La Liga say they will support any measures taken by Spanish clubs, including temporary redundancies (ERTE), as clubs attempt to minimise the financial effects of the coronavirus crisis. 

The league have told first and second division clubs that any decision they make in terms of cutting back costs, changing structures and making temporary cutbacks will be backed. 

SPORT revealed last week that Barcelona are currently looking at ways to save money. Clubs are looking at ERTEs and wage cuts as they fight against the money they are set to lose with no football. First team players across Spain's top-flight clubs could see their salaries drop. 

That does not mean the money won't be made up in the case that the game resumes and the season is eventually completed. 

As revealed in SPORT on Monday, La Liga is thinking that competition could restart some time in May and be finished by the end of June -- or later, in July, if UEFA and FIFA allow it. 

A meeting is planned on Tuesday between La Liga and the Players' Association (AFE). Analysis and debates on what comes next, especially in terms of ERTEs, will take place.
