Former Italian Football Federation president Carlo Tavecchio showed his appreciation to Lazio and multiple other clubs for electing not to commit to the new European Super League.

The proposal for a new European Super League has generated outrage over the past days, especially within Italian football. Serie A clubs Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan have all signed off on joining the new European Super League, which could kick off action as soon as later this year.

Tavecchio is not much of a fan of these clubs for their decision to tag along with the likes of Liverpool to accept a European Super League invite. However, as Tavecchio also detailed to Radio Marte (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), he is lauding Lazio and other clubs for not committing to this proposed competition.

The championship is important to the extent that there are not only the big teams but many other teams. Leagues do not only have 4 teams and there is also a political aspect. In my opinion, the FIGC will not agree with this, you cannot think of making an elite league and a league for the normal. Honestly, I am happy that Napoli, Roma and Lazio did not agree to join.

It remains to be seen on the major ramifications that the proposed European Super League may end up having on Serie A.
