Douglas Costa, who traveled to Brazil to spend the days of confinement in Italy and the stoppage of the championship, has spoken about the situation of Juventus on the Esporte Interativo channel. In an interview given from his home patio, the winger explained that the club’s initial intention was to return to training in early April.
Considering that the serious situation caused by the coronavirus in Italy is far from over, it is very possible that the team can only meet at the end of the month. “We are waiting for the situation to improve in Italy. We had to return on the 3rd. I spoke with the captain and he said that we will be back on the 15th or 20th hopefully. It is all very confusing. At the moment I am at home with the family. It is good that we can be with the family a little. And only with them because you cannot be with anyone else, “he said.
There are no matches and no group training and the players must remain isolated and following the security protocol regardless of where they are. Juventus has not yet officially informed its footballers if it will discount the days of the holidays: “I do not know how they are going to do it. We are not working but we are charging.” “The issue of salary is complicated because when you take money from the player, the player complains. Here we talked everything between us and we knew that at any moment it could get worse and that it would affect the pocket too. We are aware of that and we are together with the other teams. The club is not to blame for the virus. No one had a ball to know that this was going to happen and all sports would have to stop, not just soccer, “he added.
Regarding the possibility of finishing the championship, Douglas Costa said he does not know “if it will continue.” “It is possible that they give the title to the leader and that it is necessary to begin again”
