Sampdoria’s President Massimo Ferrero said it would be meaningless to reopen the league without fans in the Cornivirus epidemic, as the Serie A season “must end here”.

CVID-1 was suspended indefinitely last month due to the outbreak of CVID-1, and authorities insisted they would not consider taking action again until it was safe to do so.

It remains to be seen when the 201920 campaign returns, but matches behind closed doors are almost certainly in Italy, where more than 17,600 people have died from the coronary virus.

“Let’s organize ourselves that this championship should end here and now,” he told Terrain.

“I say this with a heavy heart, because I want to start again, but only when I see our beautiful stadium is the fans beaten.

“I saw Sampdoria-Verona behind closed doors and it hurt my life after watching my silent game. How can you celebrate the result of this secluded landscaping?

“Why bother to play games without the fans, the colors, the noise and the cheer, the football, it’s entertainment and 90 minutes of pure adrenaline fans without a game, even what is it?”

The last Serie A game before the league was suspended was March 9 – Sassuolo beat Brescia 3-0.

Sampdoria was one point above the relegation zone after the 2 games third game after stopping at Serie last month.
