Ferrero: 'Bubble? Let's not invent things'

Sampdoria patron Massimo Ferrero doesn’t want to talk about a Serie A ‘bubble’ and claimed stadiums ‘can remain open at 30 per cent’.

The many cases of coronavirus emerging in Italian football has caused new concern of another break, or possible retreats to keep the players safe and able to proceed safely.

The Blucerchiati were one of the hardest hit teams in the first wave of coronavirus and the President said he ‘respects’ COVID-19, but still believes ‘we have the means to overcome it’.

“I respect the coronavirus, which is a monster,” Ferrero said to The Breakfast Club on Radio Capital. “But we have the means to overcome it.

“We don’t die of coronavirus; we respect the disease, but we don’t emphasise.

“Scientists go on TV and everyone says something different. Yesterday, I did the swab test because there was a meeting, but it’s a very annoying thing.”

Serie A studies the different hypotheses in fear of another stop, and a ‘bubble’ has been mentioned in Italian media as a solution.

“Let’s not invent things that doesn’t exist. The stadiums can remain open at 30 per cent. Uncertainty kills people’s mind.

“In a while we will close the hospitals for the bodies and fill those for the head. I was forced to close the cinemas, now all these problems with football. Like this, they stop life.”
