German politicians have suggested that the Bundesliga could return as early as May 9.
The league was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak with nine matches still to play.
German politican Markus Soder told Bild: ‘The prerequisite is that there is a well thought-out concept.
‘What the DFL have presented shows that protective measures are in place.
‘I could imagine that we can go back to the state of games behind closed doors.
‘It is a tightrope walk. We now have to be careful not to overdo it or be frivolous.
‘Games with audience participation are completely unthinkable. Games behind closed doors are also a tightrope walk.
‘It is conceivable that we might be able to play a ghost round at the earliest from May 9th.
‘It is clear: a weekend with football is much more bearable than a weekend without football.’
Bayern Munich are four points clear of Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig a point behind Lucien Favre’s side in third
