La Liga is set to return soon, but like Bundesliga, it would be played behind closed doors, which might not please the fans and players. Artificial noises are never enough to fill the gaps of real fans, who trigger a festive environment in the stadium.
The World Cup Champion forward of France and Barcelona, Antoine Griezmann expressed his opinion to Barcelona basketball player Nikola Mirotic on Twitch about this.
Here are the excerpts:
Playing behind closed doors
It’s going to be very strange!
I saw they put photos [of fans in the stadiums] in Germany.
It’s very strange, you hear everything on the pitch.
On the La Liga schedule
We’ve got 11 games to go in LaLiga and then the Champions League, but they still don’t know how to do that.
In LaLiga, we’re playing more than one game per week.
My wife is annoyed because there won’t be any beach [holiday].
It’s the first time that I’ve had this much rest because between the World Cup, the Euros… I’ve never had so much time at home.
I’ve been able to play on the PlayStation [and] be with my children.
But I’ve needed the ball, to run… During the lockdown, I’ve been careful with what I eat and all that, but I haven’t done much running on a treadmill.
