ROME – Absurd in Italy, the Minister of Sport Spadafora has asked for the suspension of the championship but League A, despite the record peak of 113 coronavirus victims today, has decided to play anyway. Juventus-Inter also played, a game between two teams from the regions most affected by the coronavirus. Minister Spadafora took the hit but bitterly criticized the Lega A decision and said he was ready to take drastic measures to protect the health of citizens and athletes.
Spadafora accuses the League A: "They were irresponsible on the coronavirus".
The statements made by the sports minister Spadafora during the 90th minute are reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Today's games are playing out for an irresponsible gesture by the Serie A League and its president Dal Pino. It is true that the government decree provides for closed doors, ours was only an invitation to stop.
But none of them take responsibility, because there are interests. The world of football, and in particular Serie A, feels immune to contagion, as if it should go on at any cost. I know very well that the game is a great opportunity for the fans, but the situation here is changing hour after hour.
I have been the subject of violent messages and insults, but what matters to me is public health. The League does not assume its responsibilities, Dal Pino always refers decisions to others.
This management, considered by many to be unsatisfactory and also by me, seems to me to be unaware of the seriousness of the situation. Are you waiting for the first cases of contagion in A too? What still needs to happen in the country? ".
