Raiola: 'Balotelli talking to various clubs'

‘Mario Balotelli is not finished and football needs him,” assures agent Mino Raiola. ‘We are talking to various clubs, including in Italy.’

The forward turned 30 this month and is out of contract, as his deal with Brescia would be terminated once the club was relegated.

He hadn’t played for the Rondinelle since February, as following the lockdown and restart, Balotelli never resumed training with the rest of the team.

Could COVID postpone Serie A start?

There are genuine concerns the 2020-21 Serie A season could be delayed after numerous clubs found players and staff positive for COVID-19.

The campaign is due to kick off on September 19, so pre-season training has either already begun or is ramping up over the next few days.

This means, as per protocol, that all players and staff are receiving blanket blood and swab tests to identify the presence of the Coronavirus.

Rocchi: 'Juve-Roma taught me a lot'

Gianluca Rocchi said he was ‘sceptical about VAR’ before agreeing ‘it’s an excellent tool’, revealed Juventus-Roma from 2014 ‘taught him a lot’ and admitted it was ‘more difficult’ after the lockdown.

Rocchi has decided to retire from his refereeing duties after having overseen 529 games at the highest level and his last match between Juventus and Roma in 2019-20 was a fitting farewell for the veteran.

Official: Delneri new Brescia coach

Brescia have officially named Luigi Delneri as their new coach, after he had originally agreed to be their technical director.

It means the contract with current coach Diego Lopez is terminated by mutual consent following relegation to Serie B.

Former Chievo, Sampdoria and Juventus boss Delneri had been approached a few weeks ago to become a new technical director at Brescia.

That would’ve given him power over uniting the senior squad with the youth academy, getting the various levels of the club to work together with a focus on training regime.
