Giancarlo Abete has been re-elected president of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) for the next four years.

'Repay your trust'
The 58-year-old was elected for the first time in 2007. "Thank you for the faith you have put in me," said the former FIGC vice-president to the assembly in Rome. "I hope I can repay you with hard work and results. There is a willingness to work together as an association, with a view to restructuring the organisation. I also hope to repay your trust by being totally committed to tackling the challenges that face us." Abete started working in the FIGC technical department in 1988.
