2011/12 Italian Serie A season kick-off delayed through confirmed strike

August 26, 2011 By Angela Asante
There was good news for fans of La Liga on Thursday afternoon as the strike got called off. However, the same cannot be said about Serie A football.
They’ll have to wait a bit longer before tuning into their favorite channels for live or delayed 2011/12 Serie A matches. This is because no agreement has been reached between the AIC (the players’ union) and the Lega (the clubs’ union).

The issue is about contractual terms. Clubs have been accused of forcing their players to quit in the last year of their contracts but the Lega also have an accusation against the AIC.

As the BBC reported, it has been understood that clubs want footballers to submit to a new tax policy which will see high earners pay money to the Italian government.

“We tried right up until the end, but all the attempts were in vain,” said Damiano Tommasi, president of the Italian players’ association.

According to the BBC, Damiano Tommasi proposed for a temporary contract to be signed. However, his proposal has been rejected and the start of the 2011/12 Serie A season in Italy is yet to be announced.

President Damiano Tommasi subsequently believes that "it could take months and not 15 days" to solve the situation.
