Although UEFA banned president of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) Carlo Tavecchio for six months after racist comments, the federation has insisted that he won’t resign.

Tavecchio was banned for six months following his racist comments during a speech in July.

Despite those comments and several clubs withdrawing their support, he was still elected president of the FIGC in August, which drew the ire of Sunday Oliseh.

He still has the support of the federation, though.

“Our president does not lose his international representation. He will be present at the next two Italy games against Azerbaijan and Malta,” FIGC director-general, Michele Uva, said.

“It seems only right that we bring this whole situation back to its real dimension. All the ban means is that Tavecchio cannot put himself forward as a candidate for six months on commissions that will be renewed in two years and he won’t participate in a three-day congress in March.

“As far as we are concerned, the case is closed. Let us think about the future.”
