La Liga president Javier Tebas has been talking about the future once again and says he is planning for next season to start on September 12.

Teams are currently preparing for the resumption of the 2019-20 campaign in June, and Tebas also offered a bit more detail on how things are looking.

“We’ll restart, if God allows, on June 11,” he said.

“We’re hoping that Madrid and Barcelona pass into Phase Two [of the lockdown de-escalation plan], which is where we can play.

“There are more than 130 people at LaLiga working so that everything can be done in a new way. Travel, organisation, everything.

“We’re prepared and the important thing will be the day we finish the league. We’ll start next season on September 12.”
