Lionel Messi says he is comfortable with footballers returning to play again as La Liga prepares to restart the season in Spain next month. La Liga president Javier Tebas has circled June 12 as the ideal date for matches to resume. Barcelona sit top of the table, two points ahead of Real Madrid. Players in Spain have started working individually at training grounds as part of a strict and staggered programme, with five players already put into quarantine after testing positive for coronavirus.
"The risk of contagion is everywhere," Messi said in an interview with Mundo Deportivo, published on Friday.
"When you leave the house the risk is already there, so I think you can't think about it too much because otherwise you'll not want to go out anywhere.
