Mexico’s current situation with the coronavirus has struck an important individual in the Liga MX, none other than the president of the league, Enrique Bonilla.
Friday night an official statement was made by the Liga MX that Enrique Bonilla tested positive for the global virus that is affected many that has kept Bonilla in isolation and in quartine. It was noted that Bonilla had taken a recent visit to Spain due to the handling of the FIFA officials as part of his job and when he returned he was mandated to take a test although no symptoms were felt within himself.
Bonilla becomes the second case in the Liga MX as the president of Atletico San Luis, Alberto Marrero, made a statement on Tuesday that he as well tested positive for the virus. The league has been on postponement since March 15 and the country of Mexico according to the World Health Organization has 118 cases of the coronavirus as of Friday night that has been reported while there are an estimate of 243,073 case world wide.
Currently, the Liga MX has not declared a suitable timeline on when the Liga MX could restart once again due to the coronavirus slowly making an impact in Mexico. But with the latest news that the own president has been affected, we could see the Liga MX be pushed way back an extended time just how the MLS recently pushed their season another 30 days. Due to the heavy link between both leagues in recent years, the Liga MX could start-up if possible until May 10.
With this news generated a lot of mixed emotions across the league the majority of the club teams in the Liga MX were not shy of showing their president a huge number of support. Let us hope that the situation does not affect Bonilla and his family just like many other cases across the globe.
