Genoa president Preziosi calls for Serie A to be suspended

Genoa president Enrico Preziosi believes the Serie A season needs to be suspended following the fatal shooting of Lazio fan Gabriele Sandri.

"You can't pretend that nothing happened yesterday," Preziosi told Radio Kiss Kiss. "This is the umpteenth demonstration that something isn't working.

"I don't agree with banning away fans. Why should we have to stop honest citizens who want to watch a game in another city?"

Preziosi's solution to the current crisis is one of the more radical suggestions to be proposed over the last 24 hours.

"It's not right to punish everyone just to stop a few. Rather than stop a single game or ban away fans, I'd be inclined to suspend the championship until something changes.

"Two or three months off would help show the world of football it's true nature.

"I don't believe in the culture of prohibition, rather I think we need to apply the rules that we already have.

"The laws are there to stop these events, but they are never fully applied. I think it's time to call an end to this."
