MILAN - Serie A side Bologna suffered a
new blow on Friday when the president who looked to have saved
their immediate future unexpectedly quit after clashing with
other members of a new controlling consortium.
Massimo Zanetti, a coffee magnate, had helped salvage
Bologna last month when his consortium bought the club from
previous owners who had struggled to pay wages and taxes.
Bologna were deducted a total of three points for the
payments problems and dropped down to 16th but the future had
looked rosier with Zanetti in charge until the latest
"It is with deep regret that... I am forced to resign as
president and from the board of our glorious club," Zanetti said
in a statement.
Media reports said a disagreement over a choice of chief
executive had caused the resignation but that the remaining
members of the consortium would continue to run the club.
