TURIN – The Juventus-Inter big match will be played behind closed doors due to the emergency for the coronavirus. "If there are no new measures that go beyond the Government's CPM, Juve-Inter will be played behind closed doors as required by that decree." These are the words of the prefect of Turin Claudio Palomba reported by Corriere dello Sport at the end of a meeting with some colleagues, the presidents of the provinces and the region, and of the capitals.
Juventus-Inter behind closed doors for the coronavirus, Marotta: "The protection of citizens must be safeguarded".
The decision was commented by Beppe Marotta , Inter and former Juventus manager, on Sky Sport's microphones on the sidelines of the Europa League game against Ludogorets.
“Juventus-Inter behind closed doors? Surely, it is a surreal atmosphere, the public is a fundamental component of a football game, without the public, practically, it diminishes its value and emotion. Beyond this, there is a decree law of the President of the Council of Ministers which is very clear.
So, I would say that this decree is valid until Sunday at midnight and, consequently, playing behind closed doors is, unfortunately, a forced situation but, joining what Andrea Agnelli has already said, I say that the protection of citizens goes absolutely safeguarded. So we grudgingly accept these decisions.
Samir Handanovic? It is heading for complete recovery. Let's say that it will be available very soon. Then, it's always up to the coach to choose the eleven that go out on the pitch. However, the positive note of the day, is that the radiographic response has practically ascertained that the fracture has healed and that, therefore, it can rejoin the group very soon ".
