Roma will begin training next week in the wake of the carnivirus epidemic, the team at Serie A has announced.
The 2012-20 Serie A season has been postponed since March due to the COVID-19 crisis, which has killed more than 244,500 people worldwide.
All Italian teams will return to training on May 18, a day after the government’s existing lockdown measures expire, but a few are set to resume earlier.
A decree issued in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy on Thursday opened the door for Sassuolo, SPL, Bologna and Parmar to return to training next week.
On Saturday Sassolo was the first team to announce the resumption of training, although the rules of social distance must be adhered to and there can be no public gatherings.

And Roma said in a statement following the statement: “#Asroma would like to thank the Lazio region for its sensitivity to team sports.
“Next week, Roma players will evaluate treatment at the Triggeria Training Center and begin separate training sessions – observing safe distance guidelines.”
An emergency meeting of the Lega Serie A was held on Friday, when it was revealed that all 20 teams had agreed to start campaigning without following the example of ERDVC and League 1, which ended their own season in the coronavirus epidemic.
Italy’s Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora has warned that the government may take steps to end the season if there is no agreement on medical protocols to restart the match.
Lazio had one point clear in 226 games when defending champions Juventus were suspended.
