Tommasi: 'Season could end here'

Players chief Damiano Tommasi says there is a possibility “the season will end here” ahead of tomorrow’s conference call with Serie A.

The Italian Footballers’ Association (AIC) were supposed to talk over the issue of wages with Serie A on Monday, but Tommasi admits Vincenzo Spadafora’s plan to extend the lockdown for sporting events will also come up for discussion.

“There will be one more element on the table tomorrow, compared to previous weeks, because after the words of Minister Spadafora, there’s concern that the season will end here,” the former Roma midfielder told ANSA.

“It’s therefore necessary to tackle the problem of ending the season from a sporting point of view and a contractual one; in short, formally.

“As for cutting wages, we seek, if possible, a common solution. Juve moved forward, but what they did didn’t take us by surprise.

“We knew all about it and we don’t feel delegitimised. Among other things, Chiellini is our advisor.

“If there are no disputes between clubs and players, we’re not required to intervene. If they’ve found an agreement, that’s fine.”
