Tavecchio starts from weak position

In the end, despite his notorious gaffe and calls for a more pronounced renovation in the governance of Italian football, Mr Carlo Tavecchio managed to become the President of the Italian Football Federation.

However, UEFA opened an official investigation on Mr Tavecchio’s controversial statement, and FIFA could follow suit. Even the Prosecutor’s Office of Mr Tavecchio’s own Federation could do the same.

In an interview to the newspaper Il Corriere della Sera Mr Giovanni Malagò, the President of the Italian Olympic Committee, stated that “he would not be surprised at all if [Mr Tavecchio] decided to step aside and resign”.

The Italian Olympic Committee is a public entity with surveillance and governance power over the entire sports galaxy.
