Albertini: I’ve offered change

Demetrio Albertini has reflected on his objective for today’s FIGC vote, insisting he has offered clubs the chance of change.

The former Milan midfielder and FIGC Vice-President is up against overwhelming favourite Carlo Tavecchio in today’s vote in Rome to succeed Giancarlo Abete as Federation President.

“I have issued a challenge based on ideas. I have made myself available, offering an opportunity for change,” Albertini has told reporters today in the capital.

“The objectives for today? To exhibit during my speech the sporting project that is the basis of my proposal.

“I care about the development of young people, I hope that clubs think as we do and we believe that we can produce a project all united.”

Speculation is that once Tavecchio wins, he will approach Antonio Conte to take over as Italy CT.

“We will think about this after the election,” Albertini responded.
