“It’s A Crazy Decision To Plan To Resume Serie A” – Cellino

The Terrorist!



Brescia owner Massimo Cellino has hit out at plans to resume the Serie A season next month, insisting players will be far more susceptible to injuries after being rushed back onto the pitch.

Italy’s sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora on Thursday confirmed the top flight, which was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, can continue from June 20.

The Coppa Italia semi-final second legs and final will be held in the week leading up to that date, when it is intended league games will be held behind closed doors.

Cellino has been outspoken in his opposition to resuming football during a health crisis that has seen more than 231,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Italy and over 33,000 deaths.

He has now branded plans to resume 2019-20 as a “crazy decision”, telling the BBC on Thursday:

“It’s too much for the players.

“We stopped [training] for two months. It is dangerous to restart it playing three games a week. So, I’m worried about injuries and the hot weather, which is going to be terrible in Italy, more than Germany.”

However, Udinese and Nigeria defender William Troost-Ekong expressed his belief that the proposed restart had already provided a boost for players and staff across Italy.

The 26-year-old stated:

“It’s lifted everybody’s spirits, As long as we can do it in the right way without too many risks and setting the right example for the country, I think it’s a good thing to be doing.”
