‘Expert’ Tavecchio defends record

Carlo Tavecchio has leapt to the defence of his record as FIGC President. “I’m a football expert.”

Tavecchio stepped down from the FIGC after Italy’s failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, which marked their first no-show for 60 years, but the 75-year-old made it clear he had still plenty to offer.

“I hope those supported by the majority will work to find a credible President,” he told Corriere dello Sport.

Entella in Serie B?

Italian football’s summer of chaos takes another twist, as CONI effectively rules Virtus Entella should be in Serie B - after they’ve already played in Serie C.

The lower leagues have been in complete turmoil, with Serie B reduced to 19 teams after the bankruptcies of Avellino, Bari and Cesena.

That is still being appealed by Pro Vercelli and Ternana, and it’s still possible that the season could be halted until appeals can be held on September 28.

Chievo face 15-point deduction?

The FIGC’s prosecutor is reportedly standing by his demands for Chievo to be handed a 15-point deduction for alleged false accounting.

Chievo were initially not charged due to a technicality, with the prosecutor erroneously denying the club a hearing by July 15, thinking the deadline had expired.

Clubs pledge new Serie B appeal

Lawyers for the Serie C clubs have already announced they’ll lodge another appeal after the CONI ruled Serie B will remain with 19 clubs.

The verdict finally arrived today from the CONI after several days of confusion and Lega Pro confirmed they’ll draw up the fixture list tomorrow morning.

The chaos began over the summer, when clubs Bari, Avellino and Cesena went bankrupt and failed to register for the new season in mid-July.

Serie B remains with 19 clubs

The CONI has given its verdict and Serie B will remain with 19 teams, despite appeals to expand it back to 22 by excluded clubs.

The chaos began over the summer, when clubs Bari, Avellino and Cesena went bankrupt and failed to register for the new season in mid-July.

Rather than keep Serie B at 22 teams and bring in replacements from Lega Pro/Serie C, the decision was made on August 13 to simply start again with the remaining 19 sides.

The decision over whether Serie B will remain at 19 teams or move to 22 has been postponed until Tuesday – delaying the Lega Pro fixture list again.

Avellino, Bari and Cesena failed to register for the new season due to financial problems and rather than bring other sides back up from Lega Pro/Serie C, they decided to simply reduce the division to 19 teams.
