La Liga is planning a return to action that would include league matches everyday from June 12, it’s president Javier Tebas has said.
Several clubs including Barcelona and Real Madrid are back in training in Spain, one of the countries worst hit by coronavirus but Tebas is confident plans put in place would see them deal with the risk posed by the virus.
Five players from the top two divisions have already tested positive for coronavirus but Tebas is planning ahead with a restart.
“I’d like it [the restart date] to be 12 June,” Tebas told Movistar.
“But we have to be careful. It will depend on many factors such as a potential rise in infections, factors which don’t depend on football but on Spanish society.
“The risk during games will be zero, or practically zero, because the players will be tested – with only a 5% possible failure rate – 24 hours before.”
