For the second Sunday in a row, head of LaLiga Javier Tebas was a special guest on the 'El Partidazo de Movistar' television show on the #Vamos channel where he analysed the future return of competitive games. Tebas stated: "The idea will be to stage games on every day of the week and this won't be a problem in completing the outstanding fixtures if we play games on a Monday too. I've made this point to the Spanish FA that the concerns traditionally relating to fans doesn't apply in the current context and my hope is that fans of LaLiga around the world can enjoy top flight football every day of the week".

Tebas added the situation regarding the de-escalation of lockdown in each autonomous region was key to a potential 12 June restart and admitted that despite being concerned about players testing positive admitted that in the current situation at training this was almost impossible.

Bundesliga pioneers

The LaLiga chief also took time to congratulate the Bundesliga for being the first major European league to make a comeback after the halt forced by the coronavirus pandemic.

The provinces of Madrid and Barcelona are currently in phase zero of the state of emergency but it's anticipated that restrictions will ease in these areas by the time of the tentative LaLiga restart date.
