The Spanish Super in Saudi Arabia .. Audio leaks reveal the method of “dividing money”

A Spanish newspaper published audio recordings that reveal how the funds for the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia were divided between the president of the Spanish Football Association, Luis Rubiales, and Barcelona defender Gerard Pique.

The report of the newspaper el confidencial, published on Monday, explains how the Spanish Football Federation and the company “Cosmos” owned by Barcelona player Pique worked together to organize the tournament in Saudi Arabia, starting in 2019.

And the Spanish Super Cup moved to Saudi Arabia after an agreement that extends until 2029, but it caused criticism inside and outside Spain.

The newspaper revealed that the Spanish Football Federation signed a contract worth 40 million euros for each copy of the Super Cup held in the Kingdom, while Cosmos will receive 4 million euros for each tournament held over six years, or 24 million euros.

In one of these recordings, Pique responds to Rubiales’ suggestion that Real Madrid will not play outside Spain for less than 8 million euros.

In the recording, Pique is heard saying: “If it was about money and Real Madrid would go for 8 million euros, they would get 8 million euros, and Barcelona would get 8 million euros too, then the others would get two million euros and one million euros… That’s 19 million euros and you The Federation retains six million euros.

In the clip, he is heard saying that the kingdom can be “paid” to get more, and we say that if they don’t agree, Real Madrid may not go there.

He says this is better than Spain hosting the tournament “where you won’t even earn 3 million euros. Think about that.”
