LaLiga will have matches EVERY DAY for over a month, says Javier Tebas

por Senaida Horning (2020-05-19)


LaLiga president Javier Tebas has insisted that Spanish league games would be played every day for a month should football make its long-awaited return in June.

Spain's top flight was suspended indefinitely in March following the outbreak of the coronavirus but after two months of isolation, players have started to return to training while adhering to social distancing rules.

The resumption of training has led to hopes that LaLiga can return in the coming weeks, ????? with Tebas pining for a return date of June 12. However, the 57-year-old remains uncertain over the exact date and insists there will be minimal risk to players during matches.

'I don't know when football will return. I don't know if the most probable date is June 19, I would like it to be June 12. It will depend on spikes and contagions,' Tebas told El Partidazo on Movistar. 

'There would be league games daily for 35 days, 24 hours before the game the players will be tested. 

'The lowest risk will be during games, I ask that health regulations are followed to get to the start with as few infected as possible. 

'We're very on top of the control of players, at home I ask that they keep following the protocol.

'Our conduct should be exemplary to society, I see a lot of responsibility on the players.'

When asked about football in Spain's return, Tebas admitted that no dates have been set in stone as of yet.

League officials confirmed on Sunday that two Real Betis stars had the coronavirus following initial testing on players, taking the total in Spain's top two divisions to five.

While there is cause for concern, Tebas is optimistic that the numbers will stay relatively low.

Tebas said: 'You have to adapt to the circumstances and we've worked on protocols, structuring ideas about how to act in the best conditions without causing harm.

'We expected 25-30 positive tests, it's good news for the football industry and Spanish society that there are eight positives, including non-footballers, among 2,500 tests.

'Those players will have another kind of test on Tuesday, they are in the final stages of the illness.'
