At the end of the Serie A Lega Assembly held today in Milan, the president of Torino, Urbano Cairo, confirmed to the media microphones the format of Serie A with 20 teams, positioning himself against the proposal from Milan, Inter, and Juventus to reduce the number of participants to 18, even accusing them of attempting to build a 'Mini Super League'.
Here are the statements of the Torino president, as relayed via Milan News.
"The Assembly confirmed with an overwhelming majority, 16 to 4, the desire to maintain the right of agreement and the format with 20 teams. Also because if you look at the most important leagues in Europe, they have 20 teams. That's exactly what works, then in my opinion that meeting at the FIGC of the three teams (Inter, Milan, and Juventus) was not well-received, because in my opinion it is right that the League has unity, autonomy, and a veto right."
Are you concerned about the division with Inter, Milan, and Juventus? Cairo replied:
"There is no division. Let's say they had the wrong attitude. Being in an association, it is right that there is mutual respect, which in this case was lacking."
What was the atmosphere like in the assembly?
"The atmosphere was cordial, civil, without raised voices. I would say it went well. We discussed things positively. What they tried to do seemed like a Mini Super League."
