Ever Banega, other Sevilla players apologise for breaking lockdown rules

- Ever Banega and some of his teammates have apologised to the league for breaching coronavirus lockdown rules to organise a party with their WAGS

- The move could jeopardise the return of La Liga which is scheduled for June 8

- About 12 people clustered around a table to take picture which was against the laws stipulated by La Liga

Ever Banega and a few other Sevilla stars have apologised for breaking the coronavirus lockdown rules to have a party with their WAGS.

The 31-year-old Argentine's wife Valeria Juan shared the pictures that landed them in trouble on social media.

No fewer than 12 people were counted sitting around the table as against the ten proposed by La Liga organisers as they plan to resume the 2019-20 season.

The former Arsenal target as however taken responsibility for his action after admitting his error as reported by SunSport.

He said: "I want to say sorry for what happened yesterday. “It was a get-together with family and team-mates. But unwittingly we made a mistake.

"I want to apologise to our club, our supporters and society in general. “It won’t happen again, we just want to play again as soon as possible.”

Also showing remorse for the same reason was Dutchman Luuk de Jong who added: “I want to apologise to everyone who felt offended by what happened yesterday.

"It won’t be repeated. We want the league to restart. We just want to start playing again.”

The duo of Franco Vasquez and Lucas Ocampos who are on the radar of Liverpool and Real Madrid this summer also followed in the steps of their teammates.

Reports claim they held their party the same day Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez announced La Liga could finally return on June 8.

While reacting to the negligence from the part of the players, the Spanish League organisers labeled the act “inadmissible and incomprehensible” adding that it could put the return of the competition at risk.

President Javier Tebas later added: “The players have repented and put out statements saying sorry. “We are an example to society and have to be very careful.

I call on all players not to engage in this type of behaviour. Posting the photo is not the issue. We’re putting the football industry at risk.

Someone may be carrying the virus and show no symptoms and we have to be very careful and responsible with the things we do.

The positive thing is that they have said sorry and we urge players to continue being cautious. We cannot let our guard down, LaLiga, the clubs or the players.”

The first match to be played in the LaLiga restart is expected to be the Seville derby - Sevilla against Real Betis - on June 11 or 12.

Legit.ng earlier reported that one Bournemouth player tested positive for deadly coronavirus after the club carried out the second round of testing ahead of Premier League return.

Although, they did not disclose the identity of the said player, they have however assured that he will be isolated for seven days before undergoing another test.

SunSport reports that Eddie Howe had all his players on ground for training for the first time this week as preparation for 'Project Restart' continues.
