Irene Lozano, the president of Spain’s National Sports Council (CSD), insisted it was “impossible” to have fans back in stadiums when La Liga resumes this month.
The La Liga season will restart on June 11 and Miguel Angel Ramirez, the president of Segunda Division club Las Palmas, said supporters would be able to attend his side’s home matches beginning that weekend.
However, Lozano said it was impossible to have fans return so soon amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“It is impossible. The integrity of the competition must be respected,” she told Cadena SER, via AS, on Tuesday.
“There are many considerations in this regard, but the most essential is sports. Respect the integrity of the competition.
“Since La Liga is a national competition and we have all tried so very hard that the training sessions were matched, I’m a bit surprised that after the effort we have made to match what was out of step, now suddenly in the last 100 metres we come to unbalance.”
