La Liga president Javier Tebas said he is “convinced” the Spanish top-flight season will finish. The league was suspended on Thursday after the Real Madrid squad went into quarantine, while five Valencia players and staff have tested positive for coronavirus. Spain is the second worst-hit country in Europe after Italy and is set to declare a national lockdown on Monday.
“I am convinced that we are going to end the season. We are working with other leagues to match dates,” Tebas told Cadena COPE. “I have had contacts with Italy, Germany. The approach for now is to see what happens on Tuesday with Euro 2020 and then decide. “The news is to see how we finish the championship if there is no Euro because, if not, we are going to have serious problems. “We must be in good health, which is the first thing, of course. If the competitions are suspended, everything is reviewed and the income is much lower. “All team budgets will be compromised if the competition is not over, but I am convinced that it will end.”
