Spanish Chief Reveals Europe Wide Target Date

Celtic fans have been handed a title alert today as the La Liga Chief, Javier Tebas, has revealed that plans are in place across Europe for leagues to resume in mid-May. 

The SPFL may have suspended football until 30 April, in line with their English counterparts, however boss of the Spanish game insists that UEFA have plans designed to get the sport back underway just after that date. Tebas told Spanish newspaper, Marca, the plan is to resume all European leagues in the third week of May. “The plan is to be able to resume all European leagues in mid-May. All of them,” Tebas said.

“It will depend on how the pandemic evolves. It could be before, but that is the date we’ve got in mind about being able to resume. We don’t want to change any season. We haven’t planned for that. In this situation, we’re managing scenarios in the short term. If we can’t resolve the short term, we’re going to have more time to approach the long term. Everything at the same time.”

Tebas continued by assuring people that UEFA and all clubs are committed to finishing the season: “I think Uefa are with us and the idea that we have is that and we all know how far we have to go to find a solution to the problem. We’re trying to resume all competitions. A joint ruling for everything. It’s impossible to just resolve the Spanish league.”
