Lecce defender Giulio Donati jealous of Bundesliga players: Let's play!

Lecce defender Giulio Donati admits there's some jealousy of Bundesliga players after seeing their competition resume over the weekend.

Donati is a former Bayer Leverkusen and Mainz player.

He told Corriere dello Sport, “It's not a coincidence that the Bundesliga was the first European championship to restart.

“We are stuck in chatter. In two and a half months in Italy, no clear strategy has been set for football. We are becoming a joke. Believe me, this situation of eternal expectations is mortifying for us and all those who work in football.

“We can't postpone a decision every time, but that's what is happening in Italy. We have no certainties about anything. In Spain and in England, they are ready to resume. In France they took the opposite direction, but they made one at least."

He added: “I envied my colleagues.

“I thought about their satisfaction in returning to the pitch.

“But talking about the championship resuming, we can't only think about the players. There's a whole movement that gives a job to a lot of people and it has to be put back in motion.

“I'm referring to the warehouse workers, various collaborators, staff members, all the people who have a normal salary. A football team exists also thanks to the work done by all of them."
