With the announcement that Inter, AC Milan and Juventus are demanding that Serie A be reduced to 18 teams, Lazio president Claudio Lotito has reportedly called for Beppe Marotta to resign from the federation.

There are growing tensions within Lega Serie A over the future of the reforms, which the Federation claims would include reducing the division from 20 teams to 18. While Lega Serie A is generally opposed to the idea, Juve, Inter and AC Milan emerged last week in talks with FIGC president Gabriele Gravina to unite behind the overhaul. According to Corriere della Sera, Lazio president Lotito reacted angrily and argued with Inter lawyer Angelo Capellini. He complained that Marotta’s role linking Lega Serie A to FIGC is supposed to represent all 20 teams, so on Monday they will demand his resignation. There are only three Serie A representatives on the 21-member Federal Council, compared with six for the LND (amateur leagues). As the FIGC pushes for reform, Lega Serie A president Lorenzo Casini has warned that they are investigating a secession from the Premier League-style federation that would give them more autonomy. A meeting is scheduled for March 11 to discuss the modification of the FIGC statutes, and the battle is on for the future of Italian soccer.
