Immobile asks the government for “more clarity” on the resumption of football

first_imgThe Italian Government approved last Sunday a decree that allows athletes who practice individual sports to train from May 4 while it prevents footballers from working in their sports centers until the 18th. In addition, it will be possible to train in the parks from May 4, although respecting at least one meter of safety distance.This Wednesday, the Italian sports minister, Vincenzo Spadafora, assured that if he were a president of a Serie A club he would start thinking about next season Because, he considered, the options to resume the competition “are less and less.” Series A was interrupted on March 9 on Matchday 26, with Juventus leading with a point advantage over Lazio, second, and nine over Inter Milan, third. “I agree with the thinking of the club and my teammates. It doesn’t seem right to me to be able to run in a public park and not in Formello, where we have a sports center with six fields that allow us to train individually“Immobile said in an interview on official Lazio television.” We are not making controversy, we just want more clarity. We want to understand why we cannot train in our sports center. We are waiting to return to do what we want. Football moves a lot of money, and there is little time left“he added. Ciro Immobile, Lazio striker and top scorer in the Italian Serie A, asked Wednesday for “more clarity” to the Government on whether and when it will be possible to resume the sports activity of the footballers, while considering it unfair to prevent training until at least May 18.last_img read more
