La Liga return date revealed by Leganes head coach

La Liga return date

Leganes head coach Javier Aguirre has revealed La Liga plans to resume the campaign on June 20 and finish on July 26.

While any official statement is yet to be made by the league, the Mexican manager claimed the information had been revealed to him by La Liga authorities.

Spanish football authorities have been working closely with the government to find a way to get games back underway in order to finish the season.

“We already have a start date for the league,” Aguirre told Marca Claro MVS. “On June 20, we will start La Liga and in five weeks we will be officially finished, on July 26.

“It will be played on Saturday-Sunday and Wednesday-Thursday, over 11 dates.

“La Liga has just informed me officially and I am very happy about this, because we already have training scheduled. We start tomorrow. Luckily we have passed the tests.”

Spanish teams have this week been returning to their training grounds in order to undergo medical testing, in order for players to return to training.

Players will first move on to individual training in order to regain fitness, before group sessions can begin at a later date – that’s if all goes to plan.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has already revealed plans to introduce five substitutions for each side per match in order to help ease the physical strain on players.

Aguirre is in support of the decision, which is currently pending approval from the Independent Football Association Board (IFAB), the international body which governs the rules of football.

“The federation has just authorized five changes per game,” Aguirre confirmed.

“It seems to me like the most sensible thing because how can you demand 90 minutes from the players when they have been stuck at home, between four walls for 80 days? “To avoid injuries, get them in shape.”

If these plans are confirmed, La Liga would be the latest league to formalise its return from the coronavirus lockdown.
