Ceferin told Italian newspaper La Repubblica leagues across Europe could “start again in mid-May, in mid-June or at the end of June”, adding: “Then, if we don’t succeed, the season is probably lost.”

The Slovenian said that if it took until August to complete the fixtures then the start of the 2020-21 campaign could be pushed back into the autumn.

But any long delay would require agreement about extending the contracts of players whose current deals are due to end on June 30, and about how the transfer window would work.

Ceferin said: “It would have to work with respect to the players and the signing periods.

“We will see what the best solutions for the different leagues and clubs are.

“It’s difficult to imagine all the games being played behind closed doors.
