ROME – “ Let's stop the championship, stop football! First of all health … ". This is the appeal just published on Twitter by Damiamo Tommasi, former footballer of the Italian national team and president of the footballers association. Tommasi did not limit himself to writing this but he also tagged interested parties: Serie A, Serie B, Serie C, Fifa, Uefa, the football association and the FIGC .
Coronavirus, Gravina: "Stop the championship in the event of a player's infection? We cannot rule out any hypothesis".
A few hours before the closure of Lombardy, the president of the FIGC Gabriele Gravina had spoken on the subject. His statements to Rai microphones are reported by Ansa.
“Stop football in Italy if only one of the Serie A players is infected? We have to be realistic, there is also the possibility, the real risk that something like this exists.
In the surrounding areas, we will take all the necessary measures to guarantee the protection of our athletes first and then understand what can be done and what impact it can have on sports competition. We cannot exclude anything nor can we venture hypotheses that we still cannot foresee today ".
