La Repubblica claim one of the Serie A representatives attending Wednesday’s 20-club Lega meeting has tested positive for COVID-19.
If true, that would spark a domino effect requiring all those who attended to have tests and potentially go into precautionary self-isolation.
Just 10 days before the start of the season, that’d have a very damaging effect on the way the league is run, not to mention the transfer negotiations that are currently in full swing.
According to La Repubblica, one of the 20 club Presidents or directors who attended the meeting in Milan tested positive for COVID-19.
To make matters worse, the report also states the person was spotted not always wearing his mask correctly during the meeting.
This had been the first Lega Serie A physical meeting in months following a series of virtual encounters during the lockdown.
