Italian giants Napoli are set to resume training amid the coronavirus pandemic despite military enforcing lockdown in the entire country, Mirror reports.

Italy is now the worst hit country with a total 4825 people already dead and more than 53,000 currently infected and are battling for their lives.

The suspended Italian League is due to restart on April 3, but that date is no longer feasible as Italy continues to be seriously affected with huge number of deaths daily.

But Napoli claim they want to resume training next week despite the warnings, but according to the Italian Footballers Association, the members’ (players’) life would be put at risk is clubs begin activities.

The biggest daily death increase was recorded in Italy on Saturday with 793 deaths in 24 hours and despite that, Napoli announced their stars will return to training by Wednesday.

On the Italian Footballers’ Association’s web site, their chief Damiano Tomassi said: “Training now, before the championship resumes, doesn’t make sense. It’s also dangerous.

“Whoever thinks of benefitting by training their team, I don’t know what they have in their minds.”

The Italian Serie A fixtures have been postponed indefinitely as the numbers of infected persons continue to increase in the country.
