The initiative will demolish La Liga, according to President Javier Tebas. Who lashed out at Barcelona and the other Superleague teams for attempting to “steal his house.”

Despite the fact that the dispute has nothing to do with the Superleague. News has emerged that the two organizations would appear in court together.

According to Sport, Barcelona filed a lawsuit in a local commercial court, arguing that other teams have an unfair edge and that the competition is unfair.
