Welcome to reality: Malaga owner Sheikh Al-Thani blows fuse over lopsided Spanish TV rights

Malaga owner Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Al Thani has blown a fuse over Spanish football's lopsided television rights agreement.

Unlike the Premier League, which shells out the proceeds of TV revenue equally to all 20 clubs, the Spanish Liga overwhelmingly favours Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Al Thani took to Twitter to voice his anger: "My letter is directed to the press in general:

"I want to open an investigation to the free media that are non-politicized by big clubs that takes into their interests If it possible that a second division takes 29 million euro for the Tv right? And us first division take ONLY 13 million euros ?

"where is this the justice how will we play right when the first and second receive each one individually in the range of 140 million euros and the third in the range of 65 million euros. I demand for making the right and equal all teams Tv rights and there is something else which is that there is corruption and bribes by some clubs (without mentioning any names) for small clubs, to not speak or ask for an equal tv rights , how will the teams develop there clubs and in the interest of the league which is the first worldwide while these things happen so and in the interest of the league which is the first worldwide while these things happen so I ask for an investigation from media who are non-politicized from the clubs and you know them well if these thing continues to this limit will be the clubs threatened and Bankruptcy and fall suddenly and this is very dangerous and detrimental to the reputation of the Spanish league I hope my message is clear for all ,,, Everyone knew my intention Thanks"
