The president of the Spanish League, Javier Tebas, said the European Super League was only about greed and that curbs on spending, not the quest for more income, was what was needed.

‘If you give these clubs more money the players will have seven Ferraris instead of six,’ Tebas said. ‘The controls on spending is what is needed, not more income.’

Asked if he thought Real Madrid and Barcelona would be able to afford big signings in the future he said: ‘The most important thing for Real Madrid and Barcelona to be able to make important signings is that Manchester City and PSG don’t do anything strange within financial fairplay.

‘I criticize PSG because it’s a state club, both Manchester City and PSG. I will go on defending that position.’

Tebas also slammed the cloak and dagger nature of Sunday’s failed football coup and said the plans for a Super League were riddled with inaccuracies.

‘If it was going to be so good for football they would not have had to do it clandestinely. They would have done it in the open if it was for everyone’s benefit,’ he said.

Speaking at a press conference that included president’s from other La Liga clubs Tebas said: ‘I think the threat is over for a long time. After 20 years of threats of a competition outside of UEFA it came at last but dissolved like a sugar cube. We’ve seen the reaction and that’s the positive.’

Both Tebas and Villarreal president Fernando Roig said they did not want to see the rebel clubs punished.

Arsenal face Villarreal next week in the Europa League semi-final but Roig said: ‘I’m not in favour of anyone being punished, dialogue is the way forward but the solution is not more income but less costs.’

Tebas added: ‘We are in no rush to sanction clubs. These club owners have been punished in a way by the reaction.’

He did call out the ESL’s architects as being either liars or just misinformed. He said: ‘Either they are lying or they are just plain wrong. This will not save football. Besides, Spanish football has paid its taxes during Covid, it has not asked for a government bailout. There is not the catastrophe that Perez says there is.

‘This is a Super League of PowerPoints. There is not enough television rights money in the world to match the sort of figures they were talking about.

‘The league is strong and Barcelona and Real Madrid are what they are because of what they have done in La Liga and in the Champions League and they should respect those competitions.’

Asked about the possibility of Real Madrid’s game with Chelsea now not going ahead next week Tebas said: ‘I think he [Aleksander Ceferin] said there is a only a minimal chance of the game not being played. But this is a competition you volunteer to play. Let’s see if Madrid and Barcelona sign up for next season.’

Shooting down the idea that breakaway clubs would try again he added: ‘They will never get six English teams in or the German teams. The Super League would be a bi-national tournament. It’s dead.’

Mocking Joan Laporta’s backing of the Super League on Thursday he added: ‘If Laporta wants a tournament of two nations’ teams then so be it but I think Laporta has bigger problems.’

Asked if he was surprised by English club involvement he said: I was not surprised by the Glazers or the Americans, these businessmen have franchises in the US where there are closed leagues but that can't happen in Europe.’
