As reported by El Diario, Tebas asked Segunda club Fuenlabrada for €130k for providing ‘legal advisory services’ in 2018. Lie some top tier footballers who have problems remembering their tax obligations, Tebas also neglected to mention the matter. Two years earlier, his son jumped onto the clubs board of directors. The club was then in Segunda B, and so fell outside of La Liga’s jurisdiction.
