The Real Madrid defender was critical of the federation’s decision to not postpone matches in the top two tiers of Spanish soccer.

Dani Carvajal has responded with frustration after the Spanish federation’s (RFEF) decision to suspend just non-professional leagues in the aftermath of the coronavirus outbreak.

The RFEF announced on Wednesday that football and futsal competitions besides the very best two flights of professional soccer could be suspended for at least two weeks.

Because of this, La Liga and the Segunda Division would be the only two leagues busy across Spanish soccer.

The Spanish footballers’ marriage has called for matches to be suspended for the next two weeks, after a similar appeal from the Italian players marriage.

La Liga is reportedly reluctant to stop play unless there’s a direct order from the Spanish authorities.

And that decision has left Carvajal frustrated given the dangers of playing despite the continuing matter.

“Are the players, coaching staff and supporters of the second and first branch squads immune?” Carvajal wrote on his Instagram narrative, although the post has since apparently been deleted.

A variety of games between Spanish groups have already been affected by the current outbreak.

Valencia’s Champions League reduction to Atalanta was played at Mestalla with no fans in attendance, while many Europa League games also have been impacted.

Sevilla’s match against Roma has been called off following the Giallorossi were not able to land in Spain because of coronavirus precautions, whilst Inter’s meeting with Getafe has also been postponed.

Elsewhere in the Europa League, Wolves have observed a petition to push back their trip Olympiacos in Greece rejected by UEFA, while Manchester United are scheduled to face LASK in Raiffeisen Arena behind closed doors in Austria.

Real Madrid currently sit second in La Liga, two points behind Barcelona and nine points before third-place Sevilla.

Next up for Carvajal and co. is a game against Eibar on Friday before the Champions League last-16 second-leg tie with Manchester City.

Man City now maintains a 2-1 lead on the side, with goals from Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne cancelling out Isco’s end in the first leg.

Carvajal has featured in 22 league games this year, supplying one goal and five assists, while also appearing in six Champions League games.
