Javier Tebas is already preparing the LaLiga calendar for when the competition can resume. The idea would be to start on April 16 and end on June 30. A match would be played every 48 hours and the Champions League would coincide with some matches on the weekend
Javier Thebes does not leave to insist in that it wants to restart LaLiga what before and is working for this day in day out. The president of the League of Professional Football has spoken with 'Sportive World' and has left clear which are his ideas to make the calendar with which will finalise the competition. The one of Costa Rica knows that there will be a lot of dates that recover and for this has contrived a plan in which the teams and the footballers do not go to have break.
The plan of the of Saint José would be, as it explains the mentioned newspaper, that the championship begin on 16 April so that like this it can finalise on 30 June. This already supposes a problem by the fact that in other competitions like the Premier League already have lengthened the term until 30 April. In Spain, that is the second more affected country by the COVID-19 of Europe, would not have felt to begin to play before this date, since it could be hurtful for the health of all.
The clubs want to play what before so that his budget do not see prejudiced, but also will be necessary to have the opinion of the players, that up to now have showed in favour of the stop and to place in front the health of all to the football. It was as it was, in this new calendar that is contriving Thebes it is necessary to say that there would be Champions League the weekends, coinciding with LaLiga. The teams involved, already are Barça, Real Madrid or Athletic, would play in this case theMonday . They would be alone 48 hours or less than rest, by what the rotations seems that they aim to be keys.
In 'Cope' also aim that Thebes has this idea to play each 48 hours a lot of weeks, but no that have thought to begin to compete on 16 April. In this sense, signals that the fact to tighten so much the calendar would be precisely in the case that it could not restart before the championship. The deadline that handles the president to be able to finish on 30 June would be on 14 May.
The own leader admitted in an interview that begin to finals of April was almost descartado, by what lto information of 'MD' does not finish to square with these statements. "It is descartado begin to last of April; it would be complicated to finish beginning later of 14 May. Beginning on 14 May would give time to finish on 30 June", explained the responsible maximum of LaLiga.
With all these stages and in front of the doubts, only remains to expect some weeks to see in what remains everything. What is clear is that Thebes has a lot of haste for seeing again football in the stadiums, since the Spanish competition is losing a lot of money these dates of stop. The economic bloodletting will be remarkable whatever happens, but the costarricense knows that if LaLiga finishes, although it was late, the hit will be lower so much for the championship as for all the teams.
