Brescia owner Massimo Cellino believes there immediately a line must be put through the Serie A. He finds it incredible that some clubs to train again.

“It would be of little intelligence witnesses if we continue this season,” Cellino told Corriere dello Sport. “I can think of at this time only to next season.”

Brescia, located in the Lombardy region, is one of the cities that has been hit hard by the coronavirus. In the last 24 hours alone, 52 deaths occurred in the city. Saturday the measures were further tightened in Italy.

Cellino also lashed out at clubs like Lazio wanting foot bales as soon as possible. “Let Lazio have good title, if they so badly want,” he fulminated. “How can we talk here about the Serie A, while the plague is on our doorstep? Football’m not interested now.”

“Population Brescia suffer in silence ‘

The entrepreneur has to do mainly with locals. “You feel helpless. Every day people lose their parents, relatives or friends. They suffer in silence. Life is for me priority, so is football season just does not happen anymore.”

“People who do not realize what’s going on, are worse than the virus itself,” Cellino continued. “I do not believe in miracles, because I already stopped long ago, we must press the reset button, it is about survival Be realistic:… This is the plague.”

The Brescia-owner understands that also has financial implications stopping the competition. For him, then everyone shares in the cost. “We played two-thirds of the league, so grab a third of salaries down, a third of the TV rights and a third of the taxes. This is the easiest solution.”
