Calcagno on the chaos of betting: “Gambling addiction is a generational problem”

Umberto CalcagnoPresident of the Italian Footballers’ Association and Vice-President of the International Football Federation, spoke at Radio New Point regarding the chaos of the stakes: “From the story of Fagioli and Tonali there is a first positive aspect: they cannot be left alone, they must be accompanied. Fagioli may be a good example of the re-educational function of sports institutions. Then I believe that punishment should have the same function. We are finally thinking as a system, after days of too many fingers being pointed at these kids. There have been a lot of generalizations when we talk about footballers and our world, we are in too much of a hurry to gather all the grass into a bunch. Now this can be an important starting point for doing something more. Nicolo (Faggioli, ed.) was the first to realize his mistakes. We must ask ourselves about our responsibility to this generation of children. Gambling Addiction is a big problem in the context of youth. We need to think together, starting from school and family, and then through sports. This is not just a problem for those with significant resources. This is the problem of a whole generation that has too much ease of access to certain structures.”
