The LaLiga chief made it clear that Vinicius was not the target of his attack and said that he reacted in the “heat of the moment.”
“If we were given those capabilities, we would end this in a matter of months. I apologise to Vinicius and to anyone that understood that I was attacking Vinicius. I think it’s pretty safe to say that the explosion that happened led to the actions and let’s hope it stays like this. If we continue with the status quo, we in La Liga have our doubts.” Tebas said.
