Javier Tebas reveals La Liga’s stance on Real Madrid and Sevilla officials beef

La Liga president Javier Tebas has commented on the ongoing dispute between Real Madrid and Sevilla over referees’ videos.

Before their match against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu last weekend, Sevilla made a statement announcing that they had filed a report against their opponents with the Spanish Football Federation’s Competition Committee.

This was due to Real Madrid’s continued use of Real Madrid TV to showcase referees’ “errors” ahead of their upcoming games, including the match against Sevilla on Sunday.

Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido Carrasco had previously voiced concerns about this issue earlier in the season. Now, he has escalated the matter by submitting a formal complaint to the Federation. The Competition Committee will now deliberate on whether to launch an investigation in the coming days.

According to reports, La Liga plans to support Sevilla if an investigation is initiated, as confirmed by their president Javier Tebas during a media address on Tuesday, as reported by Diario AS.

“We are not entitled to file a complaint. We’re going to show up, and I think that the issue of Real Madrid TV is an issue that goes against the good sporting order. It’s okay to criticise, to say that sometimes things aren’t right, but it’s always the scolding, the superiority, when I think that Real Madrid, as a club, can’t have that argument.”

Real Madrid is not concerned about facing sanctions regarding the issue and plans to persist in releasing these videos through its television channel, despite the complaint from Sevilla.
