Real Madrid wants to participate in a corruption case against FC Barcelona, the leaders of La Liga in Spain, as the party concerned.
UEFA star David Alaba’s employer stated that this was decided to “protect the legitimate interests” of the capital club on Sunday at a board meeting. She added that one of them would take part in the procedure “as soon as the judge opens it to the injured.”
Real Madrid is “very concerned” about the seriousness of the matter, but the club has “full confidence in the judicial process”. In the case of payments of millions of euros from FC Barcelona to a former refereeing official, the public prosecutor’s office filed a complaint on Friday on suspicion of corruption. The Catalan club paid money to the former vice-chairman of the Referees Committee, Jose Maria Enriquez Negrera. A spokeswoman for the judiciary said that the investigators concluded that the amounts served in favor of Barcelona in the decision-making process by the referees.
Between 2001 and 2018, the club paid more than 7.3 million euros. The ad is directed against Enriquez Negrera and the club, as well as against his former presidents Sandro Rosell, Josep Maria Bartomeu and other former Barcelona officials. Both club representatives and Enriquez Negrera acknowledged the business connections, but at the same time dismissed allegations of corruption. The current president of FC Barcelona, Joan Laporta, said weeks ago that the club used advisory services. He stressed that this was “very normal in football in the big clubs.”
Enriquez Negrera was a referee in Spain’s First Division between 1977 and 1992 and then vice-president of the CTA between 1994 and 2018. The 77-year-old Cadena Sir said that as vice-president of the CTA he did not give FC Barcelona preferential treatment in any decision or appointment of a referee. . His company Dasniel 95 SL verbally advised the club, for example on how players should behave depending on the referee.
