translated from Spanish: Football could return in September to South America

Gonzalo Belloso, conmebol’s general secretary, said football is expected to be able to return to all South American countries during the month of September, so world cup qualifiers would do so in October or November. Speaking to Closs Continental of Argentina, which says Radio Cooperativa, Belloso stated that «we believe that in September it could be played again throughout South America. Maybe, in some places, before.» In the same vein, he added that «in some countries like Paraguay it seems that activity may return sooner, but we estimate that in the rest of the continent, September would be a more than likely date.» Therefore, the manager detailed that they held a virtual meeting with the physical preparers of different South American teams, concluding that «the estimated period of training before resuming the activity will be around six weeks.» Along with explaining that work is being carried out on a travel protocol in different countries when competition resumes, he estimated that the Libertadores and South American Cups would return in late September or October. Finally, Belloso felt that in the absence of major complications from the pandemic, world rankings could begin in October, or even November.
