Juventus President Andrea Agnelli has confirmed that the club have “the firm intention of ending the 2019-20 season”.

The Juve patron had limited his responses on the issue of whether the season should continue, but reportedly gave a firm response during the emergency Lega Serie A assembly.

“I also join in the compliments and unanimous support for the work of President Dal Pino, and I take this opportunity to strongly reiterate one thing,” he was quoted as saying by Tuttosport.

“You all know that I’m not very media-friendly and I prefer to be silent. That may have fuelled wrong interpretations of Juventus’ desire.

“Well, I can strongly reiterate that Juventus have the firm intention of ending the 2019-20 season.

“As for starting training on May 18 and matches in June, there will be ways and times to end the season, respecting the instructions given by UEFA and the ECA.”
