The head of the Football Italian, Gianluca Di Marzio, has urged the Italian national team to remove the skirts worn by all players at international matches.
The Italian media has reported that some players wear their skirts above the knee, but the head of a leading football association said on Friday that the skirts were “unacceptable” for the country.
Di Marzioni told reporters on Thursday that the national team should immediately ban players from wearing the skirts in all competitions.
The player-specific regulations that govern the way the national teams dress have been in place for almost two decades, but Di Marzo said it was time for Italy to start acting like a European country.
“It is unacceptable for players to wear the skirt.
I am saying that this is unacceptable, as Italy is an European country,” he said.”
The way the skirts are worn is unacceptable.
It is not the style, it is the way they are worn.”
The head of Italy’s national football association, Stefano Spinelli, also said that the skirt ban was not appropriate.
“I don’t want to make a statement.
We don’t have a position on that.
But we will speak to the president about that.
It’s a personal decision for the player.
I’m sure that the players will understand that it’s a decision that has to be made,” Spinelli said.
Di Niro is expected to return to action at the World Cup in Russia on September 8.
