Rome, November 14 - The head of Italian sport said Tuesday that he would quit if he were Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) President Carlo Tavecchio after the Azzurri failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. "I have spoken to Tavecchio and I asked him what he intended to do," said Giovanni Malagò, the president of Italian Olympic Committee CONI. "He told me that there would be a FIGC meeting tomorrow. As you know, it's up to the boss to take responsibility. If I were him, I'd resign". Malagò added that he was powerless to intervene. "The CONI president can only put a federation in the hands of commissioners if its sporting justice or its championships do not work or for administrative irregularities," he said. "As of today, none of these three elements are present".
