Serie A could extend January window

The FIGC could scrap their plans to close the Serie A January transfer window on January 18, confirmed Gabriele Gravina. “We await the Lega Serie A decision.”

The decision to introduce the early deadline was made by former Federation Commissioner Giovanni Malagò over the summer.

It comes after the summer transfer deadline was also brought forward to ensure all deals were completed before Serie A football resumed.

However, with the window coming up and most leagues accepting moves until January 31, that could change.

Serie A allows Astori tribute

The Lega Serie A has granted Fiorentina an exemption to the new captain’s armband rule, so German Pezzella can wear the Davide Astori tribute.

For this season the league introduced a standardised armband for all club captains, but the likes of Daniele De Rossi and Papu Gomez, of Roma and Atalanta respectively, ignored the ruling and continued to wear personalised armbands.

That prompted a statement from the Lega declaring that any club flouting the rule would be subject to punishment from Week 4 onward.

Chiellini: 'Armband controversy needless'

Giorgio Chiellini maintains the captain’s armband controversy, particularly around Fiorentina, “was an unnecessary lack of communication.”

The Juventus and Italy defender was asked by Rai Sport about the Lega Serie A threatening to fine anyone wearing a different armband from the standard one handed out this season.

Fiorentina point-blank refused to change theirs, as it includes the ‘DA13’ logo – a tribute to captain Davide Astori, who died in his sleep at the team hotel in March.

Fiorentina negotiate Astori clearance

It’s reported the Lega Serie A has agreed not to fine Fiorentina for their captain’s armband in honour of Davide Astori.

He died in his sleep on March 4 at the age of 31, while awaiting a Serie A match against Udinese.
