LaLiga clubs have started testing their players and have engaged in training drills keeping social distancing in check.
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has expressed that he is eager to compete on the field yet again. The club’s players returned to training this Monday and Ramos voiced his opinions regarding the recommencement of the La Liga season.
Bundesliga has become the first major European league to restart their footballing operations amid the coronavirus crisis that has carved a major impact all across the world. Ramos insisted that the La Liga should draw parallels from the topmost league in Germany.
“I’m dying to compete again, for LaLiga to be normal again. We have to be disciplined so that we can get rid of the virus. La Liga will be making the decisions, we have to follow Germany. We like to be with our families but we also need to be flexible,” Ramos remarked to Movistar Plus.
The Santiago Bernabeu would be undergoing reconstruction due to which Real Madrid might end up playing their home games at the Alfredo di Stefano stadium. It is situated at their Valdebebas training ground and is usually utilized to host Castilla’s matches.
The central defender mentioned, “I’d like to play at the Bernabeu but there’s work, what’s important is that we play.” Spain has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has resulted in almost 2,40,000 cases and 26,321 deaths. Almost 1,36,000 individuals have recovered too, which is arguably an encouraging sign.
“We will need time, the country needs football as an economic support and the people need it as a distraction,” suggested the 34-year-old. He further continued, “I want to send a message of support to everyone who has lost a loved one, we’ll get through this and we have to come together.”
The Los Blancos have played 27 games in the LaLiga this season and have secured 56 points. They are separated by their arch-rivals FC Barcelona by merely two points as of now.
