  • UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin gestures during a press conference following a meeting of the executive committee at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon Switzerland

"Nobody knows when this pandemic will end", he said.

Ceferin says seasons could be finished behind closed doors.

Those options are to restart "mid-May, in June or at the end of June", though if no football has been possible by the time July arrives, the man from UEFA says "the season will probably be lost"...

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that there were a number of options for concluding the season, which has been brought to a halt around Europe by the coronavirus pandemic. There is also the possibility of ending this season at the start of the next, which would then be postponed, starting a little later.

"He added: "[We could] start again in mid-May, in mid-June or at the end of June.

We await to see the results of the meeting but surely we'll see an end to this June deadline.

Reportedly , though, Zoom does not mention in its privacy policy that makes it clear this type of data sharing is happening. The data also includes a unique advertiser tag, connected to a user's device, that companies use to target advertisements.

The resumption date put forth by leagues - the Premier League has now pencilled in April 30 - appears far-fetched, given the alarming spread of Covid-19 and the increasing number of fatalities across Europe and elsewhere, so Uefa has been holding talks with all parties.

"If there are no other alternatives, it would still be better to conclude the leagues (with games behind closed doors)".

The president of the football federation also say there would have to be changes made to the worldwide calendar and said that it's "difficult to imagine games without fans" but he did leave the door open to that possibility.

"It's hard for me to imagine all the matches behind closed doors, but we still don't know whether we'll resume, with or without spectators".

"In this dramatic moment, the most important thing is health, and to get out of this crisis".

"European football is strongly united".
