, that there is no evidence of that and I think not, and another is paying to influence decisions,” and that payment would be “a very serious conduct.”
Tebas criticizes that Barcelona does not give more explanations about the Negreira Case
From FC Barcelona “they transmit calm, but we need explanations. I think they should be worried”, added the president of LaLiga, who added that “an hour and a half after giving the news, Barça took out a note saying that they all did it” and “from there, there are no more explanations “, critical.
“I don’t think the tactic of victimhood and hugging the flag is the most correct right now, I think Barça is making a mistake there,” Tebas stressed, addressing the management that the Barça club is making of these accusations to which UEFA has also entered to investigate.
