The Spanish championship has always been among the world’s best, but it’s in the last 15 years that it really took off to conquer the world, and, even more, it has been the presence of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo this last decade that helped LaLiga become what it has become.
Real Madrid fans are worried that Ronaldo really means his decision(?) to leave, but LaLiga president Javier Tebas sees the bigger picture, and how the Portuguese’s departure would affect the image of the whole league.
It is not possible to quantify, but would be very important
he told La Sexta, when asked how much Ronaldo’s potential departure hurt the league.
Even more so with the international growth of the League. It would be a great loss for us, an irreparable loss
Tebas said, indirectly hoping that the Portuguese superstar won’t go anywhere.
As for the accusations Ronaldo is facing, regarding concealing a big chunk of his income from 2011 to 2014, the LFP boss seems convinced that the Real Madrid icon is innocent.
Knowing the environment and the professional that it is, I have no doubt that Cristiano is innocent. We live in a time when any news related to the Spanish treasury is to point out criminals. From what I have read, I am convinced that there is no crime
Ronaldo’s ‘lawyer’ said.
