Genoa fined and Sculli banned over fans protest
Genoa has been fined ?30,000 and former player Giuseppe Sculli
was suspended for a month after last season’s match against Siena
was halted by fans.
Genoa players stripped off their shirts in a gesture of apology
to angry, flare-throwing fans as their protests forced a 45-minute
suspension of the team’s 4-1 loss to Siena on April 22.
The match only restarted following impassioned pleas to the fans
by Sculli, who also negotiated with the leader of the ultras.
However, Sculli has been banned for a month by the federation’s
disciplinary commission after he was found to have lied to the
prosecutors and to have known about the protest before the
Sculli currently plays for Lazio.
