lLaLiga president Javier Tebas wants the season to end June 30 amid the coronavirus crisis
LaLiga president Javier Tebas held talks with all 20 clubs on Thursday and made it clear that the plan is still to complete the campaign by June 30.
Cadena Copa claim that Tebas is not optimistic about restarting the competition until at least mid-May, which would require games being played far more regularly than normal.
It is said that a schedule which would see teams playing every two days has been drawn up in a bid to ensure the league sticks to their proposed finish date.
There are still 11 rounds of games to get through, plus the final of the Copa del Rey and the remainder of the Champions League and Europa League campaigns.
On Thursday, Tebas told El Pais: ‘The fundamental scenario is that in the middle, or late May, is the latest start date so that we can complete the season on 30 June.’
Leagues around the world have been given the opportunity to extend their seasons after UEFA made the decision to push back Euro 2020 until the summer of 2021.
On Thursday, the Premier League revealed that they plan to finish the current campaign by the end of June and could restart games from April 30.
