Spanish La Liga knocks down talk of June 20 restart

 

MADRID, May 7 (Reuters) - La Liga has refused to confirm Leganes coach Javier Aguirre’s announcement that the Spanish soccer season will re-start on June 20 after being halted for more than three months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

 

“We now have a start date for the league, we begin on June 20 and finish officially on July 26. We will play 11 rounds of matches on Saturdays and Sundays and Wednesdays and Thursdays,” said Aguirre, whose Leganes side are 19th in the standings.

 

La Liga has just told me this officially and I’m very happy that we now have our training programme scheduled.”
