The statement from Spadafora drew criticism


Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said last Sunday that individual training could begin on May 4 and team training on May 18, just for sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora to mention that athletes in individual sports may start training from May 4 and people in team sports need to wait until May 18.

The statement from Spadafora drew criticism and on Saturday, Serie A club Sassuolo said they might allow their players to use their facilities from Monday.

Minister of Sports Vincenzo Spadafora has warned that ‘team training won’t begin before May 18,’ but his remarks have created uncertainty.

Initially, Spadafora dismissed the concept of adding team sports to individual ones, suggesting Serie A clubs would need to wait until May 18 before they might reopen their doors. This was amid a clear change of heart on Monday from the leader and therefore the government granting permission to sides to resume solo workouts.

He wrote tonight during a Facebook post, however: “I’ve seen some odd stuff making the rounds, but little has changed with reference to what I’ve always said about football: Team training won’t begin before May 18 and resuming the season are some things that haven’t really been addressed.

“Sorry for now, but I’d rather specialize in all the opposite sports and complexes (gyms, dance centers, swimming pools, etc.) that require to reopen as soon as possible! “Spadafora used the word ‘allenamenti delle squadre,’ which translates literally into ‘squad preparation,’ indicating that teams weren’t yet ready to practice in groups.

Others, on the opposite hand, interpreted his remarks as a nod against all ways of designing, throwing doubt on the plans for several Series A sides tomorrow.

The suspension of Series A has been administered since March 9, in line with the present lockdown steps taken by the Italian government to tackle the on-going coronavirus outbreak which has been introduced worldwide.
