“La Liga is a disgrace” – Pellegrini blasts the Spanish League

Real Betis manager, Manuel Pellegrini has called the Spanish La Liga a disgrace and the slowest league in Europe, adding that coaches, players and referees must make an effort to restore the league’s reputation.

The former Manchester City boss says the league is a disgrace for being too slow and says they must do more to stop time-wasting and diving.

Real Betis were held to a 1–1 draw by Cadiz in their league meeting on Friday, and Pellegrini was unhappy his side could not find the winner against such defensive opponents.

The 67-year-old feels the league is being held back by teams that disrupt the flow of matches.

“We have to make an effort between referees, coaches and players so that La Liga is not this shame because in the referees’ meeting they told us that it is the slowest league in Europe,” the Chilean told reporters.

“People want to watch a show, and we’re not giving it to them. The most time-wasting, the most dives, it’s a disgrace.”
