#Sports: Laliga to use video analysis for contact tracing.

Published

on

La Liga will use a video analysis programme to help determine if a player is likely to have infected a teammate or opponent.

According to a draft protocol drawn up by the league, this will be put into use if the player tests positive for the coronavirus once the season re-starts. The protocol was sent out to clubs in Spain’s top two divisions on Monday and is an updated version of the document clubs received earlier this month. Teams in Spain’s top two divisions began training in groups of up to 10 players from Monday.

La Liga president Javier Tebas has said he hopes the season can resume from June 12. Tebas has said the league’s safety measures meant the chance of a player being infected during a game was “practically zero”. If a player tests positive after a match, they will be isolated while the facility they are staying in will be cleaned and disinfected, the protocol said. Anyone in the player’s personal circle who has recently been in contact with them will be examined.

 

Q Analysts will then use the league’s programme Mediacoach to see which other players the footballer came into contact with. The protocol added that any player who was in close contact with the infected player for more than five minutes would be tested. This is because studies suggest the risk of infection increases when someone is in contact with someone for over 15 minutes.

The protocol also states that:

– Players and officials will be tested 24 hours before each match and have their temperature taken when arriving at the stadium.

– Balls will be distributed around the perimeter of the pitch and will be constantly disinfected.

– Players will be ordered to disinfect their hands before and after the warm-up.

– All players and coaching staff must wear masks and gloves upon arrival at the stadium.

– There will be no pre-match handshakes.

– Managers will hold post-match news conferences via video link.

After the game PSG boss Thomas Tuchel said:

“He’s got a small injury to his adductor. He’ll be back after the break. I don’t think he can play for Brazil. The information that we have is that he’ll be back after the break.” Neymar is set to miss Ligue 1 games against Nantes and Rennes including their Champions League clash away to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig. However, the Brazil international is expected to be back for the clash against French rival Monaco on November 20.

Tuchel told RMC Sport about the Champions League game in midweek:

“It was necessary to take him off. “We now have to wait for a diagnosis. It was not serious pain, but he felt uncomfortabl, though I cannot be sure at this point.”

Neymar had tested positive for coronavirus before the start of the new season missing two games against Metz and Nice as well as being sent off against Marseille.
