President of the Spanish Laliga Javier Tebas has reinstated on plans for Spain’s top flight to restart on June 12.
According to BBC Sport, coronavirus tests will mean “practically zero” risks to players during the games.
It will be recalled that it was reported here recently that “Five players tested positive for Covid-19 in Spain.
The source further reported that La Liga started testing players last week. With plans to resume training and play matches behind closed doors.
“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.”
Spain’s second division would restart at the same time, and national competitions would need to be completed by 31 July. Hopefully, European competitions would finish in August.
