Barcelona president Bartomeu: We don't want games behind closed doors

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu expects the season to resume before the end of June.

Bartomeu admits there remains a determination to complete the season amid the coronavirus crisis.

He told Sport: "The scenario we're working on now is to play games before June 30 and for competitions to finish in July or August. We don't have a problem with that. What we don't want is games behind closed doors or every 48 hours."

Bartomeu added: "They will have to force us. We want to play with fans. Euro 2020 and the Copa America have been suspended to make space in the summer."
