- Real Madrid are two points behind Barcelona in the league.
- Fede Valverde really wants to claim the title and dedicate it to those who suffered from the coronavirus.
- This season would go down into football's history, the Uruguayan claims.
Talking to ABC, Federico Valverde has said that Real Madrid's La Liga win would be a dedication to those who suffered from the novel coronavirus.
“It would be very nice to win this league, that whatever happens, would go into football's history. There are many people to dedicate this title to, the list of people is huge. So many people have suffered [from the disease]."
As fairly noted by Fede, this season is historic. Even at the times of the World Wars, football didn't have such lengthy breaks. 65 days divided the UEFA Europa League last-16 fixtures and the Bundesliga resumption last weekend. It's like a pre-season that was done ahead of time.
However, big football is coming back soon. The German top flight has already resumed while the La Liga restart is set on June 12. Real Madrid are currently second behind Barcelona but the gap is narrow – 2 points.
More than 277,000 people have caught COVID-19 in Spain, more than 27,000 people have died. Luckily, the number of those recovered is much higher – almost 200,000.
