MILAN - Serie A strugglers Bologna were
put up for sale by their owners on Tuesday after missed wage
payments and other financial problems prompted an Italian football federation probe which could lead to a points deduction.
Bologna said in a statement that owners Sergio Porcedda and
Alessandro Menarini had jointly agreed to ask a third party to
find possible buyers for all the shares in the club.
Porcedda has come under fire from fans over his handling of
club affairs after the federation announced its investigation
Similar cases have led to points deductions in the past but
Bologna hope a quick sale will swing the decision in their
favour, along with the fact that a points loss would hurt
players already suffering from missing wage payments.
Bologna are 16th in the 20-team league, with 14 points from
