Tavecchio: ‘18 teams ideal’

Federcalcio President Carlo Tavecchio believes an 18-team Serie A would improve the quality of Italian football.

Though he initially intended to bring about the change ‘by 2016,’ he now accepts it could take up to five more years.

Torino to get 1927 Scudetto?

Torino could have the 1927 Scudetto returned, as FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio is “willing to pursue the matter.”

The Granata won the title that year, but later had it revoked after allegations that a director had bribed Juventus player Luigi Allemandi to win the decisive match.

However, there were substantial doubts, as Allemandi never admitted to receiving the money, and the players at the time declared that the ruling was unfair. The Scudetto was left unassigned.
