Hit or no, Javier Thebes has decided to resign to his charge like president of LaLiga, a news that for a lot of fans of the Spanish football could be tremendously positive, although it has to read between lines. And it is that the Spanish lawyer presented this Wednesday his renunciation like strategy to advance the announcement of elections, foreseen for next year.

The idea of Thebes seems clear in revalidating his mandate, that finalised the next 26 December, chaining like this the consecutive chamber, at the head of the patronal of clubs of football. The plan of Thebes, that has included this surprising renunciation, seems not having too many fail since it does not foresee opposition in a process that will carry out before it finalise the year, avoiding so it find with the election of a new president of the RFEF.

LaLiga Will have a new president, at least by some days

With this decision, will be the two vice-presidents, Miguel Ángel Gil Marín and Quico Catalan, those who will remain headed by LaLiga provisionally and will be already in the afternoon of the Wednesday when it configure the Electoral Commission. With this month of advance, will be five clubs (three clubs of First Federation and two of Second), that will be chosen by draw in front of notary, the managers of the executive capacity of LaLiga and to ensure the electoral cleaning.

It seems that this decision of Thebes, as many others in which it includes his increase of wage, will not have negative consequences. Already in December of 2019 was chosen without presenting opposition and without need to summon an Extraordinary General Assembly. If it goes back to go out elected and does not present opposition, Thebes would ratify like this the command in LaLiga, as it has the support of almost all the presidents of the 42 professional clubs, what hampers any type of competition in the elections.

A stage that has come repeating in LaLiga

Thebes carries directing the institution from April of 2013, and went only in 2016 when there was a possible threat of direct rival to present to the candidature. It treated of the previous president of the Eíbar, Álex Aranzabal. However, this did not arrive to complete the electoral process after not reaching the necessary number of guarantees to be able to present.
