La Liga President Javier Tebas insists the tournament does not miss Cristiano Ronaldo after his move to Juventus, while ‘Serie A hasn’t improved much either.’
Tebas was speaking to Spanish newspaper Marca about the potential departure of Lionel Messi from Barcelona and Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid.
“Obviously, I don’t want them to leave La Liga, but if that were to happen, we’d all have to give more to take up the slack,” said the Liga chief.
“Cristiano Ronaldo left, as some haters reminded me on Twitter. I can assure you that nothing has changed for us. To be honest, I don’t think Serie A has improved much either, they barely noticed his arrival.
“Neymar went to PSG, but Ligue 1 is still only Ligue 1. The La Liga brand and the big clubs that take part are above any individual player, no matter how talented.”
