Viviano 'not paid in months'

Italy goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano “has not been paid in months” and ex-Bologna Coach Franco Colomba adds to those complaining.

President Sergio Porcedda risks meltdown and the club could be docked points after it emerged the May and June wages had still not been paid.

Former owners the Menarini family claim they still haven't been paid for when Porcedda bought out the side in the summer and now current stars are getting itchy feet.

“A January departure is a possibility, but I want to hope that Porcedda can resolve this situation,” said Viviano's agent, Renzo Contratto.

“The overall situation of my client is that of any player who has not been paid in months. On top of that, Emiliano has an old contract that is certainly not equal to his worth, so clearly this is a doubly complex situation.”

Viviano is co-owned by Inter and it's widely believed he will return to San Siro in the summer, but with Bologna's problems even a January switch is not to be ruled out.

Meanwhile, President Porcedda has also been criticised by Colomba, the Coach he fired a couple of days before the season kicked off.

“I am in the same situation as everyone else,” said the boss. “I could say many things, but it would be too much.”
