MILAN - Serie A side Bologna have had two
more points deducted for missing wage payments, the Italian football federation said in a statement on Thursday.
The news comes as a surprise given Bologna were already
docked one point late last year for unpaid taxes and have been
sold to wealthier new owners since charges over the wage
payments were brought.
Sergio Porceddu was forced to sell the club last month after
Bologna players threatened to use labour laws to leave en masse
for free in the January transfer window if wages were not paid.
A consortium headed by the boss of coffee firm Segafredo
took over and promised to pay the players in full.
Bologna, who are likely to appeal, are now just four points
above the drop zone having been in mid-table.
