Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte could decide to suspend Serie A next week, according to a report from today’s print edition of the Rome based newspaper La Repubblica.
The report details how several regions in Italy have allowed clubs to reopen their sports centers and allow players to attend individual training sessions, following all the required safety protocols. These regions are Lazio, Campania, Emilia-Romagna and Sardinia.
However, with thousands dead due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Italian government could decide that restarting the league poses too many risks.
Two top European leagues have already decided to call off the season, the report continues, with both the French Ligue 1 and the Dutch Eredivisie deciding to end early.
Serie A clubs are hoping to restart the season and follow the English Premier League and the German Bundesliga, who both are set to finish the remaining games. Conte’s announcement could come on Wednesday, meaning next week is a decisive one in regard to this season.
