Leganes coach Javier Aguirre said Thursday that Spain’s La Liga will resume on June 20 and end on July 26 despite league bosses refusing to confirm his claim.
“Matches will be played Saturday-Sunday and Wednesday-Thursday, 11 rounds.
“La Liga has just informed me officially and I am very happy about that because we have now scheduled the training sessions. We start tomorrow (Friday) because thankfully we passed the tests.”
Players had already started returning to undergo coronavirus tests as teams plan to return to restricted training.
The first of a four-phase de-escalation programme announced by the Spanish government last week allows players to initially train alone, with a maximum of six players permitted on the pitch.
In the fourth and final phase, in early June, the government has said outside events can go ahead when attended by fewer than 400 people.
La Liga is proposing to complete its season behind closed doors.
