Inter coach Roberto Mancini believes the Italian season should be ended immediately if fans continue to be refused entry to games.
Only a limited number of grounds are currently open to spectators after the imposition of security regulations following the death of a police officer in the Sicilian derby between Catania and Palermo on 2nd February.
Inter were one of the teams to play behind closed doors on Sunday as they won 2-0 at Chievo’s Bentegodi stadium.
However Mancini feels that the entire season should be written off – with current leaders Inter handed the Scudetto – if the ban on spectators is maintained.
“This is not football. We might as well quit right here and start again in September,” said Mancini.
“My words are clearly a provocation, but to play without fans makes no sense.
“We should do as they do in Formula One – when the conditions to continue are no longer favourable, they stop and the one who is leading wins.
“What happened in Catania was very serious and no family should lose a father in such an absurd situation.
“But let’s not forget that in Italy nothing has been done, we always delay our reaction.
“Our stadia are old and let’s not talk about the state of the pitch. Like this, it’s impossible to attract people to the stadia.”
