No League Action For Moses, Aina, Ekong As Serie A Follows EPL In Suspending Matches Indefinitely
Three Nigerian players in Victor Moses, William Troost-Ekong and Ola Aina will not return to the pitch at the end of May following a decision by the Lega Serie A on Friday, April 3.

The Lega Serie A held a meeting with the Italian Players Union, with clubs participating, and came to an unanimous decision to suspend the league indefinitely as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The English Premier League had earlier decided to postpone the resumption of the league indefinitely.

"The Lega Serie A assembly meeting took place this afternoon, with all 20 clubs present via video conference, " the Lega Serie A said in a statement published by Football Italia.

"The position that emerged from talks between UEFA, ECA and the European Leagues held yesterday was represented at the meeting.

"With regards to the possible completion of the remaining Serie A and Coppa Italia matches, Lega Serie A will only consider the resumption of sporting activity when health conditions allow it, adhering, as it has always done, to government decrees and taking into primary consideration the protection of the health of the players and all those involved.

"In facing the different scenarios, which are still uncertain, Lega Serie A - with the participation of club representatives - will continue to analyse the impact and consequences of COVID-19 on medical, economic, regulatory, sporting and risk-assessment levels for the clubs and Lega Serie A itself in the coming days."

Chelsea-owned wing-back Victor Moses has featured in seven games since joining Inter Milan in the January transfer window, while Ekong and Aina have been involved in 24 and 22 domestic games respectively.
