The Italian government says only minor changes are needed to the FIGC’s medical protocol ahead of team training resuming on May 18.
Ministers Vincenzo Spadafora [pictured] and Roberto Speranza released a joint-statement this afternoon, all-but-confirming Serie A clubs could restart group work next Monday.
“The scientific committee has given its verdict, requested by the Government, on the medical protocol and confirmed the prudent approach taken so far by the ministers,” it read.
“The indications of the committee, which are to be considered stringent and binding, will be transmitted to the Federation for the required adjustments to the protocol so that teams can resume training in safety from May 18.”
Although the adjustments are described as being ‘required’, they are considered to be mere formalities.
Once they have been implemented, the government will be able to formally give the green light.
