Spadafora: ‘Serie A protocol still valid’

Italy Minister for Sport Vincenzo Spadafora insisted the Serie A protocol is “still valid” and said local health authorities can “intervene in specific and motivated cases” after a meeting with FIGC President Gabriele Gravina today.

“As of today, the protocol is still valid and must be respected by everyone with the utmost rigor”, Spadafora said.

Spadafora met Gravina after Napoli failed to attend yesterday’s away clash against Juventus. The Partenopei didn’t travel to Turin last week-end following a statement of the local health authority (ASL) that had told the Partenopei to self-isolate after two of their players and a member of the staff tested positive for Covid. 

“We are aware that we’ll need to adapt our future choices according what will happen in the coming months,” Spadafora insisted.

“Public health is our priority, and we are ready to do our part if the scenario will change. As of today, the protocol is valid.

“The local health authority can intervene in specific and motivated cases.”

Asked on whether the Serie A is at risk of being cancelled or suspended, Spadafora promptly replied: “No, there is no such risk.”
