Serie A clubs, including Roma, protest government’s proposed medical protocols

Il Tempo (Austini) – No “ritiro” or group training will begin for Roma on Monday.

Roma and other Serie A clubs (Inter, Milan, Napoli, Cagliari, Verona, Atalanta, Sampdoria and Genoa) are rebelling against the medical protocols imposed by the government’s scientific committee. Why? There are too many doubts and complicated aspects surrounding the measures.

There is an increasing feeling that training under these measures without any certainty about the future of the league could be counterproductive.

It’s an ever-evolving situation that could change again, but right now we can say that group training won’t resume on 18th May. Though, individual training is likely to continue.

Fonseca and his colleagues are remotely guiding the Roma players, who are divided between different training pitches and hourly shifts. However, they continue to ask themselves: what is this for?

The lack of group training makes the proposed league restart date of 13th June even more uncertain. The main issue remains the same: is an entire team must go into quarantine if a player rests positive, then what’s the point in restarting?
