14 Novembre 2017
Rome, November 14 - Democratic Party (PD) leader Matteo Renzi said Tuesday that Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) President Carlo Tavecchio and Italy coach Gian Piero Ventura must reflect after the Azzurri failed to qualify for the World Cup. "The 'historic' nature of last night means the soccer movement must reflect, President Tavecchio and coach Ventura first and foremost," the ex-premier said in his Enews news letter. "Soccer in Italy needs to be rebuilt from scratch like never before, starting with how we parents behave when we are in the stands for youth matches up to the live television broadcasts and the promotion of Italian football abroad. "Not taking part in the Russia World Cup is an enormous slap. "Let's use it to help everyone change radically at once".
