La Liga clubs will return to training this week after being granted government clearance to resume scheduled activities, as the country aims for a June return to action.

Spain's Ministry of Health has given the green light to go ahead with plans to allow teams and their players to train along, with strict medical guidance in place.

The Return to training protocol, which was drawn up with the assistance of medical experts and former professional players, will mean both Primera and Segunda Division sides can resume as they set the target of being ready for matches behind closed doors next month.

Players will begin by training alone and group activities will be integrated across four weeks. Should the government remain pleased with the progress, we may see league football in June.

LFP president Javier Tebas said: "This crisis has had a profound impact on all of us. The return of football is a sign that society is progressing towards the new normal. It will also bring back an element of life that people in Spain and around the world know and love.

"People’s health is paramount, so we have a comprehensive protocol to safeguard the health of everyone involved as we work to restart LaLiga. Circumstances are unprecedented, but we hope to start playing again in June and finish our 19/20 season this summer.”

In Germany the Bundesliga are attempting to ease players back into regular training routines, while another meeting is scheduled in England at the end of the week to discuss the fate of the Premier League.
