One of Real Madrid’s most successful left-backs, Marcelo Vieira has opened up on the La Liga return after the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic for a couple of months. As per the plans, La Liga will resume from June 17, and the season will end by July 18-19.

The Spanish top flight has been suspended since March because of the coronavirus but will be back next month. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez confirmed in an address to the nation that many daily activities will be allowed to start up again, confirming the date football will be allowed to be played again

“We had never gone so long without being able to train out on the pitch and our desire to play football has been growing ever since we stopped. Now we’re close to getting going again and we can’t wait,” official website of Real Madrid quoted Marcelo as saying.

“It’s been different to what we’re used to. We have to take the positives from it and now we’re used to the routine; it’s not like it used to be but everything’s good. We’re all healthy, the training sessions have been fantastic in recovering our rhythm. Having not touched a ball for so long, when you go back out on the pitch you’ve lost your touch a bit, but now we just can’t wait to start playing games,” Marcelo added.

Bundesliga Set The Benchmark For The Return

It is notable that Bundesliga became the first league across Europe’s top five leagues to resume their campaign after the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic for two months. Bundesliga resumed with using draconian hygiene guidelines, regular testing of players and insisting on games in near-empty stadiums. Hugging, embracing and handshakes were also banned.

The Premier League is also set to return from June 17. The top-flight clubs on Thursday agreed to restart the 2019/20 season on June 17, provided that all safety requirements are in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
