(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 08 – “Politics and the top part of football unfortunately demonstrate a guilty remoteness from the problems of our national nurseries, which are the future of the movement and of sports in general”. Umberto Calcagno, president of the Assocalciatori, questioned by ANSA harshly criticizes the hypothesis of changes to the growth decree in the part of the tax relief for footballers from abroad: a provision that according to Calcagno should be “repealed”. “Our battle will not stop” “I will not be able to hide all my disappointment if it were true that the undersecretary to the presidency of the Council, with responsibility for sport, Valentina Vezzali, has deliberately flattened herself on the positions of those who do not want the good of our world – underlines Calcagno – Anyone who understands football will have to honestly admit that the possible provision of an income ceiling of only 500,000 euros for access to the tax breaks of the tax regime for returnees, combined with the age threshold (20 years), would not change the current situation and would be useful only to those who, on this delicate problem, want to fill the press reviews with self-referential statements “.

“I have the well-founded fear – adds the president of the players union – that for the umpteenth time the choices will be dictated by purely economic interests, precisely those that in recent years have generated evident damage to our system, with a chronic absence of international sports results. of our clubs and continuing decreases in investments in nurseries.

If this is the choice of Italian politics, our young people will continue to find obstacles in their path of professional growth, disadvantaged by an unfair tax law that penalizes the ‘selectable’ “.” Our battle – concludes Calcagno – will not stop.

We will continue to denounce the distortion of the growth decree in all offices until we see its definitive repeal for the good of all Italian football, while trusting to the last in a mediation, such as the one presented by Senator Nannicini, which can represent a first real sign of a turning point in our country’s sports policy “.
