The president of the FIGC, Gravina, has released some statements on a probable repechage of Italy at the World Cup. Below is an excerpt of his words.
Gravina: “Talking about repechage for the World Cup makes us not very credible!”
“This constant talk of the repechage for the World Cup is making us less credible. THE’Italy is out of the Qatar, we lost on the pitch and thinking of a repechage is making fun of us and not being credible. I love to face the problems and I take the responsibility. It is a delicate phase, we must rebuild ours credibility. We have always said the truth to Italian, knowing that sometimes it is also uncomfortable “.
Gravina controversial: “Do you really think that my and the coach’s abandonment would have generated positive effects?”
“We come from an extraordinary result. The European championship was won by a normal team that became special, but this team then returned to normal and now suffers because we have had injuries, some are very tired, others accuse age limits and Chiellini has retired ”. Finally on the rumors of resignation: “I would like to make it clear that such an act would have negative consequences, do you really think that my abandonment and that of the coach would have generated positive effects?”
