Former Barcelona president Joan Gaspart said La Liga would have been canceled if Real Madrid took first place in the table when the season was suspended. The La Liga campaign is due to return next month, Barcelona holds two points over Madrid, where it remains to play 11 games. But Gaspar, who was president at Barca from 2000 to 2003, said it would be different if Madrid led the league when it was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. “If Madrid had finished as a leader before confinement, La Liga would have ended,” he told reporters. Barcelona star Lionel Messi preparing for life in La Liga after the coronavirus pandemic and admits that it will be strange to play again.

It will be like startin with zero

“I don’t think anyone could see something like this. Some people warned that world pandemics could happen from time to time, but I never imagined that it would unfold as it was, or a huge impact, which it has almost the whole world, “said Messi. “Living or working with such uncertainty is never easy, especially in such an unheard-of situation like this. We are all surprised when we return to work when we start training and competing again.” When we start performing again, it will be like starting with zero. We will have some time to arrange before the start of the league, and we will also get back key players in our squad who were injured. It will still be the same season, but every team and player will feel that it’s different.”

While Barcelona will seek to clinch the La Liga title, they continue to be associated with former star Neymar, who may return to the club from Paris Saint-Germain. Gaspart hopes that the Brazil international will eventually return to Camp Nou. Where he left in 2017 for a record-breaking €222 million ($244 million) for the world. “I would like to see Neymar at Barça. I understand that he can still accord,” he said. “What I don’t know is the fine print. I forgive what it takes to get him back. I would want him to play for Barca.
