Luis Rubiales ruled out the prospect of giving Barcelona La Liga title

Luis Rubiales, president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation, ruled out the prospect of giving Barcelona the La Liga title if the coronavirus pandemic causes the season to end abruptly.

Rubiales states that, it would be unfair to finish the season as it currently stands, adding that teams must play all their matches.

Spanish La Liga fixtures are currently on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic in Europe.

Barcelona are currently on top of the La Liga table with two points separating them from second-place Real Madrid.

“We have been working with UEFA for several days on the phone and by videoconference,” Spanish newspaper, Diario AS quoted Rubiales as saying.

“We have put forward some proposals that have been satisfactorily approved.

“We already know what the situations are for the European, local and Euro competitions.

“The competitions in Spain have to be finished before June 30 and all teams have to play all their matches.

“That’s what we discussed with the 55 member federations and with the Executive Committee. We have all voted favorably.”
