We’ve not had even a single call.“I haven’t seen the contract, so I can’t say much, but I will say this: the Fifa president protects domestic competition, and taking competition somewhere else represents an invasion of that country. Last month, the Spanish players’ union (AFE) held a meeting with a host of top stars, including Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets, and afterwards said it was unanimously against a proposal to place games outside of Spain.La Liga has agreed a 15-year deal with US media company Relevent to promote football in North America.But Rubiales has hit out at La Liga president Javier Tebas with comments that will turn up the heat on the controversial plans.
