Lazio comms chief Diaconale takes aim at Juventus

Lazio comms chief Arturo Diaconale has taken aim at Juventus.

The Biancocelesti, who sit one point behind leaders Juve, have been pushing harder than anyone to be allowed to get back to training amid the coronavirus suspension.

“According to Juventus fans, the Government ought to regulate when training can resume, inspired by the concept of starting from a position of equality to benefit all citizens," wrote Diaconale on his Facebook page.

“In their view, as there are some clubs who allowed their players to leave Italy and therefore must put them into quarantine for 14 days before they resume training, the date when training can start must be only after the quarantine is finished.

“All of this would not give any advantage to those clubs who preferred not to give permission for players to leave, predicting that sooner or later, the game would be back.

“Is it too much to hope that the Government isn't influenced by the pressure from Juventus fans to 'level the playing field', which would unjustly penalise those who behaved virtuously and prove an unjustified reward to the others?"
