Bari in financial difficulty

Bari have asked the club's players if the payment of their wages can be deferred in order to help alleviate financial problems.

The Puglia-based outfit were relegated on Saturday with four games of the season remaining and are in trouble both on and off the pitch.

"There has been a conversation between the President and the team, and there was an openness on the players' part to defer their wages," said Bari general manager Claudio Garzelli.

"It's undeniable that the talk of the possible entry of new investors, who will be in discussion with the club in the next few days, is linked to the need to resolve financial problems that are gnawing away at us. The talks hope to bring greater solidity and serenity for the future.

"However, we'll only see what happens after the meetings that have been planned with the parties interested in investing in Bari."
