Tebas: "If the Miami game doesn't take place next year it will the following"
The president of LaLiga refuses to throw in the towel over the Miami game initiative maintaining that a league game will take place there in the future.
President of LaLiga, Javier Tebas spoke to the assembled media ahead of the Marca awards that take place today in the city of Barcelona. The head of the Spanish league reflected on the game in Miami initiative and a proposal to generate an award bearing the name of Lionel Messi upon the Barcelona stars' retirement.
Miami game: “We've filed a claim and are waiting for an answer. If I get to talk to Bartomeu I'm sure it's one of the matters we'll review”. “The plan is to ensure that if the game doesn't go ahead next year that it does the following. We have a right to stage the game there and will fight in order to do so”.
Messi prize: “There is no new news on that front but it's an idea I like. I hope it's a move the player is willing to go along with when he hangs up his boots. The domestic game has never had a player of his quality for such a prolonged spell and if he retires here it's an initiative to pursue”.
