ROME – Reverse of the Minister of Sport Spadafora .
At first he had declared that the clubs should have already thought about the next season since this championship would not start again …
A few days later, he declared the exact opposite, saying he was ready for anything in order to restart the championship safely.
Spadafora has made the following statements to corriere.it.
“ The majority of Italians do not welcome the resumption of the championship , but I don't mind polls at the moment.
Football is an important world in the country , I know it well unlike those who want to pass on a different message.
Economic interests are legitimate, but when you go on other types of attacks, pressure and exploitation, this attitude is not good for anyone.
It would be surreal for a sports minister to demonize football.
I hope to leave again, but the government will decide .
Team training will resume from 18 May.
On the championship we will rely on scientific elements, which are not available today.
A realistic forecast can be made in mid-May.
There is no opposition of mine, but the will to evaluate the restart only if the health of the people within the team group is safeguarded.
Then I claim equal dignity with other sports and grassroots sports.
I protect the restart so much that I have convened the first meeting with Figc and Leghe to find a solution.
Starting again to play poses a series of issues related to transport, hotels, hundreds of people who move.
Whose responsibility is it? The protocol will have to define this too, in the week we will have a clarification.
I will do everything to start again.
If the government is forced, I hope not, to establish that there are no conditions, my effort will be twofold: to limit the economic damage to the clubs and to support the whole world of sport .
Between ordinary and extraordinary resources, we will invest about 1 billion for the sector as a whole ".
