FIP president lashes out at league

“The League only has the television rights, everything else is FIP’s. We had left it other functions, now we will take them back.” These are the very harsh words of Petrucci to Corriere dello Sport that, in fact, announce a “limitation” of the power of the Serie A League.

The FIP number one was clear: “Since the results hoped for have not been achieved, already this season there will be a greater presence of the FIP brand on the league. And since the convention with the LBA has already expired, from next year we will make sure that we officially make it known that the league is the Federation’s, taking back some of the tasks.” What will be the reaction of Gandini, president of the League (reappointed to lead the LBA last July with a three-year agreement), remains to be seen.
