Last night’s 2-1 defeat to Siena already caused huge controversy after Reggiana owner and baseball legend Mike Piazza said there was “corruption and incompetence.”

Reggiana: Serie C is corrupt!

Reggiana owner and baseball legend Mike Piazza has accused ‘a few corrupt and dirty individuals’ of eliminating his club from the Serie C playoffs.

Reggiana lost 2-1 to Siena in their playoff quarter-final on Sunday after the Tuscans were awarded a penalty in the 10th minute of injury time, despite their No 5 appearing to have been the one fouled and not vice versa.

“I was not available last night to give a comment because I had to return home with my children,” Piazza wrote on the Granata’s official website.

Reggiana approach Pirlo?

Mike Piazza’s new club Reggiana could try to coax Andrea Pirlo back from New York City FC.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pirlo is the dream addition for the side in Lega Pro.

Baseball legend Piazza bought the club this month and was in Reggio-Emilia yesterday to present his project to the town amid a rapturous reception.

Pirlo would certainly attract a great deal of interest, but the veteran Italy midfielder had said he wanted New York City FC as a lifestyle choice, so is unlikely to walk away after just one year.

Piazza to buy into Palermo?

Baseball legend Mike Piazza could be investing in Serie A side Palermo, having previously tried to buy Parma.
