Spanish soccer has long been known to inspire fans and the youth across the globe. It has also been one of the few countries to produce junior teams winning tournaments regularly. However, with hundreds of millions of dollars being used within the Spanish soccer arena, most of its major clubs are bankrupt, and many players have been not receiving their payments for the last few months. This mismanagement has recently been reported all across the sporting world through various journals and raises many concerns about the future of the game in Spain. While the number of players who missed payments exceeds 150, more than 40 professional soccer clubs are nearing bankruptcy in the country.
Many claim that most of the money is shared only between two teams. While Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two major clubs in Spain, the remaining 38 clubs have enough reason to complain about the way they receive the generated $800 million. Although many argue that it is the popularity of the two clubs that allows them to enjoy the major share, most feel that the Spanish soccer money is unjustifiably distributed. Although no one person can be blamed for the absurd circumstances, the argument is slowly turning from being an ambition related issue, to a rich-poor problem, allowing players to be paid well only if they are in the top 1 percent of the country’s professional soccer players.
Experts believe that such a situation can be revoked only if the large amount of money going to the two clubs is partially used in rewards for games played between the other Spanish clubs in the league. However, that needs more than just an explanation of how it is going to be done. Many believe that a redistribution of the wealth needs to be well-planned and managed. If the federation in Spain goes by what the experts say, it can be realistic to expect a fair dissemination of wealth only if the new plans are executed from the beginning of a season. However, many players are eager to find out ways of improving the conditions before the next season begins. The authorities are inevitably more worried about paying the players to whom they already who hundreds of thousands of dollars.
