The Bundesliga will restart its season this month as they will become the first major soccer league in Europe to return to action.

The earliest possible return date is May 15, with a May 22 start date also mooted.

"The eyes of Europe and all of the world will be on us," Germany and Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer wrote in an op-ed in German broadsheet FAZ on Wednesday. The goalkeeper highlighted the responsibility on German football's shoulders and said they acted as role-models for society. Bayern lead the Bundesliga by four points as it stands.
