Extraordinary meeting in the Federcalcio while the bianconeri are on the pitch for finishing: the hypothesis of a postponement makes its way. The Neapolitans have not reached Turin.
TURIN. An unprecedented clash for the first time that literally sends the world of football into the ball. The tug-of-war between Juventus and Naples is also a battle between institutions: on the one hand there is the Lega Serie A which does not postpone the match and enforces the protocol signed by the club, Cts and Figc, on the other there are the Asl of Naples who stopped Napoli for public health reasons given the fear of an outbreak within Gattuso’s team after the positivity of Zielinski and Elmas.
A very tough battle is announced, given that the lawyers are already on the field and no mediation is being found. Juventus, this morning had the usual finishing training before the match and tonight they will come to the stadium to play, as the League has confirmed the match scheduled at 20.45. In case of absence of Napoli he will get a 3-0 victory.Gattuso’s team is in Naples in fiduciary isolation for 14 days and cannot travel, because it would violate a state law. This is the line of De Laurentiis’ club, already communicated to Lega and Juventus: the provisions of the health authorities are superior to those of sport: “It is clear – is the text of the email sent by the Napoli lawyer – that the team’s departure for Turin would represent a violation of the provision of the local authority competent for health safety, as well as of the current state regulations on the subject, with the consequent responsibilities provided for by the law against offenders ».
In these minutes an extraordinary meeting is underway in the Football Association to decide whether to postpone the game. From what filters, it should be decided precisely for the postponement, as Pietro Lo Monaco, Federal Councilor of the FIGC, announced this morning to the microphones of Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli: «Juventus-Napoli will be postponed. We are moving towards this path: the circular of 2 October of the Lega Calcio speaks for itself. The ASL provision is legitimate, the rule is clear “.
The situation is very delicate. The clubs had just approved a regulation that provided for playing the games in the event of positive players: 13 “healthy” players are enough and at most you can get a referral with at least ten positives to Covid.
This is not the case, but Napoli claims that they were stopped by the authorities for fear of an outbreak, as already happened at Genoa.
The problem is linked to a calendar that has almost no way out and a postponement of Juve-Napoli can postpone the match to mid-January, the first potential useful date between cups and national teams. This is why the League wants us to play, but now the conflict is institutional and the tug of war opens up an unprecedented scenario.
