The sub-commissioner of the Italian Football Association (FIGC), Alessandro Costacurta, has already made the announcement: starting next year, it will be a reality with second teams for the clubs in Italy, which in the 2018-2019 championship can register into the Serie C.
In this regard, Michele Criscitiello – director of Sportitalia – spoke at the microphones of Tuttomercatoweb.com: “Sampdoria and Lazio are ahead of everyone else, they will not spend 1.2 million to register a second team of the club – they will buy a club in Serie C in the area for a few thousand euros. They will not have the problem of the implementations and will receive, unlike the second teams, also the 500-600 thousand euros of contributions provided by Lega Pro”.
Therefore, according to Crisciello’s reasoning, the main suspects for Lazio could be Rieti and Viterbese: the first, already approached in the past by Lotito, will soon change ownership. As for Viterbese, however, President Camilli has not yet defined the future of the club.
