Genoa sporting director Daniele Faggiano said the Grifone will ask to postpone the match against Torino, after 14 positive tests for coronavirus in three days.
The Rossoblu confirmed there are 14 members of the matchday group – which includes members of staff – testing positive for coronavirus.
The news came after the 6-0 defeat to Napoli at the San Paolo and Genoa’s game against Torino this weekend is in serious doubt.
The FIGC protocol doesn’t provide a minimum number of players infected to automatically postpone the Serie A match, but with over one third of their members out with COVID-19, Genoa are not expected to host the Granata.
However, Torino must accept the request to push the game for a later date.
“Now I understand the collapse in the second half [against Napoli],” Faggiano told Il Secolo XIX.
“Now, let’s see, I think we will ask for the postponement. We can’t train.”
