The president of LaLiga, Javier Tebas, warned that the employer's association is not going to make "ad hoc rules" for Argentine striker Lionel Messi to stay at FC Barcelona, who takes the "Loss Cup" because he accumulated "the half ”of the total for the 2020-21 academic year, and praised the“ excellent ”management carried out by Real Madrid during the pandemic.

“Of the 700 million losses forecast for 2020-21, Barcelona is almost half. That gives an image that the rest of the big clubs don't add up to that much. Real Madrid has made an effort so that its figures are very far from those of Barcelona”, he said at the presentation of the economic and financial report for the 2019-20 season.

In this sense, the president of LaLiga pointed out that FC Barcelona is "exceeded" in its salary mass and in order for Leo Messi to play in the 2021-22 course he will have to "make a significant effort". “I trust that it will do so because it is the first team in terms of turnover, but it has to structure the 500 million debt. If he does, his situation will not be serious", assured.

In his opinion, COVID has exacerbated a situation in which Barça had always pushed its salary limit to the maximum, and "when the economy has caught pneumonia, it has not been able to absorb that loss of income." “With a very important reduction in its wage bill and a restructuring of the debt, it will return to a good situation, although not that of three or four years ago, in the market. Messi? The rules are what they are. They will not change. We are not going to make ad hoc rules on the Messi issue ”, he assured.
