La Liga president Javier Tebas has actually leapt to the defense of Barcelona after PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi appeared to take aim at the Catalan giants.

Al-Khelaifi doesn’t seem too happy with Barcelona’s summer spending spree after seeing big-money buys Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde and Raphinha head to the Camp Nou.

Yet Tebas is not having any of it and has hit straight back at the PSG chief.

“There is no magic, Barcelona has sold part of its assets to cover its losses, at PSG instead ‘you open the gas.’ For sustainable football, the first thing is to pay what is owed, RIGHT?”

This is not the first time that Tebas has been critical of PSG. He said back in May that PSG “have numbers that nobody believes in” after Kylian Mbappe renewed his contract at the club.
