The Italian football federation (FIGC) on Monday in Rome was not successful in a new chairman to be elected. The crisis does so, two and a half month after Italy failed to qualify for the world cup in Russia.
Damiano Tommasi, president of the Italian Spelersvereniging (AIC), Cosimo Sibilia, president of the Amateurliga (LND) and Gabriele Gravina, president of the Lega Pro (third division), submitted a candidate for the presidency. After four rounds of elections was, however, none of the three candidates a majority behind him.
Carlo Tavecchio is the outgoing back. He decided on 20 november the towel to throw after Italy had not managed to qualify for the world cup in Russia. Tavecchio followed thereby the example of coach Giampiero Ventura, who shortly after the failed off against Sweden, his conclusions drew.
After the failure of Monday, it seems probable that the Italian football federation under the supervision stand of the Italian olympic committee (Coni). Coni president Giovanni Malago had on Sunday asked for the vote to defer until a new chairman is appointed at the Lega Serie A. That body, is already several months under the supervision of the FIGC and is led on an interim basis by Tavecchio. At present, the Italian football the so without back, ligavoorzitter and coach.
