The Supercopa of Spain caused one of the last discussions between LaLiga and the RFEF, that seems that little by little they go approaching postures. Javier Thebes accepts some of the changes implanted but follows criticising the format, since it thinks that only would have to participate two teams
The calendar of the season 2019-20 faces several modifications in Spain, that has adjusted some of his competitions. The last Assembly of the Real Spanish Federation of Football (RFEF) confirmed the changes of format of the Glass of Rey and the Supercopa of Spain, a fact that turned into the most recent reason of another discussion with LaLiga.
Precisely, the president of this last organism, Javier Thebes, went back to think on the Supercopa. The championship premières organisation this year because it happens of August to January -in this case, already of 2020-, and besides will contest in a final to four that will complete FC Barcelona, Valencia, Athletic of Madrid and Real Madrid. This time, this yes, showed something more conciliatory.
"It seems me well where go to play the Supercopa, what does not like me is the format. It has to be a final to two between the champion of League and the champion of Glass", signalled the leader, to the that does not convince the fact to pose some semifinals -foreseen for the days 8 and 9 January- since it would plead for a direct final between the champions -after the eliminatory mentioned, will play on 12 January-.
Besides, puntualizó that "we have to organise it we because it affects to the professional football", doing reference to LaLiga. Although in a principle had showed his opposition to the new regulation of the tournament, now has aimed his criticisms to this appearance, one of the most commented in the last months. Also it has left to fall that it would approve the candidature of Saudi Arabia like headquarters.
The pairings sortearán because the FC Barcelona is winning in LaLiga and finalist in the Glass, a fact that does impossible the crosses programmed -champion of League against finalist of Glass and champion of Glass against second in League-. Beside the Catalans, Valencia -champion of Glass-, Athletic -second qualifier in League-, and Real Madrid -fourth in League and benefited by the presence of the culés-, will be the applicants to the trophy.
The final to four of the Supercopa generates debate
Further of the tensions between the RFEF and LaLiga, what is clear is that the new Supercopa of Spain generates debate. A big number of fans and experts consider that if a club conquers League and Glass would have to be automatically winner of the title, and besides do not finish to support, like the own Thebes, the format of final to four.
