Italian Health Experts So No To Season Resuming

The Italian National Institute of Health (ISS) says it ‘wouldn’t be in favour’ of the season resuming.

The FIGC, Serie A and sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora are all in agreement over completing the 2019-20 campaign as soon as it is safe enough to do so.

It had been suggested that training could start again once the first phase of lockdown ends on May 3, with a view to possibly ending the season by August.

However, the ISS, the leading technical-scientific body of the Italian health service, believes 2019-20 should be written off.
