The Government has filed a lawsuit against the President of The league, Javier Tebas, for his alleged relationship with CF Fuenlabrada, a team that had to suspend the match against Deportivo on the last day of LaLiga SmartBank 2019-20 due to several positives for COVID-19.
As Europa Press has learned, the Executive has informed the public ministry of the alleged links of the president of LaLiga with the Madrid club, which runs the risk of being relegated to Second B if it is shown that he did not comply with the anti-coronavirus protocol, after verifying that the competent organs of the employer’s association and the RFEF have taken the matter “to a dead end”.
Thus, last Friday the Ministry of Culture and Sports gave the instruction to go to court after “worrying information” has been happening in recent weeks, said Executive sources, about the alleged links between Tebas and Fuenlabrada that they would have “generated alarm” in “numerous areas” of Spanish sport.
Tebas defended that Fuenlabrada, a club in which one of his sons, Javier Tebas Llanas, is a member of the Board of Directors, did not breach the sanitary protocol and Deportivo-Fueblabrada ended up playing with a local victory (2-1) Despite the fact that ‘Depor’ was relegated to Second B.
The ‘Fuenla’ was left out of the promotion play-off, played by Elche, a team that finally achieved the third and last place for LaLiga Santander 2020-21 after defeat Zaragoza and Girona in the two qualifiers.
