Official. Gennaro Gattuso part ways Fiorentina only 22 days after the appointment, because of the problems on transfers strategy with Gattuso’s agent Jorge Mendes. #Fiorentina #Gattuso

Well done Fiorentina it's about time someone told Mendes to fuck off.

Can't he just give the ownership to one of his children, wife or something?

Gazzetta dello Sport: It now appears that Lotito has until this Saturday to resolve the ownership situation with Salernitana. The Campania-based club could be dropped to Serie B if it isn't sorted out.

Napoli patron Aurelio De Laurentiis:

“We have to recognise that the budget has to be revised, or Napoli could go bankrupt. If you want to get Napoli back on track, you must cut excessive spending.

Selling one player might not be enough, we’d need to sell those who vastly increased the wage bill. I probably shouldn’t have made a couple of signings, but I got over-excited and invested too much to lock myself down to a five-year contract that we cannot respect.

Nobody is unsellable if the appropriate proposal comes along. Napoli’s objectives for this season are to balance the books and get back into the Champions League.”

From next season on, Serie A will adopt the Premier League format in which the order of the matches in the second half will not follow the same order as the first half; instead, a new draw will be made (the only criterion is that there must be at least 8 rounds between the same match, i.e. if AxB happens in round 19, BxA can't happen until round 28).

Ridiculous and unnecessary change IMO.

Is there a reason for the change? Does it help TV rights or something? Is it supposed to be considered a fairer championship?

Honestly, all decisions nowadays comes down to money.

Probably trying their best to emulate the success of the English Premier League, but they're trying to do it by copying the small inconsequential shit that's easy to implement, like the uniform captain's armband, or the font on shirts being the same for all teams.

I can only assume it's so clubs don't have to go on a tricky run of games basically in sequence twice in one season. It's stupid but I'm sure it's a reason.

Very well said. Things which are completely irrelevant when it comes to making money.

I don't get that asymmetric schedule thing. Why? I hate that shit.

Supposedly Luis Alberto has gone MIA from Lazio. He's not responding to calls and they haven't seen him lol. They're saying it's because he wants to move to Spain.
