On the sidelines of the visit to the Venetian headquarters of the FIGC, the federal president Gabriele Gravina expressed his wishes for the national team Roberto Mancini in view of the Europeans: “The national team today represents a sort of prominent reference element of the reality of the work we want to carry out. Regardless of what the final result will be, having our Italy back on its feet is already a great success. Our project has very solid foundations, we asked Mancini to tell a new, different story made of enthusiasm. We are a big family, it can be felt by the kids. At the European Championship the minimum goal is to get to Wembley. A little luck is needed, but where luck has little impact is on planning “.
Gravina also returns to the topic, extremely dear to him, of the reform of Italian football: “The reform of the world of football is a necessity and an obligatory step. Time is very tight. There will be a Federal Council in which I will ask for a exception of 30-60 days to leave in 2022-2023. We can no longer go on like this, I will certainly make a proposal by that date.My logic is a system logic that foresees a shock absorber between the different sports competitions and categories. I will make my first proposal by June 30th. If there is no reply, I will call an extraordinary assembly “.
