Javier Tebas took to social media to hit back at Pep Guardiola, who had previously advised the LaLiga president to learn from those who manage the Premier League.
Tweeting in Catalan and accompanying his posts with some graphs, Tebas broke down the main differences between LaLiga and the Premier League in terms of income and hit out at Manchester City‘s owners.
“In recent years we have reduced the distance with the Premier League despite the fact that LaLiga has sold its television rights centrally for only seven years, compared to the Premier’s 30 [years],” wrote Tebas
“In addition, the UK has twenty million more inhabitants than Spain. We grow every year.
“Our clubs have been profiting for seven years. You have to worry more about the City Group, which has accumulated a billion in losses in recent seasons.
“They are not investors. They are money destroyers who create inflation. Would you have won so many titles without economic doping?”
The feud between the two men began on Monday when Guardiola criticised Tebas’ management as LaLiga’s president, who responded the same night on social media.
Tebas also publicly replied through his Twitter account to former Barcelona director Xavier Sala-i-Martin, who questioned LaLiga’s low income despite the Spanish teams’ recent successes in Europe.
