La liga president: Messi exit from Spanish Football Will Be Felt More Compared To Cristiano Ronaldo’s

President of Spanish Football Javier Tebas says Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real
Madrid exit in 2018 had no impact on the league but Lionel Messi’s departure will be felt more.

Ronaldo department La liga for Juventus two seasons ago and had a strong competition with Lionel Messi during his time at Real Madrid.

But despite losing Ronaldo to Juventus, Tebas said the switch to Italy had ‘almost no impact’.

“Ronaldo’s departure, even if they are upset in Madrid, had almost no impact because in LaLiga we have been preparing for years for the LaLiga brand to go beyond the players,” Tebas said in an interview with RAC1.

“Messi’s case is different. Messi is the best player in the history of football. We’ve been lucky enough to always have him in our league. I think Messi’s exit would be noticed.”

Eden Hazard was signed as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo but the Belgium International is yet to adapt to the Spanish league.
