The President of the Italian Assocalciatori Damiano Tommasi says to ANSA, “UEFA has to consider moving the European football championship, giving time to the championships: the Coronavirus problem is not only Italian. In Serie A it was established that games should be held behind closed doors: among the players, some agree to go ahead and those who are worried. Now we will take all precautions, but the players on the field also risk: and in the event of a contagion, the quarantine rules also apply to professionals. “
The whole Serie A season had its games postponed within a week, and still not clear as well whether the Coppa Italia semi-finals can be completed.
Clubs have their precautions as well respectively testing their players and staff regularly following guidelines that prevent the spread of the virus. A simple handshake before and after the matches and drinking from the same bottle they’ve used isn’t allowed. Also, media disinfecting the microphones between interviews applies to safety measures.
