The return project in Madrid “is non-existent” now

first_imgThe coaching staff still wants to rush all the possibilities, develop various scenarios in which, as the employers want in most of the world’s leagues, the championships can be finished even if it is in the month of August. Zidane elaborated a series of scenarios, at the beginning of the crisis for that return to work.

And that regarding the domestic championship. When it comes to European competitions, it is even more negative for a return or to end the season. It would be logical to think that, as China has done, countries safeguard their borders by quarantining anyone who wants to enter the country in a hotel until they find that it is negative in the virus to prevent a new outbreak. “The abatement is total,” concludes this source to AS to describe the situation. And Zidane is already thinking about the next exercise …last_img read more
