BOLOGNA. In his post on Instagram the word “vaccines” never appears, but the social outburst of the Bologna forward, Nicola Sansone, seems a clear reference to the latest provisions on the Super Green Pass that also involve the world of football: “We live in a world of shit where human rights don’t matter a shit !!! There is no longer the freedom of choice !!! »writes Samson on Instagram.
Also for the players of the major leagues, from 10 January, they will have to respect the provisions concerning all outdoor sports, of any level. Currently, in Serie A alone, there are over 50 members – footballers or staff members – in isolation because they are in contact with Covid and the number sets a small record.
No comment comes from the rossoblu club for now. On Instagram Samson does not explain further the reason for his outburst, but on several sites the footballer is indicated as a possible supporter of the No Vax theories.

Fiorentina, another positive player
Meanwhile, another Fiorentina player tested positive after the swabs made today. The company communicated it, even if the name was not disclosed. The team, however, will not go on the bubble: according to reports from the same viola club, the player in question has not had any contact with his teammates, he has spent these days of celebration with some family members who are now positive, so the contagion – they reiterate from the company – is occurred outside the sports center. Since the resumption of training, last Tuesday, this is the fifth case of positivity: two players with the one that emerged from today’s tests and three members close to the first team. Meanwhile, after the rest day granted yesterday, the Italian has gathered his team to continue the preparation in view of the match on 6 January at Franchi with Udinese against which the top scorer of the championship, Dusan Vlahovic, regularly present at today’s training, will try to start the new year in the best way, to the sound of goals and great performances. From now on he will also be able to count on the class and the assists of Jonathan Ikoné, whose purchase from Lille will be made official tomorrow by Fiorentina on the occasion of the opening of the winter transfer market.
And if the Italian Super Cup final between Inter and Juventus is played regularly on January 12 at the San Siro, the pandemic continues to wipe out football teams, in Italy and abroad. The latest excellent cases in chronological order are Psg champion Leo Messi and Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini. The Juventus defender, who had a positive result yesterday evening, will be forced to miss the big league match against Napoli (in turn struggling with the positivity of Lozano, Elmas and Osimhen) on January 6 and almost certainly also the final itself. of Supercoppa. In turn, Inter will be without Edin Dzeko at the resumption of the championship with Bologna. The Bosnian, also positive, is naturally in doubt also for the match against Juve.
Two also infected in Rome
Two positives have emerged today also in Rome, one is the Spaniard Borja Mayoral who was already in isolation after a contact with a positive. An infected person then announced the Venice: it is a new member.
The situation in Serie B
In Serie B, a mega outbreak broke out in Ternana which “following the checks carried out during the holiday period, 17 members of the team group (including 13 players) tested positive for the Covid 19 virus”. Equally serious situation in Crotone with eleven positive Covid-19 players and staff members. In addition, another member of the team, vaccinated, was placed in isolation as a close contact of a positive. In Cosenza, on the other hand, 3 positives emerged today. An even heavier emergency in Trieste, where Triestina, a Serie C club, “with three more positive cases” saw the total figure in the team group updated to 23 elements. Serie B and Serie C have already postponed the championship days scheduled at the turn of the Christmas holidays, precisely because of the difficult situation of the infections.
Abroad, as mentioned, the case of Messi is taking place. The Argentine ace tested positive on his return from vacation along with 3 other PSG players, the others are winger Juan Bernat, reserve goalkeeper Sergio Rico and 19-year-old midfielder Nathan Bitumazala. Liverpool instead had to do without Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino and Joel Matip in the big match of the Premier League against Chelsea. The two Brazilian players and the Cameroonian defender tested positive for Covid-19 in the hours before the match. Therefore the three were available for the game, being already isolated pending a new test. The Reds were also without coach Jurgen Klopp on the bench, in turn a positive suspect. Finally, Ronaldo, the new patron of Cruzeiro, was also positive in Brazil.
