In the middle of all the furor by the Balloon of Gold of Leo Messi, Javier Thebes​ announced his resignation like president of LaLiga. The already ex maximum mandator of the Spanish competition, nevertheless, will not leave as well as like this. His announced left clear that only resigns to summon elections and present again to the charge. The one of Costa Rica does not have any wish to abandon and his aim is to go out reelected for four years.

"With date of today Monday 2 December, to the 21 hours, have decided to resign of my charge of president, so that it initiate an electoral process, to the cual think me present, and expect to achieve the confidence by four years more", explained Thebes in his communiqué. Still there is not date for the elections and neither knows if there will be more candidates.

The ex president of LaLiga detailed in his communiqué the reasons that have carried him to take this decision. The first, is related with the rights of TV. "We have to try give to the institution the maximum possible stability, LaLiga has the enormous responsibility to manage the active elder of the clubs/sad, that are his audiovisual rights. The period of the current mandate finishes at the beginning of October of 2020 and the contest of national rights of tv for the trienio June 22/25 will be between March and June of 2021. In my opinion, too close up of the electoral process", affirmed.

Another of the reasons by which has resigned is the political situation in Spain, in which still there is not a government formed. "It goes to initiate a new political course, where is possible that pose in our national Parliament and in the European Parliament laws and managerial that affect to our institution. To be able to speak with all the actors involved, think that it is not well do it with a mandate to the that remain him some months", signalled.

The new Superliga European could prejudice gravely to the national competitions and Thebes thinks that can do more so that this do not occur with a long mandate. "During this season, LaLiga has led the opposition to the reforms of the European competitions and the defence of your active audiovisual so that the same do not lose value", said, defending his management.

The last reason of his course

Finally, in the communiqué, the ex president of LaLiga also highlighted the importance of the course of Javier Gómez, ex general director of the competition, to take his decision. "The exit of Javier Gómez during this month of December, also is important in the taking of this decision. We have been a tandem that has worked to perfection. Javier is insustituible", finalised.
