I don't really see the point in such a conversation, other than hoping to satisfy/please the Italian and French people who were angry and disappointed with their teams.
Precisely it. Make a public speech, accept blame but imply that you made the right choices and that it wasn't REALLY your fault, shake hands with the prez.
That's how they do it.
Maybe the Italian government can put restrictions on the Serie A clubs, that they have to put more talented Italian players on the field and keep foreign players out
Neeeeeever gonna happen. Rich, influential clubs aren't going to stop putting their star players out there, leaving the Italian second-line on the bench. Because they want to win. NOW.
They couldn't give a rat's ass about the long-run, or about the national team. They're running a business.
And the Italian government is currently run by the president of Milan, so...nope. Ain't gonna happen.
I fucking WISH it would, but no.
I don't know, I just don't think the government should spent much time on it and try to meddle with it when they probably don't really know much about it.
Sadly, that's one of the few things the government is good at...chatting about soccer and shit.
