[Serie A showdown talks over season resumption set for May 28] [Italian Footballers’ Association President Damiano] Tommasi wants a certain date? I am pleased to give him good news. Just a little while ago I called a meeting with [FIGC President Gabriele] Gravina, [Serie A President Paolo] Dal Pino and all the other members for May 28, at 3pm

I believe that we will be in good condition next Thursday to have all the data available, with respect to the evolution of the health emergency, in order to be able to decide if and when Serie A will restart. May 28 is the date by which we will make a decision

The format will be decided by the federations. I believe that the important thing is that if we start the championship again, we finish it. Closing everything as in France would have been the impulse choice. I reacted harshly, because deciding immediately on a resumption date of the championship, with full intensive therapies, was shameful. Now that the country is starting it is right that even football and the whole world of sport starts again. This idea that I could be against football I found annoying at the beginning, now it’s just funny

[Serie A closing in on June return date] We are working on two possible dates to begin Serie A games, on June 13 or 20. The protocol arrived for resuming the season and it is very similar to the one that was agreed for training. On Thursday, we’ll decide if and when to resume. This emergency has shown some critical issues in the world of football that we will face in a general reform that will happen before the end of the summer. Among those issues we include allowing women’s football players to become professional athletes
