Tebas: No one has given to LaLiga more than Leo Messi

La Liga pres­i­dent Javier Tebas was full of prais­es for Lionel Mes­si after the MARCA show award on Mon­day. The show took place in Con­vent dels Angels, Barcelona. The Argen­tine was also sur­prised at the award cer­e­mo­ny by receiv­ing the Pichichi (high­est goal scor­er) and Di Ste­fano (best play­er) awards in La Liga San­tander 2017/2018 sea­son.

No one has giv­en to La Liga more than him (Lionel Mes­si) and if he decides to end his career in Spain or most part of it here, I don’t believe any­one has devot­ed more than he has to the com­pe­ti­tion. And for the record, the fact that Cris­tiano Ronal­do has left our com­pe­ti­tion Italy still makes him impor­tant”, said Tebas.

Asked about the game between Bar­ca and Girona which many sees it to take place in Mai­mi, Unit­ed States. “Def­i­nite­ly, the tar­get is for the match to be played out­side of Europe. We are work­ing on the fix­ture to be on the 29th of Jan­u­ary. I believe we have every right to fix it that way and we will make sure we  see it come to real­i­ty until the end.”

Asked about Neymar’s pos­si­ble return to La Liga, “I don’t want to know which team Ney­mar joins if ever he comes back, but I would love to see him here in Spain. I don’t care what team he plays for, it is the job of the clubs to secure him to their own side.”

The pres­i­dent who has also expressed his wish to cre­ate an award just to name it after the Argen­tine. “That would depend on Leo but I would like to see an award in Span­ish foot­ball named after him because he has giv­en a lot to us.”
