Spadafora: ‘No team training yet’

Sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora has warned that ‘team training will not resume before May 18’, but his comments have sparked confusion.

Spadafora initially rejected the idea of bringing team sports in line with individual ones, meaning Serie A clubs would have to wait until May 18 before they could reopen their doors.

Sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora has warned that ‘team training will not resume before May 18’, but his comments have sparked confusion.

Spadafora initially rejected the idea of bringing team sports in line with individual ones, meaning Serie A clubs would have to wait until May 18 before they could reopen their doors.

That was followed by an apparent change of heart from the politician and the government giving sides permission to restart solo workouts on Monday.

However, he wrote in a Facebook post this evening: “I’ve seen some strange things doing the rounds, but nothing has changed with regards to what I’ve always said about football: team training will not resume before May 18 and resuming the season is something that hasn’t really been talked about.

“For now, sorry but I’d rather focus on all other sports and complexes (gyms, dance centres, swimming pools, etc.), which must reopen as soon as possible!”

Spadafora used the term ‘allenamenti delle squadre’, which literally translates to ‘training of squads’, suggesting teams could not yet train in groups.

On the other hand, some have interpreted his remarks as a reference to all types of training, throwing tomorrow’s plans for several Serie A sides into doubt.
