Dal Pino received 12 votes — one more than the necessary 11 — from the 20-team Italian league. Gaetano Miccichè, who resigned as president in November following an investigation into his 2018 election, was next with seven votes despite saying he had no interest in returning to the job.
One ballot remained blank. Since Miccichè’s resignation the league had two emergency leaders: Mario Cicala and Giancarlo Abete.
