However, fortunately we are an industry in which a wide variety of activities can occur. Tejas said that we have been able to do this in coordination with the Higher Sports Council and the Ministry of Health.
“But we are obviously concerned about the salary cap but I believe these concerns should be mitigated as we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. In the other 2-4 months we should see vaccines because companies are manufacturing millions of vaccines, ”he said.

“Yes, we have invested in all these safeguards but they are not the amount that significantly affects the balance sheet, economic accounts of LaLiga or its clubs. It is necessary to buy tests, change the infrastructure, advise, change personnel, etc., said Tables.

“And thanks to this economic investment, the work of LaLiga and its clubs, the commitment and efforts of all, professional football is back in such a delicate time,” Tebus concluded.
