Pancalli has no regrets

Luca Pancalli has declared that he has no regrets as he prepares to step down from his role at the helm of the Federation.

The Extraordinary Commissioner, who was appointed in place of Guido Rossi in September, will end his time at the head of the FIGC on Monday when the election for the new President is scheduled to take place in Rome.

The FIGC confirmed that the only candidate would be current vice-President Giancarlo Abete, as a new permanent chief is needed if Italy hope to host the Euro 2012 games.

"I have no regrets, my legacy is in the work that has been done so far," said Pancalli on Wednesday. "We mustn’t forget that we issued a reformed statute and approved a new regulation for referees and agents, as well as a new sporting justice code.

"We also worked hard to prepare all the documentation needed to present our bid in the hope of hosting the 2012 tournament," added the Commissioner.

"I hope that my way of working and the importance of dialogue with all parties will be remembered. Abete the new President? There is only one candidate and I think this is positive. It means that the world of football is eager to put the past behind its shoulders," concluded Pancalli.
