PSG chairman Al-Khelaifi reacts to La Liga lawsuit with extraordinary insult

Although PSG have received a lawsuit from La Liga for renewing Kylian Mbappe’s contract, their chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, doesn’t seem too concerned.

Come the end of the 2021-22 season, fans expected the French star to fulfil his lifelong dream and sign for Real Madrid. But in a twist no one saw coming, PSG managed to convince the forward to remain at Le Parc des Princes.

The Ligue 1 giants allegedly offered to make him ‘owner of the project’. This would give him a say on transfers and the opportunity to pick a manager of his choosing.

This left La Liga furious and out for revenge.

They accused PSG of “continuously breaching financial fair play regulations” and claimed they are guilty of “irregular financing.”

In a statement, they said: “La Liga, this week, filed a complaint with UEFA against PSG, which will join another against Manchester City in April, for understanding that these clubs are continuously breaching the current financial fair play regulations.”

It continued: “La Liga considers that these practices alter the ecosystem and the sustainability of football, harm all European clubs and leagues, and only serve to artificially inflate the market, with money not generated in football itself.”

Spain’s premier division has hired legal firms in France and Switzerland with the intention of taking their complaints all the way to French authorities and the European Union.

But regardless of the sensitive situation, Al-Khelaifi has fired back with some very strong words.

PSG chairman blasts La Liga over lawsuit

If the Spaniards weren’t already annoyed, then they will be after they read what the Qatari businessman had to say.

In an interview with Marca, he gave his unfiltered opinion on the situation and the current state of La Liga.

“Every year, every summer, it’s the same thing. He says we don’t respect the Fair Play, we don’t respect the others? We know what we can do, who we can sign, we know better than him what we can do, and nobody has to tell us what to do.

“We don’t have to be told by someone from outside what we can or cannot do. If we do it, it’s because we can. Look at the case of Messi. It was the same, they said it was financially impossible, and we have made money with Messi. He has no idea, and he should focus on his league because La Liga is a bit dead.”
