La Liga president Javier Tebas has said he wants to resume the 2019-20 campaign on June 12th and thinks matches will be played every day for a month in order to complete the season.

The competition was suspended indefinitely in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but clubs have returned to training this week with a view to resuming the competition next month.

There’s still no confirmed start date for La Liga, but Tebas has provided an update on when he thinks we might see Spain’s top flight in action once again.

“I don’t know when football will return. I don’t know if the most probable date is June 19, I would like it to be June 12. It will depend on spikes and contagions.

“There would be league games daily for 35 days.

“24 hours before the game the players will be tested. There is more risk at home than in games. I see no risk because I am confident that sanitary standards will be followed.”
