Brescia president Massimo Cellino has some words for fellow Serie A bosses

​Brescia president Massimo Cellino has condemned fellow Serie A bosses for being persistent in resuming the league in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

UEFA announced on Wednesday that they would be suspending the Champions League and Europa League entries for the 2020/21 season indefinitely.

Cellino also hit out at UEFA for the announcement made on Wednesday, further citing that they were thinking about football on a financial basis.

'They can't push anything. The season closes on June 30, when there's the deadline to present the club's budgets and player contracts,' he insisted. 'They are arrogant and irresponsible; they only think about their economic interests and Cups.

'But UEFA doesn't decide for the Italian championship, Italy decides. If Serie A must be resumed, it has to end by June 30. Will they make us play every two days? Or does UEFA also have the power to extend the days and make them 72 hours?

'If UEFA wants to do something useful, they will send oxygen cylinders and respirators to Brescia, we would be grateful for that.'

"I don't give a damn about coming back. I make a general plea. Concluding the season in June is an impossible and risky tour de force.

'To prolong the season you would have to change all national and international rules: player contracts, balance sheets, deadlines with banks, transfer market, preparation, the start of the new season. It would be absolute chaos.'
