Italian Serie A clubs want to restart the championship on June 13 after the league’s general assembly met on Wednesday via videoconference.

The general assembly approved the date for resumption “in accordance with government decisions and medical protocols”.

In early May, clubs in the Serie A restarted training with players only training individually.

The Italian Serie A was suspended on March 9 with 12 rounds of games and four outstanding fixtures yet to be played.

Juventus are gunning for their ninth straight Serie A crown and are top of the log, just a point ahead of Lazio.

On Monday, Serie A teams will be able to train collectively in one of the countries worst hit by coronavirus.

A number of players have been infected in Italy with three Fiorentina players and three members of the club’s support staff testing positive for coronavirus,

Also, a Torino player also tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
