La Liga Chief Javier Tebas has criticized Italian clubs who were against the resumption of the League claiming that they were just using health concerns as an excuse to prevent the season from being completed.
“I was very worried when a group of clubs publicly exposed themselves against the resumption in Italy,” he said in a press conference, according to Corriere dello Sport. “For me, they had an interest in not recovering and they used the health situation to say we shouldn’t play
“Fortunately, Serie A resumed, and I hope it will succeed and reach the end.”
Javier Tebas is unconcerned by the lack of an alternative plan and assures that an immediate action will be taken should the need arise.
“I don’t think there will be a new spike in the virus that will force another lockdown,” he said. “As soon as we know that we can’t play anymore, we will make a plan. It’s in the interest of sport.
“Otherwise, some may reason based on the result they have now. We didn’t waste a minute thinking about what would happen La Liga couldn’t finish the season, for cup qualifications, relegations and promotions.
“Some clubs have tried to talk about it, but now is not the time.”
