Serie B playouts back on?

Serie B has been thrown back into chaos after a court blocked the League’s decision to cancel relegation playouts. 

Foggia had appealed to have their six-point deduction lifted following Palermo’s demotion for financial irregularities.

CONI appeals court chief Franco Frattini then ruled last week that the original verdict would stand, resulting in the Apulians’ relegation to Serie C.

Foggia lose Serie B appeal

Foggia are set to start next season in Serie C after they lost their appeal for a six-point deduction to be lifted.

Foggia had sent the appeal following Palermo’s demotion for financial irregularities.

However, CONI appeals court chief Franco Frattini ruled on Friday that the original verdict would stand.

Consequently, there will be no need for playouts, with the Rossoneri finishing a point behind Salernitana in 16th place.

Serie B: Foggia players in bomb attacks

Serie B side Foggia are in shock after explosive devices were used to intimidate players Pietro Iemmello, Massimo Busellato and patron Franco Sannella.

The timing of the incidents suggests it was an act of intimidation from the ultras following Saturday’s local derby defeat to Lecce, which saw them slide into the relegation zone.

Club patrons Fedele and Franco Sannella own the Tamma pasta factory, which had windows blown out by an improvised explosive device detonated outside last night.

De Zerbi denies extortion claims

Sassuolo tactician Roberto De Zerbi has strongly rejected allegations he was pressured by the local Mafia into signing two players for Foggia.

The club was in Lega Pro with De Zerbi from 2014-16 and a statement from the prosecutor of the Bari Tribunal Francesco Agnino claims they signed two players “albeit knowing they had no significant sporting talent.”

The players were Antonio Bruno, son of former clan boss Rodolfo, and Luca Pompilio, who was loaned to Melfi and still plays there.
