A new war between two rivals..
Real Madrid and its president, Florentino Pérez, have gone out of their way to hurt Barcelona in what the media has dubbed the “Negrira case.”
Barcelona has appealed the judicial proceedings and said Real Madrid are a special defendant in the case and an opponent of the Catalan club.
According to the “Liberty” website, Real Madrid sent a detailed document requesting that Barcelona’s appeal be dismissed, believing that Barcelona was accused by the judicial department.
Real Madrid condemned what it called “extraordinarily serious and widespread signs of sporting corruption”, referring to Barcelona’s approach in the case.
The case, which broke out in early 2023, revealed coordination between Barcelona and the former vice-president of the refereeing committee over an “arbitration report” he submitted through his private company in exchange for money he received from the Catalan entity.
