Pozzo says it’s better to wait until “we’ve passed the critical phase” before thinking about restarting.

He says if a team is ordered into quarantine after playing two or three matches because a player tests positive and the season is stopped again “we’ll have made a huge mistake.”

Udinese was three points above the relegation zone in 14th place before Serie A was suspended on 9 March.
