Coronavirus: An example of following the Bundesliga

Cologne and Mainz drew 2-2 on Sunday

La Liga President Javier Tevez has congratulated the Bundesliga for returning to acting and setting an example for others to follow.

After a gap of two months due to the coronavirus epidemic, Germany’s top aircraft became the first major European league this weekend.

All the game is being played behind closed doors, while most people are not on the field wearing masks and observing social distance protocols.

Spain is among the countries most affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, with more than 227,000 confirmed and more than 277,000 dead.

Tebas was impressed with the work done to get the Bundesliga back and run it and was happy to get a blueprint to follow.

“I am very satisfied. Congratulations to the Bundesliga CEO,” Tebas told El Partidazo.

“They have done very important work and I am very proud. It is an example to follow.”

There is no final word on when Tabaga will start again and want to play the games on Monday, which fans have regularly protested and opposed to the president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation, Luis Rubiels.

“It will be determined by the health authorities. I want it as soon as possible. We have been working on the reconstruction since June 12,” Tebas said.

“I hope it’s on Monday and there’s sensitivity on the part of the federation. The problem for the fans is no longer in this situation.”

La Liga clubs were able to open their facilities for individual training sessions last week and could start working in limited groups from Monday.

“Players need to concentrate. Each new episode lets you stay with more people and you have to be careful,” Tebas said.

“With the security system we have, it’s virtually impossible for training to be contagious.”
