In Ligue 1 the ball should roll again from mid-June. As the league association LFP announced on Friday evening, this desired date is currently firmly in sight. The prerequisite for this, however, is that the authorities ease the current national restrictions somewhat in the coming days.
According to this, the players should return to their clubs after the end of the lockdown on May 11 and be completely medically checked. French football has been suspended since March 8, and the teams still have ten or eleven games to play.
The South Korean Hyun-Jun Suk, who plays for the French second division club ES Troyes, was the first professional footballer in France to test positive for the corona virus in March.
