LaLiga chief says PSG only 'league of legends because of their players' age' after signing Messi, 34, and Ramos, 35

LALIGA'S president has blasted mega-spenders PSG as "the enemy" and "as dangerous as the Super League" after they signed veteran greats Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos.

Javier Tebas derided the French giants as the "league of legends" due to the duo's age.

PSG are paying 34-year-old Barcelona icon Messi £53million a year, while ex-Real Madrid defender Ramos, 35, will receive more than £10m a season.

But former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has also brought in two 22-year-olds, Inter Milan wing-back Achraf Hakimi and AC Milan's Italy keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

And PSG'S fifth famed recruit of the summer is 'only' 30, Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

But Tebas is scathing of the Parisians' open cheque book policy, particularly their pouncing on Messi and Ramos.

He told a press conference: "PSG looks like the league of legends given the age of some players.

"'LaLiga has young players like Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid). The problem of PSG, we will solve it. 

"What PSG are doing is as dangerous as the Super League."

Tebas also promised to "work against club states" like PSG, whose owners Qatar Sports Investments pump in huge sums.

He added: "We will continue to grow despite the departure of Messi. 


"These clubs are as much enemies as the Super League."

But PSG General Secretary Victoriano Melero hit back, saying "certain Spanish clubs and your League are facing unsustainable levels of debt after gross mismanagement".

Melero added: "The French League did not, like your League, wait until recent years to take actions and put in place strong financial regulations."
