Ferrero: 'Season should end here'

Sampdoria owner Massimo Ferrero says that for him ‘the season ends here” amid reports of strong divisions amongst the 20 Serie A teams as to whether the current campaign should continue.

Serie A has been suspended for over two weeks in light of the Coronavirus.

Italy has been the most affected country in Europe, with the death toll now standing at nearly 7,000 people.

Samp patron Massimo Ferrero believes that this season should be annulled and that 2020-21 should have a 22-team league.

“Next year’s Serie A should be the same as this year, for me, the season ends here,” Ferrero told Radio Radio.

“Benevento has 69 points in Serie B, what do they say? They can’t stay around and watch.

“The Scudetto? I know that [Claudio] Lotito will kill me for saying this, but is life, for me the season finishes here, in these positions.

“This is the direction to go.

“We can create an hypothesis, we can give ourselves a month of preparation, from April 4 to May 4, we play the 12 games. We get to August, what happens to the following league season?

“Let’s start talking about next season, not this one.”

There are reports of two, divisive camps amongst the 20 Serie A clubs, with some, led by Lazio owner Lotito, wanting the current season to finish. Lazio are currently chasing for the Scudetto.

Other sides want the season to be declared null and void, and start again with 22 sides in August, according to La Repubblica.
