LaLiga president, Javier Tebas, has said that Cristiano Ronaldo’s presence has not been missed in Spain.
Tebas, however, would love to bring Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho back.
“I would like to have all the best players and all the best managers. I would like to have Mourinho and [Pep] Guardiola for example,” he said according to SportsMail.
When specifically asked about Ronaldo, he replied: “We have worked to make La Liga’s brand above any one player or club.
“Four years ago him leaving would have worried me, on a scale of one to ten, I would have said nine. Now it worries me, on a scale of one to ten, four, or even three.
“If we follow the strategy of the Premier League they haven’t had a Ballon d’Or since Michael Owen and he is now playing the ‘Legends’ circuit.
“And they have not had a lot of players in the ideal 11 of FifPro either but it keeps on being the league that generates the most income in the world.
“And that shows that if you have a brand which is what the Premier League has, then it’s not necessary to have the best players to have the best league in the world.”
