Milan are the latest Serie A side to announce they will not return to training until it is safe enough to do so.
Italy is in a state of lockdown until April 3, but the outbreak of COVID-19 does not seem to be slowing down, judging by today’s terrible figures.
After Napoli and Lazio in recent days, now Milan have confirmed that they will not resume footballing activities until further notice.
“AC Milan announces that the return to training will be deferred to a date that will depend on the relevant authorities and medical advice,” an official statement reads.
“The health and safety of our players, staff and our community are the Club's greatest concern.
“AC Milan is open to collectively agree on the best solution for clubs, fans and all others impacted, and to discuss any proposals for the return to competition at an appropriate time, subject to the following overriding principles:
“1. The Club will only return to training and to playing football again on the basis of advice that is safe and appropriate to do so from the relevant authorities and medical experts.
“2. Any return to training and playing should be orderly and undertaken under the same conditions for all teams in the League.
“We stand united with the people of Italy. Together we will overcome this crisis, we will support and comfort each other and we will find the strength to move forward.
“There will be a time to play football again and it will play its part in the recovery of a great nation. “
