League, federation to decide when La Liga returns, says Spanish Prime Minister
Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said wait the league come back soon and it will be the leagues and the federation that will decide when the government began to relax coronavirus restrictions
The sports ministry approved the league 's plans on Thursday for clubs to test their players for the coronavirus before they return to training as the league looks to restart the season in June after it was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Spain, one of the most affected countries in Europe with 25,100 deaths, imposed a strict closure in March, confining most of the population to their homes. However, after 49 days, they have now allowed people to leave their homes to exercise.
I'm more of a basketball fanatic than a football fan, but let's hope football returns soon," Sanchez told reporters.
It will be the league and the federation that will decide (when they return).
We have begun to allow individual training for team sports. Hopefully it will be soon, but we will see it sooner on television than in the stadium, I'm afraid.
The squads will return to phase training next week, they will train individually first, then move on to small group training and finally to full group training, which must last at least two weeks before they can return to full competition.
The main sports institutions in Spain and the government sports department are committed to completing the season.
