Brescia Captain Says Whole Club Opposes Serie A's Return

ROME (AP) — With his team based in the Lombardy region where nearly 15,000 people have died from the coronavirus, Brescia captain Daniele Gastaldello said his entire squad opposes resuming the Serie A soccer season.

“In Brescia we’ve all been touched,” Gastaldello told Italian daily La Repubblica in an interview published Thursday. “We all know someone who has been directly hit by the tragedy. We’ve realized how little it takes to ruin a family.”

While most clubs in the Italian league are resuming training on an individual basis this week, last-place Brescia is one of the holdouts.
