Giampaolo: 'No Milan short-cuts'

Marco Giampaolo is not concerned after Milan’s 0-0 draw with Serie C side Cesena. “I always said it’d take time, I am not looking for short-cuts.”

The Rossoneri had practically the same line-up as last season in their final friendly of the summer.

“Clearly we can’t be very sharp right now, but we took that into account,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

Milan disappoint in Cesena

Leo Duarte made his Milan debut off the bench, but the Rossoneri played out a disappointing 0-0 draw with Serie C side Cesena.

Marco Giampaolo again used Suso as a trequartista, this time behind Samu Castillejo and Krzysztof Piatek, as Rafael Leao was carrying a slight injury. Ismael Bennacer and Rade Krunic didn’t make the trip, while Lucas Paqueta was on the bench.

Despite the summer friendly status, Cesena were quite aggressive in their tackling and pressing game, seeing a goal disallowed for Emanuele Valeri’s offside position.

Chievo three-point penalty confirmed

Chievo’s three-point penalty has been confirmed in the current Serie A season after separate appeals to reduce or increase it.

The penalty was inflicted over the summer for false accounting, as Chievo are accused of trading players with Cesena – now bankrupt – at vastly inflated prices to help balance the books.

Chievo had appealed to have the punishment reduced, while Crotone put forward their own request to increase it.

Today the Corte Federale d’Appello ruled that the three-point deduction would remain.

Cassano joins Virtus Entella

Antonio Cassano will start training with Virtus Entella from Monday, but the club isn’t sure if it’s in Serie B or Serie C.

Entella announced the move via Twitter today and there will be “no contractual obligation” as of yet.

His first training session will be open to the public and crowds are expected to attend.

Cassano has been a free agent hovering between retirement and the continuation of his career since January 2017, when Sampdoria terminated his contract early.

Serie B appeal to Government

An appeal from five clubs has been sent to the Italian Government in a bid to resolve the chaos around Serie B, but Virtus Entella wouldn’t sign it.

The situation is reaching critical point after a series of conflicting and contradictory legal rulings.

This chaos erupted over the summer when Avellino, Bari and Cesena went bankrupt, but rather than replace them with sides from Serie C, the FIGC and Lega Serie B opted to simply reduce the division to 19 clubs.

Crotone: 'Chievo penalty ridiculous'

Crotone President Gianni Vrenna called the three-point penalty to Chievo for false accounting “ridiculous. It’s almost as if they planned the timing too.”

The Calabrese club appealed to have Chievo’s penalty imposed from last season, which would’ve allowed them to take the place of the Flying Donkeys in the top flight.

Official: Chievo risk 15 point deduction

The FIGC’s prosecutor has officially requested that Chievo be deducted 15 points for alleged false accounting.

The Flying Donkeys are accused of trading players with Cesena, who later went bankrupt, creating “fictitious profits” of €25m to allow them to continue to register for Serie A.

The first trial saw Cesena deducted 15 points, but a procedural error meant the charges against the Veronese club had to be resubmitted.
