Dino Meneghin, President of the Italian Basketball Federation (FIP), stated that he plans to step down upon the completion of his mandate.

“I will definitely leave, but not for the reasons mentioned lately. I have to evaluate if I can dedicate my time to being full-time President. But I have to work and I don’t know if I can devote my whole self.” said Meneghin.

At the same time he set the first candidate for his replacement “I think Carlo Recalcati can be a coach until he is 90 years old, but if he wants to, I think he is the ideal person to run the Federation.”
