Barcelona wing-back Sergi Roberto: We'll need mini preseason

Barcelona wing-back Sergi Roberto says the players will need a mini preseason before the LaLiga resumes.

Competitions across Europe have been suspended since mid-March and the action won't resume in Spain until the government say it's safe to do so.

"I hope there's a pre-season when LaLiga [Santander] returns because training right now is different," Sergi Roberto said.

"I hope that, when the league returns, we can get in shape in order to perform at our best.

"We have a weekly training plan [at home] and they're also sending me a daily plan.

"With some friends from Reus, we're also doing video calls and training as a group, which makes it more enjoyable.

"There are people that are training more now they're at home."
