Federcalcio President Carlo Tavecchio believes an 18-team Serie A would improve the quality of Italian football.
The head of Italian football’s governing body has long been an advocate of reducing the number of teams in the League but has encountered opposition to his plans.
Though he initially intended to bring about the change ‘by 2016,’ he now accepts it could take up to five more years.
