FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio admits Aleksander Ceferin’s rise to UEFA power happened “in a way that not even we expected”.
Ceferin was the unanimous choice to succeed Michel Platini on Wednesday, and while Tavecchio made it clear the former Slovenian FA chief quickly became Italy’s man, he remained surprised by how quickly the 47-year-old won so many federations over.
“The forecast we made at the time was substantiated, in a way that not even we expected ourselves,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
