Latest News La Liga: The Match Will Resume Again Starting May 28

Good news for you fans of the Spanish La Liga. Because the President of La Liga, Javier Tebas, said if the La Liga competition will be resumed again starting on May 28 later. Even so, he admitted if that date has not become a certainty date to continue La Liga competition.

According to him, the date was one of the three dates planned by his party together with UEFA. The other three dates are May 28, June 6, and July 28.

As for the official date of the training process itself, he admitted that he had not yet decided on it. This is because the decision is entirely held by the authorities in Spain itself. Even so, he was quite optimistic that if later in between the three dates that had been proposed, there would be a training session before those dates.

Spain has imposed a state of emergency in its territory until April 26. Because of this decision, La Liga activities were finally stopped for a while. The last match carried out by the Spanish team itself was last carried out on 11 March, when Atletico Madrid managed to get rid of Liverpool in a Champions League match.

Javier Tebas decided to continue the domestic league rather than stop it. Because the remaining matches for this season alone are only 11 matches left. He has also admitted that if there are various options to be chosen later following the conditions that are happening so that the game is still possible to continue.

His trust is increasingly due to the decision of the UEFA itself to postpone the European Cup championship a year from the schedule. According to him, of course, this could be an opportunity to complete the remaining competition league and also help the players to prepare themselves later.

Javier Tebas also did not dismiss options such as playing a match without an audience would be the choice that must be taken to pursue the rest of the remaining league competition. Even so, if this choice is made, he hopes that the readiness in the medical department must be fully prepared to prevent various undesirable things later.

Not to mention the losses that have been experienced by the club over the coronavirus outbreak that is happening right now. He dared to estimate the approximate losses suffered by the club each worth 1 billion euros.

Therefore, to minimize this problem, the La Liga operators themselves have appealed to Spanish clubs to cut salaries of their players so that they can help finance the club and still be able to pay workers at the club. This is because in the calculation of Spanish GDP, 1.37 percent of which is the salaries of professional soccer players.

This action was originally carried out by Barcelona, where they have cut salaries to their players by 70 percent. Similar steps were also followed by rival clubs, Atletico Madrid. They impose pay cuts on almost all players. Not only that, but donations also came from the core players, managers, to the main directors to guarantee full payment for workers at the club.

Rock-headed England League Players during Coronavirus Pandemic

The Coronavirus pandemic keeps going and going worse since January 2020. The pandemic gave a lot of effects on many aspects, including the economic status in the football clubs. A lot of football clubs in the Europe league decide to cut salaries, so the clubs can keep operating during the pandemic crisis. 

There are no incomes the clubs got from anything during the pandemic. People don’t buy tickets to watch the match, visiting the clubs’ museum, or any facilities owned by the clubs. The clubs do not get a broadcast right and fund either. This is because of the government’s decision to quarantine and lockdown any activities. This is the act to make sure there are no more significant cases and casualties of the virus.

There are some good things that happen during the Coronavirus pandemic. A lot of football players in the European league willingly cut their salaries, so the clubs’ employees (employees that aren’t players) are getting their full salary. This includes the fee about the stadium or any other facilities maintenance too. The clubs must operate as usual while there is no income, and the kind football players make sure that the clubs’ employees can survive during the crisis of the virus pandemic.

In England, things went differently, unlike the rest of European clubs from other countries. A lot of football players in Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur do not want their salaries to be cut. As a result of their actions, a lot of non-player employees have to lay off during the crisis. 

If the England football players are willing to cut their salary, things like this won’t even happen. Employees will stay working and get their full salary. Because employees are not as rich as the football players, especially for employees that work to maintain the stadium and other clubs’ facilities. Meanwhile, the salary of football players in the England league is considered to be the highest now. Around 20 Premier League clubs spent 58,7 million pounds sterling to pay their players yearly. On the other side of the Europa league, such as Spain’s La Liga, only spent around 40,7 million pounds sterling yearly. Italy spent around 30 million pounds sterling. German Bundesliga and Ligue 1 France are below 30 million pounds sterling.

The attitude between England’s football players are too different from players from other countries in Europe. As an example, Barcelona players, such as Lionel Messi and his friends, are willing to cut their salary to 70% so the club can survive the crisis, including the employees as well. They did this to make sure that the employees will get a full 100% salary as the usual day before the pandemic happened. 

As a summary, the Coronavirus pandemic affected a lot of aspects in the football world. Football clubs must survive the pandemic crisis while there’s no income. So, the best thing to do is to cut the players’ salaries. However, Premier League players don’t want to get cut. As a result, clubs’ employees never reached economic prosperity during the pandemic crisis.
