Udinese: 'Madness to start June 13'

Udinese director Pierpaolo Marino maintains ‘starting the Serie A games from June 13 would be absolute madness for players and clubs.’

They are allowed to begin group training from tomorrow, but there are still discussions over the medical protocol.

The Government insists if there is one positive COVID-19 case, the entire group has to go into a 15-day quarantine rather than just isolating the individual.

“If the date for starting the Serie A games from June 13 was confirmed, it would be absolute madness for players and clubs,” Udinese technical director Marino told Rai Radio 1.

“Our position is that we should only return to the field when the health and safety of players and staff can be guaranteed.”

Teams will resume training in small groups from Monday, but without contact, at least until the medical protocol can be agreed.
