Cosmetology students from the Roma squad will be back in the stands at their first home game in Serie A after they were told they will have to wait another three months to return to the club.
Paolo Di Castella’s side were due to travel to the city of Catania on Monday for a pre-season friendly against rivals Lazio, but that has been cancelled.
Instead, the squad will get back to training this weekend in Catania and the first two weeks of next season will be spent on the island of Lampedusa.
Roma president Claudio Lotito has admitted that the team will miss out on the chance to play competitive games and the players are hoping that their time in Italy will provide an opportunity for the players to show off their skills and improve their fitness.
The first two home games of the Serie A season have been cancelled as Roma must prepare for their first game away to the Bologna giants on Sunday, March 3.
It is a huge mistake that the players will not be able to participate in the match on Monday, according to coach Paolo di Canio.
I am very disappointed and saddened by this news.
We are not going to play this game at home, but we will get to see the Roma players on the pitch in Catana.
I have said to them that we are not in a position to travel.
I was in contact with the players, they told me that they will not play the game in Catano because it is a big mistake, but the players told me it was because they have not been able to get in contact to our representatives.
The Roma squad is still not in contact.
I have not had any contact with any of the players at the moment, we are still waiting for the news from them.
It would be better if they had played in Catani, the city in which they play their home games, so they could have got the chance for the game to take place there.
We are looking forward to them coming back to Catania.
I believe that it would be good to play on the beach at Catania, that is where the players have played their home matches.
I think it would help us, we could do more, we would like to play in the sunshine and have a good atmosphere.
We can’t play at home because we have to train, we have not got any facilities to play here.
We have the facilities at the training ground, but I am still in contact and I have to check if there is any contact between the players and the representatives.
It will be difficult for them.
We hope that we can have a friendly against them on Monday.
It’s unfortunate that we have missed out on this chance, but it’s also a big step forward, we can’t let the players down.
The players were hoping to return this weekend to Catana for a friendly, but there is no news about that yet.
They are hoping to get the match going in Catanna on March 9, and the club is hoping that they can play in Catamo on Sunday.
They are hopeful that we will play on Monday night, but this is a major step forward for the team and for us.
We will have a look at everything that is happening, we will have an update later on.
We were hoping that the Roma fans would come to Catano, but unfortunately they did not come.
The club is aware that the club has been suffering with this situation and we are very disappointed about this.
We have to take the news very seriously and we will do everything we can to find out how to help the club in this situation.
