Bologna owner Sergio Porcedda has put the club up for sale amid a financial crisis, but admits “I don't know if I'll leave.”
Deferred to the Disciplinary Commission for failing to cover unpaid wages, the Rossoblu risk a three-point penalty and even bankruptcy.
This week President Porcedda announced the club was up for sale, but now suggests there are other options.
“I don't know if this is my farewell to football. My current state of mind suggests it could be,” he said.
“At the moment I cannot say if I really will leave the club, even if I have appointed someone to help the sale.
“A series of financial operations were not concluded and we did not receive a positive response from the banks.
“In any case, the fault always has to be of whoever is in charge, so I take responsibility. I will try to emerge from this situation with my head held high.
“The future of the side is excellent, as we built something for the future with many young players.”
