Sevilla coach Michel believes that lack of organisation is "destroying" Spanish football.

Sevilla coach Michel has slammed the authorities running Spanish football and believes that lack of organisation is "destroying" it.

The start of the 2012-13 La Liga season was thrown into doubt this week because of renewed battles between the Spanish clubs and the competing TV companies.

Eventually a new plan of televising Spanish top-flight matches was hatched, with games to be played across Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings.

Michel is disappointed with the whole scenario and laments the lack of organisation in Spanish football.

"We are all guilty of going along with the situation," he said. "Can anybody who loves football put on a game at 11pm on a Monday?

"Seems to me that football is being used by outside interests and that is destroying it.

"Because of this players are going to other leagues, only [Real Madrid and Barcelona] can win and the rest have to fight and work because if you don't, they point the finger at you."

Sevilla will begin their La Liga campaign with a home game against Getafe on Saturday.
