(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 23 – “Why aren’t we experiencing a happy moment like the one I experienced? This book must be read to understand what is happening in the world of football.
I don’t want to be a school teacher but you will understand my regret. I am saddened to see the critical moment that Italian football is experiencing. Let’s read it together, so we understand. ”This was stated by Antonio Matarrese, former president of Serie A and the FIGC, during the presentation of his book ‘E ora parlo io’, written with Alberto Cerruti for Cairo Editore, at the Coni Hall of Honor. “I don’t want to prosecute, but you are angry – he continued looking at the presidents of Lazio, Claudio Lotito, and of the Lega di A, Lorenzo Casini, present in the room -. There was a fight between the Lega and the FIGC but I see no dialogue, only resistance. Put down your weapons because football is not saved in this way. I was saddened to see the Federation resort to the judiciary against the League, the same family going to court. Football should not be seen as a set of business, but as a family “. Words heard by a kermesse of important guests. From the president of the FIGC, Gabriele Gravina, to the number one of the Cip, Luca Pancalli, passing through the president of Sport and Salute, Vito Cozzoli, and the number one of the Amateur League and Serie C, Giancarlo Abete and Francesco Ghirelli, as well as the host, Giovanni Malagò.
