Baldini slams 'indecisive' league

AP

MILAN, Italy — Roma general director Franco Baldini has slammed the Italian Football League for failing to decide what to do about the Serie A matches that were postponed this weekend.

The postponements were a mark of respect to Livorno midfielder Piermario Morosini, who collapsed and died after suffering a cardiac arrest during a Serie B match at Pescara on Saturday.

On Sunday, Baldini says Italian soccer is made up of "people who even in the most tragic situations . . . cannot avoid seeming ridiculous" and that the league "is not yet capable of making a decision."

The league called an extraordinary board meeting for Monday to try and find a solution. One option is to simply cancel the 33rd round of the championship and not to reschedule the fixtures.
