Foggia point deduction, De Zerbi banned

Foggia will start next season in Serie B with a 15-point deduction, while Sassuolo boss Roberto De Zerbi has been suspended for three months.

A statement on the FIGC’s official website confirms Foggia have been punished for financial irregularities, which involved money laundering and tax evasion between 2015 and 2017.

De Zerbi will also be unable to lead out Sassuolo on matchdays until October, given he was Foggia’s Coach during the 2015-16 campaign, just weeks after the Neroverdi hired him.
