Real Madrid Defender Ramos eager for football to return (Read details)

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos said Spain needs football to boost the economy and to distract fans as La Liga eyes a June return following the coronavirus outbreak.

La Liga has been postponed since March due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has wreaked havoc globally – killing more than 283,500 people and bringing sport to a standstill.

A mid-June resumption has been touted for the 2019-20 campaign in Spain, where Barca topped the table ahead of Madrid through 27 matches.

On Sunday, La Liga president Javier Tebas suggested June 12 as a possible date for the league to return, though he stressed that any resumption of play would require the approval of health authorities.

Ramos is raring to go, telling Movistar:

“Getting going needs time, the country needs football as an economic support and the people need it as a distraction.

“I’m dying to compete again, for La Liga Santander to be normal again, we have to be disciplined so that we can eliminate this virus.

“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.”
