Rafael Ramos, who heads the Spanish Association of physicians of football clubs, said that could change in Spanish football, when they resume La Liga, interrupted pandemic coronavirus:
“With all due respect to the decisions of the La Liga at the moment, we do not understand how will look the rules to the resumption of football. When you can do the transition from training to competition – the big unknown at the moment.
We are concerned not only with the virus. Players competed for eight weeks, and not everyone had the opportunity to work physically. We don’t know how much time it will take to restore the condition, avoiding injuries. Need to increase the preparation time that the risks were minimal.
All materials used, including the ball and the lawn needs to be sterilized before the match, at halftime and after the game. The ball you don’t know can infect when you punch in the face. But sterile ball rolling on a sterilized surface, almost can not.
Football, whatever we wanted will never be the same. In the beginning players won’t have contacts as before. They will play different football. For example, when the corner the players should not touch each other.”
