La Liga Strike Over - Villarreal to take on Barcelona on Monday!

The Liga de Futbol Profesional (LFP) and Association of Spanish Footballers (AFE) have reached an agreement to call off the strike and resume the La Liga season for 2011-2012.  We do nto yet know what this means for the matches that were passed over last weekend, but the one thing that is clear is that the teams have to get going to be ready for the weekend's matches. 

The statement from the side of the players:

The committee of the AFE and LFP have reached an agreement that ensured, through various means, the salaries of footballers.  After the meeting today between the AFE and the LFP, the strike scheduled for Friday August 26, Saturday August 27, Sunday August 28 and Monday August 29 is off. Here at the AFE, we thank for their understanding and patience all those who have been affected. Finally, and most importantly, we want to thank all the non-Spanish and Spanish players who play in our championship. We want to convey how proud we are of them all and the unprecedented unity and solidarity they have shown at a time.

Villarreal will take on Barcelona at the Camp Nou in what should be a very difficult test.  Of course, taking a point in Catalunya would be a terrific result and could set the stage for a season to remember, now that the club has qualified for the Champions League group stages.
