Today, Carlo Tavecchio resigns from FIGC (Italian Football Federation) :ITA 

Now there are 90 days for electing a new president.

 

Giovanni Malagò, President of CONI, has said will nominee a commissioner this week (Wednesday)

 

Remain other "big troubles" to solved: the two major leagues of our football are without a president from last spring!!!!

Serie A league, from April, have a temporary commissioner (Tavecchio !!!) and Serie B league from March, have a temporary commissioner the lawyer Mauro Balata. After more than six month isn't possible yet, the election of presidents .....

 

The crisis that opens now we hope it will serve to reform something, we don't need another "president for temporary solution" , it needs to be renewed to return to competitive.

i don't understand many things happen in AFC , for example Asia is the only continent that divide teams participating in main tournaments geographically , as east and west teams can't meet each other till the final , the only continent preventing whole countries from taking part in Champions league , only 11 countries out of 47 are allowed to participate in CL , and the biggst invention is preferring players playing in Asia on others playing in Europe who only get meaningless international player of the year prize , u can imagine Asian Legendary Park Ji Sung former Man UTD star has never won this prize

The Coach of GREMIO is Renato "Gaúcho" Portaluppi, now become more than a Hero for the Tricolor's fans (Gremio supporters)  

He has already won, as a player, Copa Libertadores and the Intercontinental Cup (both in 1983).

In Final of Intercontinetantal Cup scored two goals and defeated HSV 2-1.

 

He also played in Italy with Rome (season 88/89 , 23 matches 0 goals) but "without luck" : he is more remembered instead than what he showed on the pitch . He came in italy as a great Brazilian players, and for the presentation at the fans and the press arrived with helicopter!!

The following year is back in Brazil.....
