“taking [the Supercopa] abroad, right, in my opinion, we tried to do it, but we were not given,” he said Thebes.
“As an idea, I’m not against it, but all the intrigue about who gets how much… there are a few things I don’t agree with. For example, the share of money between clubs other than Real Madrid and Barcelonabut I’ll wait to hear the sound before giving my opinion.”
Leaked audio recordings published by El Confidencial suggest that Gerard Piquéthrough his company Kosmos, is set to cash in on the €24 million deal that brought the Spanish Super Cup to Saudi Arabia, a move that proved unpopular with fans and players alike and is sure to be even more popular now.
