Serie B President Andrea Abodi has confirmed his League will support Carlo Tavecchio in the upcoming FIGC presidential election.
The head of the Italian second tier, who spoke to Sky Sport at the unveiling of the 2014-15 Serie B fixture calendar, cites unity between the Leagues and the need for change as key reasons for his preference for Tavecchio over Demetrio Albertini.
“The most important thing is to see the four Leagues find a unity of purpose, something that has never happened before,” Abodi said.
“This shows the desire to work on the modernisation of the system. Simplifications like B teams won’t work.
“Instead, we can work with Tavecchio and the other three Leagues and move forward. From August 12, therefore, we will be happy to collaborate.”
