Gravina confirms Scudetto winner

FIGC President Gabriele Gravina has confirmed that there will be a Scudetto winner this season, despite there being still no sign of a resumption.

Gravina has always maintained that the 2019-20 campaign will be completed, although the outbreak of coronavirus in Italy keeps an abandonment a very real possibility.

“There’s a plan, to which we’ve given absolute priority,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“We’d all be happy to finish the season on the pitch. We’re in contact with FIFA for contract extensions if we need to go beyond June 30.

“We have to find a solution and the ideal one would be to go until July 30. We must comply with regulations and what comes from the highest political and scientific offices.

“If we can’t play, we’d still like to preserve the value of the sporting competition that took place on the field.

“We’re talking about where the Scudetto would go, but it’s for the Federal Council to decide.

“We still have to reach a conclusion for next season’s line-up of teams, from the European competitions to promotions and relegations.”
