For the mandamás of LaLiga, this is the "worst crisis reputacional of the Spanish football in his history".

"Before they asked after me Negreira and now by Rubiales and all generated by an institution as it is the RFEF in which it carries a lot of years without doing a revolution of people, values, forms of management", affirmed Thebes. In this sense, the president of the maximum competition of the Spanish football considers necessary "to take decisions complicated" to make the necessary changes.

Thebes compares the situation of the RFEF with the actuality of the UEFA

For Thebes, the solution to the crisis in the RFEF goes through a radical change in people and forms, to the equal that in some appearances of the UEFA. "It is not so complicated. It is necessary to take uncomfortable decisions that in the field of the football always costs a lot. I can not share space with To the Khelaïfi and have gone me of the UEFA, for example. But these decisions cost. It will be necessary to change radically in people and in the forms", explained.

Besides, it referred to the 'Fair Play' European and how in England the clubs follow spending a lot of money overlooking the financial controls. "The English clubs lose until 200 or 300 million euros to the year, although the norms of the UEFA and the own Premier establish a limit of 90", warned Thebes, although it recognised that the controls of the English government have increased to avoid these incidents.

Thebes does less to the Arab league and load against the clubs been

Regarding the fortune that have invested the Arab clubs in the market estival, the mandator of LaLiga ensured that it does not concern him the influence of the Saudi league. "They concern me the clubs been because they compete against our clubs, but the Saudi league no. The leagues do not do by dint of players. China or the MLS tried it and fracasaron. Europe is the maximum zone of the industry of the world of the football no by chance but by competitions of tens of years, by centenarian clubs... The player is ephemeral, the club no", sentenced Thebes.

Besides, it took advantage of for 'advise' to the Arab football on how improve his league, putting like example to the competition that directs. "We like League have more than 200 million followers in social networks, the Saudi league to arrive to this has to work a lot. In U.S. does not see the Saudi league, in Africa do not know... It is very far to concern us. It is not between the ten first risks of the European football", puntualizó.

In this regard, it took advantage of to refer to the changes that has implemented LaLiga this year in the television transmissions. "The interviews to the rest, the cameras in the changing room, the micros in the talks of the trainers... It is all a product, is important that the viewer have more minutes and different things. We do not have to invent at all, all the American sports do this. When some trainer says that this violates the privacy... This does in the Premier and do not say at all", argued Thebes.
