According to Tebas, Barcelona were in agreement regarding the CVC deal until Perez convinced them to pull out.
The Spanish league chief also reflected on the departure of Lionel Messi from Barcelona earlier this summer and he has revealed that the Argentine’s departure wasn’t for economic reasons and his exit has been a blow for the Spanish league as well.
He said: “Florentino Perez is holding Barcelona hostage. Barcelona were in agreement with the CVC deal for around a month, until Real Madrid said no. There is an inferiority complex in the club with Florentino Perez.”
There were reports earlier that Barcelona’s reluctance to accept the CVC deal led to the Spanish league authorities clamping down on them regarding their wage bill and that led to the departure of Lionel Messi.
Tebas added: “I know for certain that his departure wasn’t for economic reasons and that it could have been avoided. Perhaps Messi’s exit has been the hardest for me because I think he is the best in history. He didn’t deserve to leave like this, not only leaving Barcelona but also La Liga.”
Recently La Liga secured a multi-million pound investment from a private organisation in exchange for sharing a percentage of their revenues for the next few decades.
Real Madrid and Barcelona have been against the move as it would curb their financial freedom for the foreseeable future.
This has not gone down well with Tebas and it will be interesting to see if a resolution is reached with Florentino Perez and Joan Laporta in the next few months.
