Every club in Spain’s top two divisions held group training on Monday for the first time since play was halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.However, Rayo Vallecano’s players were given an individual programme to follow at home, the source added.In May, Rayo Vallecano joined a large number of Spanish clubs in introducing a temporary pay cut underwritten by the government, known as an ERTE, after the season was provisionally suspended.Coach Paco Jemez criticised the pay cut, however, arguing that it was not necessary as the club was in a healthy state financially.Jemez called for all non-playing staff to receive their full wages during the period.
