Spain has been on lockdown since March 13, after the coronavirus pandemic hit the country really bad.

However, with things beginning to look better, La Liga plan to return to action in early June.

La Liga have officially confirmed that teams will get back to training this week.

“La Liga clubs return to training this week following the approval by the Ministry of Health of the return to sports training,” their statement reads.

“In accordance with the Return to Training Protocol that La Liga has developed with medical experts, individual training of professional players from LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank (Spain’s second tier) is starting, once clubs have carried out medical tests.”

The Spanish Ministry of Health have sanctioned thorough COVID-19 tests among players from the first and second divisions as all 42 clubs, from La Liga and Segunda Division, will have to conduct these medical check-ups.

Meanwhile, the Premier League is also looking to resume the league in June and end by July, as the league will be played behind closed doors.
