Barca can't play in La Liga if Catalunya gets independence - LFP president

Javier Tebas says that an "inter-state" agreement would have to be reached in order for the Blaugrana to continue participating in the Primera Division

The story is too old to be commented.

I wonder if they would make their own national team

KingPin2402d ago

what a load of crap. monaco are able to play in the french league? so whats the problem here exactly?

if barca exit the spanish league, why bother playing at all. just give the trophies to real madrid.

Stringerbell2401d ago

Yeah and its causing problems in Ligue 1. Ligue 1 wants Monaco to follow the tax rules that the rest of the league plays by and Monaco doesent want to at all. They've even threatened to join the Serie A if they get taxed.

It's only causing problems because the lfp is greedy , incompetent and corrupt a hell . They never had issue with Monaco's status till it had a new rich russian co owner , and even less when Monaco went to CL finals .

And they were having issues with even PSG too

Not going to happen. The Spanish league would be pointless without Barca. Madrid would constantly run away with it.

asmith23062400d ago

Once in a blue moon that a different team other than Barca or Real will win it, especially nowadays when they have such financial power and other previously great clubs such as Valencia have severely declined.

The only reason Madrid and Barcelona have the financial power is because they sell their own TV rights and people pay big for them.

In the entirely theoretical world where Barcelona don't play in the same league instead in some nothing league, they wouldn't get remotely as much money and I daresay Madrid wouldn't get as much either because El Classico is a big sell and people would care less about watching them.

It would lead to both sides degrading somewhat. It is unlikely to happen however just because of the financial reasons.

why do they want independence from spain? what a bunch of fools

How is Catalan economy compared to Spain?

They could become something like the Azoroes Islands are with Portugual, or Hong Kong with China.

Jihaad_cpt2401d ago

You must not be from Spain. You sound pretty ignorant

Gee, it would make the world a whole lot easier if people would just answer questions.

Truth be told I always thought the Basques had a greater case for independence. Kind of like Yugoslavia sure all those countries would have been better off had they stuck together, economically at least. Also just imagine a Yugoslavian football and basketball team in the modern era! But language, religion, racism it all gets in the way to undermine things(especially the latter).

Good let them go, so next time they are in a match playing alone they will have 100% possession. Haha
