Lippi: 'Serie A has to resume'

Marcello Lippi finds the arguments over restarting the Serie A season to be ‘vomit-inducing,’ because football is not treated as a huge industry.

The medical protocol agreed by the FIGC and Government was rejected just 24 hours later by Serie A clubs and the Players’ Association, so it remains to be seen whether group training will indeed resume on Monday.

“The situation we’re experiencing now is vomit-inducing, it really does make me furious,” the World Cup winner told Radio Deejay.

“Every day we hear that we are all in this together, but then everyone does what they want, both on a scientific and political level. We are in 2020, we can send probes to Mars and we can’t find a vaccine for coronavirus?

“Why shouldn’t we allow football to resume? It’s not like two months ago when we were flattened by a tsunami, now the virus has lost strength and the hospitals are able to organise themselves.

“There’s so much demagoguery around football. It is a massive industry and must be treated as such.”
