Italian clubs spend €50m

Italian clubs spent just €50m in the January transfer window, with the English Premier League spending almost 10 times that.

Cairo: ‘Serie A should break away’

Torino President Urbano Cairo says Serie A should consider following the example of the Premier League, by breaking away from the FIGC.

Yesterday the Federation failed to elect a new President, while there has been no head of the Lega Serie A since last April.

In 1992, top flight English clubs resigned from the Football League to form their own breakaway Premier League, meaning they have commercial independence from The Football Association and the Football League.

Serie A second for TV revenue

Juventus and Inter are in Europe’s top 20 for broadcast revenue, but the champions are still behind the likes of Southampton and Leicester City.

Today UEFA has released its European Club Footballing Landscape report, and unsurprisingly the English Premier League dominates in terms of TV revenue.

Serie A is actually second in terms of aggregate broadcasting revenue with €1bn, but is completely dwarfed by the Premier League’s €2.27bn.

Ogbonna questions Italy absence

West Ham United defender Angelo Ogbonna admits he does not know whether his absence from the Italy squad is “political or technical”.

Ogbonna has not appeared for Italy since September 2016, when he played 28 minutes of their 3-1 win against Israel, and the former Juventus stopper suggested the grounds for his omission had similarities with those of fellow Euro 2012 finalist Mario Balotelli.

“I think I’ve changed a lot in England, especially in terms of character,” he told Corriere della Sera.

Juve in the balance with Spurs

Their Champions League experience just about make Juventus favourites to beat Tottenham Hotspur, writes Richard Thomas.

All things considered, a Champions League Round of 16 meeting with Tottenham Hotspur represents a satisfactory outcome for Juventus at Monday’s draw in Nyon.

Though the ideal scenario on paper would undoubtedly have seen the Old Lady paired with Turkish champions Besiktas, Max Allegri and co will be relieved to have avoided paying the price for finishing second in Group D by being drawn against tournament favourites Paris Saint-Germain or Manchester City.

Conte charged with misconduct

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been charged with misconduct by the English FA after he was sent off against Swansea City.

The Italian tactician has until December 5 to respond to the charge.

He can either pay a fine of £8,000 or contest it and perhaps be given a touchline ban.

The 48-year-old was sent to the stands by referee Neil Swarbrick and he fumed at what he claimed were Swansea time-wasting tactics.

Serie A seeks Premier League-style split

The crisis at the FIGC could see Serie A break away in a similar style to the Premier League or use that threat to gain more power.

Italy failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, prompting the dismissal of Azzurri Coach Giampiero Ventura and resignation of Federation President Carlo Tavecchio.

The CONI (Italian Olympic Committee) has warned it will put the FIGC under a special Commissioner unless they can find a new President capable of enacting sweeping reforms.
