Italian Serie A, French Ligue1 doing fine without Messi, Ronaldo – LaLiga President

La Liga President, Javier Tebas has said that the departure of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid and Barcelona did not harm the Spanish league at all.

He also noted that the two superstars did not change anything in their previous leagues, French Ligue 1 and Italian Serie A respectively.

Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Juventus while Messi joined Ligue1 champions, PSG and Tebas told A Bola that while both players were huge, their exits did not damage the league.

He added that the Ligue1 and Serie A did not benefit from the moves either.

“[Messi and Ronaldo leaving] didn’t cause any damage because we didn’t shrink, but with them, we would certainly have grown faster.

“The French league with Messi, Neymar and Mbappe didn’t grow, Cristiano Ronaldo went to Italy and Italian football [revenue] has not improved, ours did even though we lost them both,” Tebas said.
