LaLiga president Tebas dismisses Super League as 'a joke'

LaLiga president Javier Tebas has dismissed the threat of the Super League being revived as a "joke".

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus indicated their intention on Friday evening to carry on with the hugely controversial project.

Plans for a redeveloped Super League would involve the competition being 100 per cent open, with no club holding permanent membership.

A new court order issued in Madrid, which the Super League clubs believe serves as an interim injunction preventing UEFA from continuing with disciplinary proceedings against them or even pursuing the proposed peace agreements with the nine clubs who withdrew from the project.

Tebas told the media at a gala event for LaLiga on Friday evening: "First of all, it's the same judge as always, so he was always going to rule in a similar fashion.

"If this particular judge has already made his views on the issue clear, he's not going to change his mind.

"It would be a joke if he did change his mind. In my opinion, the whole thing is a bit of a joke, but it would be even more so if he were to do that."
