Spanish Health Minister Salvador Ila has warned that football might not return to the country before the summer.
LaLiga President Javier Tebas met with the chairman of the Spanish Football Association (RFEF), Luis Rubiales, last week to discuss his return to the Health Council with coronavirus after more than a month of inactivity.
However, at a press conference on Sunday, Ela said, “I cannot say that football will start again before summer. It will be cruel to me.”
“For all teams, including football, orders from the Ministry of Health remain. We all have to go in the same direction.”
“We need to continue to see how things work to analyze how different professional activities can come back,” he said. “Things will not be the same as before. Even though there is no vaccine, we must learn to live with this virus, which I believe is dangerous and must be respected.
