Tuttosport: Lega Serie A will not grant postponements despite recent Covid surge

By Isak Möller -

In the last few days, since the players came back from Christmas holiday, there has been a considerable increase in Covid-19 cases. AC Milan have registered two but there are some clubs that have even more.

Ciprian Tatarusanu was the first Rossoneri player to test positive this year and it was announced yesterday that another player also has tested positive. The name wasn’t mentioned, as per the request of the player.

As reported by Tuttosport this morning (via MilanNews), Lega Serie A have made it clear that they won’t accept any postponement requests. It would set a dangerous precedent to even grant one, especially considering the already tight schedule.

At the start of the pandemic, and after lockdown, there was a figure for how many cases you can have before a game is postponed. That figure no longer exists and should a team fail to present themselves for a game, they would lose by default.

  1. What happens if both teams of a fixture can’t play because of too many covid positive players?
    This stance might force clubs to take stricter measures against covid but with this highly contagious variant, we will see what happens. Hopefully, it won’t get out of hand!
