Breaking: Ronaldo’s Juventus, other Seria A clubs resolve to finish season

All 20 teams in Italy’s Serie A have voted to finish the 2019/20 season in full.

An emergency meeting was held on Friday amid reports that Torino and Brescia wanted the campaign to be axed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Sun reports.

But it has now been revealed that every team in the league shares the belief that the season should be completed.

The top flight has been suspended since March, but players are preparing to return to training on May 18.

Italian sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora has warned this does not necessarily mean the season will resume.

He has also confirmed the league could axed unless an agreement is reached over the medical protocols that will be in place.

Following the decision to cancel French football until September, Emmanuel Macron is reportedly pushing for the other big leagues in Europe to follow suit.

But Italian football chief Gabriele Gravina has stubbornly vowed to never cancel the campaign.

Italy have suffered over 27,900 deaths and had over 205,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus.

Juventus star Paulo Dybala has now tested positive for Covid-19 four times in the last six weeks.

Premier League chiefs are also determined to finish the season as planned – but face playing an entire season behind player closed doors.
