Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte wants ‘more guarantees before resumption of Serie A

Hits: 0

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Saturday said he needs “ more guarantees ” before the green light can finally be given for the resumption of Serie A after a two – month lockdown due to the coronavirus .

Clubs have already suggested June 13 as a date for the championship to restart while group training will get underway on Monday .

However , there are splits over how to proceed.

“Before starting the season , we need a few more guarantees and, speaking to Minister for Sport Vincenzo Spadafora, we don’ t have those at this moment , ” Conte told a televised news conference .

“ I hope they can be achieved as soon as possible . ”

Many clubs consider that the health protocol , painstakingly drawn up by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) , following recommendations of the government ’ s Technical and Scientific Committee, is impossible to enforce .

Two points are proving particularly problematic .

The first concerns the logistical difficulties for clubs to try and organise a two – week group training period from Monday .

Players would theoretically have to train together, then eat and sleep at the training centre or a hotel entirely available to the team to avoid any risk of contagion .

Many clubs do not have these facilities .
The second concerns the government insistence on quarantine for the entire team and staff, in the event of a positive test .

Italian clubs favour the German model, where only the infected person is quarantined .
