Lega Serie A are still awaiting clarification on a number of issues relating to the resumption of the 2019/20 season from both the Italian government and the Italian football federation (FIGC) according to a report in today’s print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Lega Serie A council voted unanimously in favour of resuming the campaign a few days ago and all 20 Serie A clubs also voted unanimously in favour yesterday.

Lega Serie A wish to find out what will happen if another player is to test positive, will it mean the whole team must go into quarantine and then if so what would happen to the season.

They also wish to know what will happen if lockdown measures are extended in parts of the country and what security measures will be implemented during travelling between cities.

Another of the big concerns that remains relates to the issue of contracts and loan deals which are due to expire on June 30. World football’s governing body FIFA have expressed a desire to see any agreements extended until the season is over and Lega Serie A are seeking clarity from FIGC on the matter.

Moreover, they wish to get clarity on the issue of player salaries with the salaries of players likely to be cut in some way to help the clubs mitigate the financial damage caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
