Venezia insist they want to play against Inter

Venezia President Duncan Niederauer insists the Lagunari want to play against Inter even if five players included in their 25-man squad list have COVID.

Inter and Venezia are supposed to meet at 17.00 UK time at San Siro tomorrow.

There was fear that the game would not go ahead as Venezia had eight players positive for COVID.

The new Serie A protocol states that matches can be postponed if nine players of a single team have contacted the virus. Venezia appear to have fewer cases and are therefore ready to face Inter tomorrow.

Serie A COVID protocol finalised, no vaccine mandate

“Starting from tonight and after completing the tests yesterday and this morning, we can affirm that we are preparing for tomorrow’s game against Inter,” Venezia statement read.

“Following Lega Serie A’s guidelines, we have presented a list of 25 players by today at 12.00. Of those 25 players, five are positive, but they had been put in isolation and obviously won’t travel to Milan with their teammates.

“Those who will travel to Milan have been negative in the previous 24 hours and will undergo further examinations tonight, as required by the rules.

“Unless tonight’s tests say otherwise, we intend to play against Inter tomorrow at 18.00. We respect the rules and our players are ready to play, fight and give their best tomorrow. The team that we will field is strong and is ready to represent Venezia and the lions that we are.

“We hope that the international break will help all the clubs to recover their best fitness and finish the season together.”
