Brescia warn they won't honour fixtures if Serie A is allowed to resume

Italian side Brescia has warned they will not honour matches if the Serie A is allowed to return amid the continued Coronavirus pandemic. 

The league was the first to be suspended as the country was put under total lockdown, and they are yet to resume as they continue to grapple with the effects. 

The biggest dilemma lies in how the remainder of the season will be handled, with one of the suggestions being playing the remaining matches behind closed doors once the virus is under control. 

However, Brescia president Massimo Cellino feels this will be a risky step, and has said they will be willing to lose the remaining matches. 

"This season doesn't make sense anymore," Cellino told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We're all stopped, no team will return the same as before, matches played behind closed doors, and then there's the risk to the health of the players.

"Returning to activity is pure craziness. If they force us to, I am ready to not put out the team and lose the matches 3-0 by default out of respect for the citizens of Brescia and their loved ones who aren't here anymore."

Brescia are at the bottom of the table on 16 points, nine points off the drop zone, but could still survive if results go their way.
