Tavecchio: ‘Juve good for calcio’

FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio lauds an ‘amazing achievement’ by Juventus after the club reached the Champions League final.

The Federation President also praised the positive impact the Bianconeri’s campaign has had on Italian football, and talked up Fiorentina and Napoli.

“Juventus is a symbol of Italian excellence,” Tavecchio said, as reported by Tuttomercatoweb.

“Having got to the final in Berlin is an amazing achievement, and a positive thing for our football.

“Now we’re all cheering for Napoli and Fiorentina, as it would be great if Italy was also represented in Warsaw [in the Europa League final].”

Fiorentina need a minor miracle to overcome a 3-0 first leg defeat against Sevilla, but Napoli will advance with a win against Dnipro in Ukraine.
