Gattuso's Pisa promoted

Pisa have earned promotion to Serie B after a chaotic play-off against Foggia, which saw Coach Gennaro Gattuso struck by a bottle.

Gattuso’s Pisa won the first leg of the Lega Pro final 4-2 and came away with a 1-1 draw at the Stadio Zaccheria this evening.

It is their first step back into Serie B since 2009.

The match had to be suspended when objects were thrown from the stands, including a plastic bottle that struck Gattuso on the head and a pitch invasion.

In the ensuing melee, both Gattuso and Foggia Coach Roberto De Zerbi were sent off.
