Tebas: “If the government says that the competition must be suspended, it will be suspended.”

La Liga president Javier Tebas has explained that the Spanish government will decide if La Liga games will be suspended, but for the time being there won’t be measures taken to prevent La Liga action from going ahead.

“Professional football is not stopping because the government has considered that it is sufficient to play behind closed doors,” Tebas said.

La Liga decided on Tuesday to play the next two matchdays (28 and 29) in Spain’s top two divisions behind closed doors.

At La Liga we must act with responsibility and in absolute coordination with the public authorities that watch over the health of all citizens. La Liga must also ensure the integrity and economic viability of the competition.”
