The organisms that govern the world of the football have recalcado that the health is the first, but already look for solutions to a calendar that has remained entirely broken. In Spain, LaLiga detains by two weeks in the Day 27, still with 11 more for contesting and looking askance to the Champions and the Europe League, descompensadas by the parties to enclosed door and the cancelled that have left crosses to half close.

Javier Thebes already informed that the Commissions of the competent organisms studied how act in front of any possible stage, and recalcó that would try complete all the competitions repositioning the corresponding crashes in the dates that were free.
