FIGC‘s President Carlo Tavecchio has released an interview to ‘La Politica nel Pallone’ in which he reaffirmed his intention to reduce the number of clubs in the Italian Serie A.
“We will have a meeting at the beginning of the new year. I hope we will have the possibility to find a solution in a very collaborative way. We aim to change something within 3-4 years.
The number of clubs playing in the Italian professional leagues must be reduced. Currently there are 120 clubs and we should get to around 70 teams.
This is what we would like to do even because several clubs could save money in this way. The issue is that those clubs that are on the right side of the standings will never be in agreement with those on the left side.”
Carlo Tavecchio spoke about the VAR as well.
“This is a great means of justice. We have to develop this technology even further. Currently, the referees are making decisions in 20-30 seconds but they have to speed up their judgment.
However, we always have to remember that behind technology there are men and human beings are not infallible.”
