Lega Serie A President Lorenzo Casini feels that the wait to schedule the postponed matches in the competition from January including Inter’s away clash to Bologna has been too long.
Speaking to the league’s official website after the new dates for the matches were officially announced, as reported by FCInterNews, Casini gave the view that more must be done to play matches closer to their scheduled dates in these circumstances.
Inter had been scheduled to face Bologna on January 6, but a high number of COVID cases in the Rossoblu’s squad caused the match to have to be cancelled.
This was the case with three other matches from the same round of fixtures, while Salernitana’s match away to Udinese in December was postponed for similar reasons.
Now, all the postponed matches have scheduled dates, but this is only after months in which it has been unclear how Inter and the other teams involved would ultimately sit in the table, with these matches having title, top four, and relegation implications potentially.
Casini focused on this, stating that “We’ve scheduled the recovery dates for five matches postponed between the end of December and the beginning of January due to the pandemic.”
“I thank all the members of the League Council for their work, which now allows fans and clubs to have a clear picture of their sporting commitments until the end of the season,” he went on.
“In the future it will be better not to wait months to establish the dates of the matches that have to be played,” the President was clear.
