Bundesliga will not restart before 22 May, according to Daily Mail. The publication claims that the German government ordered all teams to complete a two-week quarantine to ensure any new cases of COVID-19. 

Reports earlier this week claimed that more than 1700 tests have been carried out in players and staff en route to the Bundesliga restart and 10 tests have been positive. 

Bundesliga wanted to restart their games from May 9, while there were expectations that chancellor Angela Merkel would allow to start it from May 15. 

However, Daily Mail claims that while football will resume this month, the government first requires all clubs to observe a two-week quarantine.

Ligue 1 and Eredivisie seasons have been concluded last week due to coronavirus crises, while Premier League, La Liga and Serie A discuss possibilities for resume.
