Damiano Tommasi, the president of the Italian Footballers' Association (AIC), has cast doubt on the possibility of Serie A restarting in April.

Sporting activity in Italy, including Serie A, has been suspended until at least April 3 following the outbreak of COVID-19.

Tommasi told Che Tempo Che Fa (h/t Goal's Sacha Pisani):

"It's clearly impossible to start playing at the beginning of April.

"If all goes well, we can resume in May or June. When we talk about football, people think we are only ensuring the safety of players, but there's a whole world behind the team.
