Javier Tebas criticizes the decision of voiding Ligue 1

La Liga president Javier Tebas criticized the decision to call an end of the Ligue 1 season by comparing closed-door matches to work on a conveyor belt or fishing boat as Spanish football draws back. Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, on Tuesday, announced that professional athletes. Including football players, can return to a limited form of training on May 4. The return to exercise is the first of what Sanchez sees in four phases. While the second is a step up in training at the performance centers. In the third stage, before the final stage, open-air events with less than 400 visitors can begin a return to the “new standard”.

 

With a statement by Sanchez, the Spanish government made it clear that, in his opinion. The La Liga season can still be completed, despite the recent cancellation of 400 French Ligue 1 and the Netherlands’ Eredivisie.

Ending the Ligue 1 season now is more dangerous

Tebas criticized France’s decision to end its season altogether because of the coronavirus pandemic. With the League president saying giving up the season is not a wise economic or social decision. Instead, he says he wants Primera Division to return to play, taking all the precautions necessary to keep players and staff safe. “I don’t understand why there would be more danger in playing football behind closed doors. With all precautions than working on a conveyor belt, staying on a fishing vessel on the high seas, etc.,” Tebas said in a statement. “If important economic sectors cannot restart, in a safe and controlled manner, they can disappear. It can happen to professional football.

In Spain, football is an important economic driver that we must step up, like so many others. We continue to focus on this revitalization, responsibly, and adhering to health recommendations as soon as possible. “Barcelona is currently sitting on top of La Liga, retaining two points over Real Madrid rivals for 27 matches. Sevilla and Real Sociedad are now sitting in two other Champions League place: Getafe, Atletico de Madrid, and Valencia – all within five points of third place.
