UEFA President Ceferin 'confident' Serie A will finish despite ongoing COVID-19 crisis

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin told Slovenian news outlet Ekipa that he hoped to see all major European football competitions complete their respective league matches in the coming months after the coronavirus lockdown is through. Aleksander Ceferin was quoted as saying, “I am optimistic that we will see the end of the Spanish league (LaLiga), I am optimistic that we will see the end of the Italian league (Serie A), and I am optimistic in general. Of course, I cannot guarantee anything, I cannot promise anything.”

The coronavirus Italy situation garnered the interest of the sports fraternity when two players from Serie A leaders Juventus - Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi - tested positive for coronavirus. Argentina international Paulo Dybala also contracted the virus later. With the COVID-19 crisis escalating in Europe, Serie A was then suspended until further notice.
