Juventus hero Marchisio: More to football restart than millionaire players

Juventus hero Claudio Marchisio says football's restart means more than just Serie A's millionaires.

Marchisio has highlighted the struggles of those beyond the Serie A locker rooms, but rely on football for a living.

“The focus on the restart has been only on footballers, their millionaire salaries and their lives," said Marchisio, “but the world of football is so vast, there are so many people both inside and outside a football club.

“Many people who work, many families. It was right not to dwell on that and luckily it seems that the right direction has been found to start again … even if it will not be the same, as it is not the same in many sectors.

“It makes almost no sense without the public, it is unreal, but it is right to start over for everything."
