La Liga to return from June 8, says Spain’s prime minister

La Liga

La Liga has been given the green light to resume from June 8, after the guidelines from Spain’s Ministry of Health.

La Liga is still yet to officially confirm a date on which football will resume resume, although president Javier Tebas had said he hoped the campaign could do so from June 12.

The Spanish League was suspended on March 23, with Barcelona two points ahead of Real Madrid with all clubs left with 11 games still to play.

The Segunda Division has also been cleared by the government to resume on the same date.

Reacting to the news on Twitter, Tebas said: “We are very happy for the decision, it is the result of the great work of clubs, players, technicians, CSD (National Sports Council) and agents involved.

“But we cannot lower our guard, it is important to follow health regulations and ensure the pandemic doesn’t come back.”

La Liga teams are currently training in small groups of up to 10 people, having returned to individual training in May.

Speaking earlier this month, Tebas soke about his desire to stage games every day once play resumed.

“That’s what I hope,” Tebas said. “We shouldn’t have any problems playing on Mondays across the eleven rounds of matches we have left to play.

“I hope for some sense from the Spanish Football Federation on this, because it’s very important for us to be able to give both our national and international broadcasters, and fans across the world, football on as many days as possible to ensure as little disruption as possible.”

Spain is one of the countries worst affected by the coronavirus pandemic, with more than 28,000 deaths and more than 234,000 cases of infection diagnosed. But the daily death toll has been sdeclining, with 56 deaths reported on Friday.
