Valencia asks UEFA to intervene after Gasperini admits to COVID-symptoms before their match

John Solano

Spanish outlet Marca has reported that La Liga side Valencia has requested for UEFA to intervene after Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini admitted he was displaying Coronavirus symptoms ahead of their Champions League clash on 10 March.

Gasperini shockingly admitted that he was displaying symptoms of the deadly virus but never spoke up because “he had so many things to do”. The Spanish side has also requested that Italian health officials intervene after they were unnecessarily exposed to COVID-19.

It remains to be seen if any punishment will arise from Gasperini’s irresponsible behavior, but many are calling on UEFA to ban Atalanta from European play.
