The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) have recommended that all football clubs in Spain suspend training and prepare individual plans for their players to carry out at home.

The RFEF sent a letter to all clubs on Friday and later published a statement detailing their advice for all Spanish clubs as coronavirus continues to spread in the country. 

"Our priority is the protection of the footballers, the coaches, the referees and all club staff involved in the competitions and for that reason, we recommend that all clubs suspend collective training while there are no games being played," the RFEF said. 

They asked the clubs to "follow the instructions being given by the respective health authorities, especially in terms of isolation and restricting movement." 

Barcelona had already decided to stop all club-related activity, including first-team training. As things stand, upcoming games against Mallorca, Napoli and Leganes have all been suspended.
