Gravina resigns from Lega Pro

Gabriele Gravina has officially announced his resignation as Lega Pro President, as he prepares to take over the FIGC.

A new head of the federation will finally be elected on October 22, and the 65-year-old is the only candidate.

That means he will almost certainly be elected, unless over 25 per cent of the stakeholders abstain.

The groups are Serie A, Serie B, the Players’ Union, the Lega Pro, the Coach’s Union, the Referees’ Association and the Amateur League.

Cassano joins Virtus Entella

Antonio Cassano will start training with Virtus Entella from Monday, but the club isn’t sure if it’s in Serie B or Serie C.

Entella announced the move via Twitter today and there will be “no contractual obligation” as of yet.

His first training session will be open to the public and crowds are expected to attend.

Cassano has been a free agent hovering between retirement and the continuation of his career since January 2017, when Sampdoria terminated his contract early.

Serie B appeal to Government

An appeal from five clubs has been sent to the Italian Government in a bid to resolve the chaos around Serie B, but Virtus Entella wouldn’t sign it.

The situation is reaching critical point after a series of conflicting and contradictory legal rulings.

This chaos erupted over the summer when Avellino, Bari and Cesena went bankrupt, but rather than replace them with sides from Serie C, the FIGC and Lega Serie B opted to simply reduce the division to 19 clubs.

Serie B: We're not suspended!

The confusion over Serie B rages on, as the Lega Serie B insist the tournament has not been suspended, despite the CONI announcement.

Last week the CONI (Italian Olympic Committee) judging panel deemed the appeal from Pro Vercelli, Novara, Catania, Siena and Ternana for the quintet to be entered into Serie B as inadmissable.

Juventus B Team lose debut

The Juventus B-Team made its historic Serie C debut with a 2-1 home defeat to Alessandria.

This is the first season in which top flight clubs are allowed to enter their reserve sides into another level of domestic competition.

It is a way of helping Under-23 players, mainly Italians, to develop without going out on loan.

Juve are the only club to have registered their B-Team so far and it wasn’t an auspicious debut, as they lost 2-1 at home to Alessandria.

Serie B: Clubs win new appeal

The legal battle over whether Serie B has 19 or 22 teams this season is back on after Pro Vercelli won an appeal to suspend the ruling.

It had seemingly been resolved once and for all when the CONI (Italian Olympic Committee) judging panel declared that the appeal from Pro Vercelli, Catania, Siena and Ternana was inadmissible.

However, this evening Pro Vercelli got the all-clear from the TAR tribunal in the Lazio region to suspend the CONI ruling.

Berlusconi's Monza birthday gift

Milan legend Silvio Berlusconi is expected to announce the purchase of Lega Pro/Serie C side Monza on his 82nd birthday.

The man who took Milan to the top of world football and controlled the club for over 30 years sold up to Yonghong Li in April 2015.

He misses the sport, though, and is set for a new venture with the local side that had for decades acted as a feeder club to Milan: Monza.

‘Seven promotions to Serie B!’

The Serie B chaos is far from over, as the President of the Lega Pro says they’ll ask for seven teams to be promoted this year.

Avellino, Bari and Cesena all failed to register for the second division this season, and FIGC commissioner Roberto Fabbricini controversially passed a reform allowing the league to start with 19 teams instead of 22.

In the current setup, one team gets a rest week in each round as there are an uneven number of teams in Serie B.
