The president of Atletico Madrid Enrique Cerezo confessed about “Massive” financial problems in La Liga, if all games will suspended.
“Massive” financial impact from Coronavirus
Atletico de Madrid President Enrique Cerezo emphasized the financial impact that the coronavirus could have on Santander’s LaLiga. LaLiga decided to interrupt the next two matches in the two best divisions of Spain due to a pandemic. While Cerezo pointed to a hit that the league could have taken if it had not returned. “The economic damage is massive. They gave some figures of about 600 million euros – that cannot happen,” Enrique told reporters. “Remember now that clubs get a lot of money from television, and it would be terrible for all clubs to be removed.”
It will continue more than two weeks
When asked if he thinks that actions at LaLiga Santander will resume later than the current two-week stop due to coronavirus, the president of Atlético was incomprehensible.”The fact is that I don’t know, but it seems that it will be so,” said Enrique. “That’s what they say on radio, television and from all journalists; It seems that this will continue for more than two weeks, but I don’t know how far this goes.
“However, Enrique is adamant that he does not want the season to end now.” No, I don’t think,” he said. – But oh well, I’m not an expert in this either. “I hope not for the cause of football, but everyone.” Cerezo is not afraid to potentially catch the coronavirus. He showed that he was going to continue to live his life, as usual. “Tomorrow, I will lead a healthy life, “he replied.” At the moment, I have no symptoms, which means tomorrow I will not have them.”
