The first high-level league to report its return is the German Bundesliga, which announced its return on May 16.
And former Juventus and Italy international Alessandro Del Piero says he would prefer Italian Serie A to “end properly” rather than being canceled or canceled, like the leagues in France and the Netherlands.
“It’s a big thing, a big unpredictable thing. The priority should be the health of people, not just players,” Del Piero told Amanda Davies of CNN Sport on Instagram Live.

“I really hope there will be a way to end the league properly. Players should be aware that they may have to play longer … until July and August.”

“We are experiencing something really new. In unusual situations, you have unusual consequences. As a fan, I hope it starts again. I miss it in every way.”
