Roma to resume training

Roma have announced that their players will resume training next week after the capital region gave them and Lazio the green light.

The region of Lazio, which governs Rome, confirmed this evening that they would allow its professional sports clubs to restart individual work on May 6.

Soon after, the Giallorossi tweeted: “Roma would like to thank the Lazio Regione for its sensitivity towards team sports.

“Next week, Roma players will undergo medical assessments and begin individual training sessions – observing safe distancing guidelines – at the Trigoria training centre.”

It caps off an eventual day for Italian football, which began with Sassuolo becoming the first Serie A side to confirm they would resume training.

They were followed by Emilian neighbours Parma and Bologna, before Minister of Sport Vincenzo Spadafora performed a U-turn, having initially refused to entertain the idea of teams getting back to work on Monday.

ANSA reports he wrote to the scientific-technical committee of Italy’s Civil Protection Department yesterday, asking them to also apply the case for individual sports restarting on May 4 to team sports.
