The flexibility of the combined national has allowed to free the month of June, what will allow to have of more dates to fit all the parties in a puzzle that still is for resolving.

This yes, has recalcado in several occasions that the most important is the health and that there will be hastes: "we Come working of telematic way with the UEFA. The competitions have to finalise before 30 June, but this date is not a wall infranqueable. The ideal is that there is justice and all was egalitarian. The competition has to be won in the field and that there are not injustices".

"All have voted of favourable form to these proposals. All the territorial presidents agree in supporting the thesis of the Real Spanish Federation of Football. From the RFEF go to take some sanitary measures a pair of weeks before it restart the competition. The beginning of them remains supeditadas to that the authorities give the seen well", has added, concretising that, for the moment, descartan alternatives like decreeing a champion, the European places or the descents ahead of time.

All the teams expect justice. If the competitions are pactadas of a form, can not change the rules. Therefore, that is our proposal to UEFA. We will invite to LaLiga and to the AFE so that they contribute", has explained.

The leader has admitted that also they value the possible extreme stages, but will bet for fulfilling with the calendar if like this they authorise it the sanitary authorities: "Sometime it will have to restart everything. If the UEFA asks us decide champion or descended, will say them that with which criteria. We want to that it finish . The enclosed door is ours last option, but are supeditados to the decision of the specialists. We do not know when we can go back to play".

The Canarian has not wanted to 'wet' with dates in any moment, since it has underlined that everything will depend on how evolve a delicate situation further of the football. Neither it has given details on what sucedería if the championships lengthen further of the border of the quoted 30 June, in which they finish the agreements of the players, and has left for the UEFA the case of the Champions League, that could opt by eliminatory to only party: "it does not have descartado any possibility, but by hierarchy has to decide it the UEFA".

Before changing of subject, has referred to the final of the Glass of Rey, for which neither has closed any door: "we Valued on 31 May and it communicated to the Real House. Seeing what has happened in the last 10 days have paralysed it. There is not date. The presidents of Athletic Club and Real Sociedad will be in the negotiations, but is important to say that we want to that the final was with fans".

Rubiales Goes back to give a 'stick' to Javier Thebes

In function of how was the competition next year will see how will be the emolumentos. We guarantee the 100 by 100 of the help".

Quarry, helps to the feminine and masculine five-a-side football, official balloons, lower... Everything is one hundred by one hundred guaranteeed. We do not want any uncertainty and go to give until the last euro. We want tranquility. We go to pay until the last euro of what have engaged us", has repeated on the subventions.

"LaLiga Is a body that devotes to sell the rights of television of the clubs. We have under our umbrella a lot of more clubs. We subsidise to a lot of more clubs. How it is possible that now generate an uncertainty when LaLiga had to have ensured this? The RFEF did it with the final of the Glass of Rey. The format of the Glass of Rey and the one of the Supercopa have saved to the modest football", has stood out, before launching another warning by the request of Thebes to make to the footballers the proofs to detect the coronavirus.

In spite of you brush them, it has decided to tend the hand to the patronal and leave to a side the differences that separate them, and has remembered that his collaboration and the one of all the involved in the Spanish football will be key to go out forward in a moment delicate. "Thebes has not called me in the last days and I neither. We are loved of antender to who decide in LaLiga.
