Damiano Tommasi has announced his resignation as President of the Italian Players’ Association (AIC) with immediate effect.
There will be an election for a new President, but until then vice-president Umberto Calcagno will take on the functions of the President.
Tommasi has been part of the AIC since 1999 and became President in 2011, replacing Sergio Campana.
“There were many complicated moments and we emerged from them with union and teamwork,” wrote the former Roma midfielder in a statement.
