The Italian FA President, Carlo Tavecchio has just resigned.
An FIGC official confirmed that the resignation was due to the fact that the team failed to qualify for the World Cup.
74-Year-Old Tavecchio had handed over his resignation during a crisis meeting of the Italian Football Federation in Rome.
“He informed us of his resignation,” Damiano Tommasi, the head of the Italian Players’ Union, told journalists outside the federation headquarters.
Meanwhile, the Italian coach, Gian Piero Ventura was sacked last week after Sweeden defeated the team 1-0. The defeat saw the four-time champions miss the World Cup for the first time since 1958.
