Brienza 'happy' to join Bologna

Franco Brienza is excited to be back in Serie A after agreeing terms with Bologna. “This is an historic club.”

The 36-year-old was a free agent after his contract with Cesena expired, so put pen to paper on a new one-year deal.

“I am happy and was waiting for an opportunity like this,” the support striker told Tuttomercatoweb.

“I had offers from Serie B and wish to thank those clubs, but as soon as Bologna arrived it was all over. This is an important side and an historic club. They certainly need no introduction.

Cesena Coach Domenico Di Carlo says referees ‘must have courage’ after his side were denied a penalty against Napoli.

The Cavallucci Marini saw strong claims for a penalty turned down during their 3-2 defeat, when Manolo Gabbiadini appeared to foul Franco Brienza.

“That’s the eighth penalty in 10 or 11 games which we haven’t been given,” Di Carlo lamented in an interview with Sky after the match.

Di Carlo mocks Milan penalty

Cesena boss Mimmo Di Carlo mocked the late Milan penalty and believed the Sea Horses deserved a lot more.

It ended 2-0 at San Siro with Giacomo Bonaventura and a very late Giampaolo Pazzini penalty for a soft Carlos Carbonero push on Luca Antonelli.

“What foul? It looks to me as if he fell over by himself,” Di Carlo told Sky Sport Italia.

“I’ve seen much bigger penalties not awarded, but the referee decided to give this one to Milan. Never mind.

Had to be awake from the start saving from an Elseid Hysaj drive. Later rescued Inter again when pulling off two superb saves from Manuel Pucciarelli and was also alert enough to palm away a later strike from Piotr Zielinski. Solid.
