On June 20, therefore, the A league (and maybe even Serie B, who knows the Series C) but football will start again earlier. The minister Spadafora hoped that the championship will be anticipated by Italian Cup, Lega and Figc will satisfy it: return of the semifinals (Napoli-Inter and Juventus-Milan) on June 13, final at the Olimpico on 17. It’s not just a matter of calendar but politics: the cup games belong to the Rai, visible to all, and this would be the compromise compared to the proposal (unacceptable for pay-TV, on which the umpteenth arm wrestling had opened) to transmit a part of the games (but the minister will return to office for the championship).
Exults No. 1 of the FIGC, Gabriele Gravina, always at the forefront of the recovery, on which he had bet everything and had also procured the attacks of the president of the CONI Malagò: “The restart of football represents a message of hope for the whole country,” he says triumphantly. The president of the League queues, Paolo Dal Pine tree: “We dealt with consistency, determination and spirit of service a period extraordinary, complex and full of obstacles and pressures, always working with a only thought: the good of football and the defense of its future “. The presidents of ball, who will now be able to cash in the money of the rights TV, the only real reason why the championship it must be finished at any cost.
To sing victory, however, perhaps it is still early. Also yesterday the technical-scientific committee reiterated that the players will not have preferential lanes, and in case of positivity the whole team will have to go in isolation for two weeks. “At the moment the CTS excludes that we can loosen the quarantine, in case a footballer should test positive, which we clearly do not hope for, “explained the minister. Not even a chance distant, since just on Tuesday a car appeared to have been found infection in the ranks of Bologna: the pad failed, the kick pulled a sigh of relief and the government’s yes has been collected, but the fear remains.
The wish of minister has the slightly sinister sound of bad omen. Under these conditions, only one infected will be enough to blow up the whole calendar, which must necessarily be at walking pace to end within August. “The FIGC assured us that if there was a need again suspend the championship already has plan B and plan C, “says Spadafora. These are the playoffs to end the season in case of smoothly, but nobody can rule out even a new stop, this time definitive, complete with freezing of the ranking. And at that point it would have been better never to leave. If all goes well, the A league will start again on June 20. That ends for real, however, is another game yet, which starts today.
