Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Youssouf Fofana’s “Little brother” interview!
Since Wednesday evening, it is a scandal which agitates Spain. Did Antoine Griezmann score or not against Espanyol in a match where the final score (3-3) weighs very heavy for the Catalan club, which is approaching relegation. Impossible to know for sure, especially since La Liga has VAR but not goal-line technology, the almost infallible technology for knowing if a ball has crossed the goal line.
A license that Tebas does not want to pay
A decision which would be due to a financial question! Indeed, on the Cadena SER, the former Spanish referee Iturralde Gonzalez revealed that if the goal-line was not present in Spain, it is because Javier Tebas and La Liga refused to pay three and a half million in euros at FIFA!
“The goal-line license is granted by FIFA, this technology costs three and a half million euros. Tebas and LaLiga do not want to give this money to FIFA”.
A controversial decision that should not change since still according to Spanish radio, Javier Tebas would not intend to pay this check for next season.
To sum up
The controversy swells in Spain as La Liga refuses to pay 3.5 million euros to FIFA for goal-line technology. A shocking revelation made by former referee Iturralde Gonzalez. Despite this, Javier Tebas and LaLiga persist in their refusal to pay this sum for next season.
