Italian FA to request postponement of Euro 2020 to complete Serie A season

ROME-On Sunday, Italian Football Federation (FIGC) president Gabriele Gravina told Sportsmediaset: ‘We will propose that UEFA postpone the European Championship.

‘We will try to get to the end of this championship (Serie A) because it is fairer and more correct after the many investments and sacrifices of our clubs.’

Seven Serie A players have now tested positive for coronavirus as the illness continues to spread throughout Italy‘s top flight.

Five Sampdoria players, as well as a player apiece from Juventus and Fiorentina have succumbed to the virus and must now spend time in quarantine.

Juve’s Daniele Rugani was the first Serie A player to test positive and since then Omar Colley, Albin Ekdal, Antonio La Gumina, Manolo Gabbiadini, Morten Thorsby and Dusan Vlahovic have also been affected.

The severity of the outbreak in Italy saw football suspended on March 11 by the Italian government and it appears unlikely that the game will resume in the foreseeable future.  Daily Mail
