Leagues are considering their return in the footsteps of Germany’s example following the resumption of the Bundesliga after a break while the country dealt with the spread of COVID-19.
The top German leagues are set to enter a third gameweek in the wake of the government easing lockdown rules related to professional sport.

Spain’s La Liga is now set to restart behind closed doors on the 8th of June, with the English Premier League hopefully doing the same shortly after.
As football in Europe gradually resumes, these are the best of the latest virus jokes and tweets:

No wonder Karius was the second best goalkeeper in the Bundesliga. They’re all ass.

Dominic Cummings travelled further in lockdown with coronavirus than Crewe Alexandra have ever gone for a competitive game in their 143-year history.

So let me explain our tactic : we are doing one injection of #covid19 once a week. We draw the player/membre of staff who get it like this we are sur that we never play again and avoid relegation 🤦🏾♂️#watfordfc https://t.co/FdfMF4vqoB

Bloody typical how many people are suddenly “huge" fans of German Football. Some of us have been watching the Bundeslider for years; and would have been watching Bayern Dortmund vs Burundia Mortenharket anyway. Leave it to the real fans, please.

Bundesliga clubs should play sounds of fans cheering on loud speakers to create atmosphere like Tottenham does in their new stadium. #Bundesliga

#DailyBriefing If a Bundesliga football club team member puts one foot out of place they are out of the picture – one left his quarantine hotel for a toothbrush and that was it. That is for a game of football. Here in pandemic central we have a free for all. We are a joke again. pic.twitter.com/MhHE1QpvN2
