Tebas: China to watch LaLiga over Manchester

LaLiga president Javier Tebas has claimed that more people in China will watch Celta Vigo v Atletico Madrid than the Manchester derby.

The two matches will overlap early on Saturday afternoon, but Tebas believes that the game at Estadio Balaidos will be more widely watched in the country due to it being more readily available on TV.

"In China, it will be more Celta-Atleti than United-City because LaLiga is easier to watch on TV," proclaimed Tebas.

The president was speaking on Cadena Cope, where he also stated that if the temperatures reached 40 degrees during any league match, they should be suspended.
