Cagliari attack Roma ‘vulture’ Baldini

Roma director general Franco Baldini has been criticised by Cagliari for demanding that his team be awarded a 3-0 win for Sunday’s postponed tie between the two clubs.

The decision was taken to call the game off after Cagliari owner Massimo Cellino invited fans to the match, despite the fact that the Is Arenas has not yet been cleared for use.

“Cagliari understand the principles of Mr Baldini while not agreeing with them,” an official note on their website stated.

“That’s because he is trying to take advantage of someone else’s misfortune. If that was the case, a man of such principles, would be like a vulture.

“Despite Baldini’s stance, we know that he doesn’t represent the sporting spirit of the Romans, who we remain close friends of.”

Roma are expected to be handed a 3-0 win by the sporting judge. Cagliari could also have points docked as an additional penalty.
