CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores

Soccer's post-coronavirus transfer market could spell tough times for South American clubs

Julien Laurens agrees with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge that transfer fees and players' wages will inevitably go down.
Steve Nicol struggles to pick who's better between Brazil's Philippe Coutinho and Colombia's James Rodriguez.

Watching the ball rolling in the Bundesliga as football in Germany resumed amid the coronavirus pandemic will no doubt further increase the impatience in South America to get football restarted.

Last week CONMEBOL, the continent's federation, held a video conference meeting to discuss a possible timescale for resuming its club competitions, the Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana -- respectively, equivalents of the Champions and Europa Leagues.

How will CONMEBOL fit Copa Libertadores, World Cup qualifying and Copa America into football's coronavirus-hit calendar?

Gab Marcotti believes the Premier League should not continue if a deal with broadcasters can be arranged.

Europe aims to finish its Champions League by the end of August. South America has more time to play with; its season follows the calendar year. Officials there are hopeful that continental club competitions, the Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana, can be brought to a conclusion by Dec. 31.

But all of this, almost certainly, will take place without the presence of fans inside stadiums. Argentina's Minister for Sport and Tourism Matias Lammens is a former first-division club president,...

Tevez wage cut comments met with anger, does not account for struggles of many South American players

Craig Burley says the players have become scapegoats for the financial problems caused by the pandemic.
Steve Nicol believes politicians pushing for wage cuts are shifting the blame from their struggles.

"A footballer can live for six months or a year without getting paid," said Boca Juniors forward Carlos Tevez last week -- generating an angry reaction from many other Argentine players.

Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez dismissed Tevez's statement as "a lie." Veteran midfielder Nestor Ortigoza of Rosario Central called on Tevez "not to mess with the wallets of other people."

Tevez, of course, even at 36 years old, is on a far better contract than most, and earned plenty of money during his years...

CONMEBOL offers financial help to top South American clubs

Clubs playing in the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana have been offered an advance of up to 60% of their prize money so they can stay solvent during the coronavirus crisis, the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) said on Thursday.

A total of 76 clubs are still active in the two competitions, which are South America's equivalent of the Champions League and Europa League.

All receive money for qualifying and the sum increases the further they progress.

Flamengo boss Jorge Jesus says he has positive coronavirus test

Flamengo coach Jorge Jesus has tested positive for coronavirus and is under quarantine in Rio de Janeiro while doctors perform a second confirmatory test, he and his club said on Monday.

"It's true that my test came up positive and it's also true that I feel normal," the Portuguese coach said on Instagram. "I feel exactly the same today as I felt a month, a year, two, three years ago. I have no symptoms but the test was positive."

"I am going to stay under quarantine. I think that in a week or...
