La Liga games will no longer take place on Mondays, says the Spanish FA’s president Luis Rubiales.

Alaves supporters held a mock funeral during their La Liga win over Levante in protest at the match being switched to Monday night for live TV coverage.

Alaves fans also protested about fixture changes during their game against Athletic Bilbao, held on a Monday in December.

“Business is important, but fans more so,” Rubiales said on Twitter.
