Gravina believes finishing the 2019-20 Serie A campaign prematurely would be an ‘injustice’.

Updated: Apr 7, 2020

  • There 12 games left to play in the Serie A this season.

  • Juventus won't accept the Serie A title if the 2019-20 season was to end now due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Italian Football Federation (FIGC) president Gabriele Gravina says Juventus will not be happy to accept the Serie A title if the 2019-20 season was brought to an end now. Maurizio Sarri's Juve side were on course to secure a ninth straight league title before the campaign was brought to a halt until at least April 13 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While the majority of fans have suggested the title should be handed to Juventus, the Serie A chief believes it'll be 'a grave injustice' to do so.

Speaking to TMW Radio, Gravina said: "The top priority is completing the season. "The idea is to start from May 20 or early June, to end in July. "There's even been talk of August and September. I've made it clear that I'd hate to take the risk of compromising another season to save this one. He continued: "I think scrapping the season would be rather complex. It would be a grave injustice, which would lead to a legal emergency during an epidemiological one. "Only the Scudetto would need assigning and Juventus themselves, I believe, have expressed a dislike of such of a solution."
