They have been hours convulsas in the Spanish football. In the morning of the Monday, the newspaper 'The Confidential' spread some audios between the president of the Real Spanish Federation of Football, Luis Rubiales, and the player of the FC Barcelona, Gerard Hammered. In these listens speak to both characters to agree a commission for moving the Supercopa of Spain to Saudi Arabia, what has generated a grandísima controversy in the country. Said emolumentos rondarían between the 24 million euros, that would go allocated to Kosmos Global Holding, S. L., the company founded by the central Catalan.

Now, Javier Thebes has pronounced in this regard of the controversy that surrounds to the Federation. The president of LaLiga assisted to the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell-Trophy Conde of Godó, where was questioned by several means about the sucedido. On the audios filtered, the mandator ensured that "I have not heard them still. It is a subject in which until the involved do not give his opinion, do not go to say at all".

On the organisation of the Supercopa and the monetary distribution between the clubs participants, Thebes affirmed not knowing at all in relation to what circulates. "The Supercopa is a tournament that organises the Federation. I do not know if they are true the agreements of what speaks here, if it is truth, as I have seen in a headline, that delivered the greater part between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid and to the others gave them crumbs... They will be they those who have to say if it is truth or no. The veracity of the audios will have to determine them they", aseveró.

However, when being insisted on the uneven distribution between the Barça and the Madrid in comparison to other clubs, the president confirmed that there has not been transparency in this regard. "I have not read well all what there is and do not know. Yes it is truth that Valencia was very quejoso with the distribution and can be coincident with the headlines that have seen. Yes that I do not agree with what earn clubs that are not Barcelona and Real Madrid. Already it seemed that the distribution was like this because Valencia had an important complaint in this regard. Never it was transparent the distribution of the money of the Supercopa and did not explain well. I know that there were some disequilibriums in which, except Barcelona and Madrid, the clubs did not agree"

Rubiales Would have to resign?

Thebes also was interrogated on the possible resignation of Luis Rubiales. The maximum mandator of the Spanish competition showed wary and did not want to 'wet' without before indagar well on the subject. "I do not go to do speculations neither want to advance me to events. When it can tonight, I will read it and I expect that the involved say something. Yes it is strong but want to expect". It expressed.

Besides, it was consulted on the relation between Kosmos and LaLiga. Thebes sustained that it is merely commercial, when ensuring that "Kosmos has participated in the agreement that have with the bottom that manages Port Adventure. It is an agreement to commercial level. There is a sports coffee bar, is a way of a technological application and way of a park of attractions of LaLiga there". Likewise, it added that "it is not a subject of organisation of tournaments neither at all. The links between LaLiga and Kosmos is of business but can not play parties of League or Glass there".

Finally, it spoke about the Supercopa and the fact that it play in another country, and showed in favour. "That the Supercopa went to Arabia said that it seems me correct. We have wanted to take out a party of League to United States and did not leave us. Perhaps the ideal was another country. It does not have my opposition take out the tournament out of Spain. Rather I agree", it concluded
