Several Bologna football players are appearing in court to answer questions over alleged misuse of handicapped parking permits.

The Italian news agency ANSA reports that captain Marco Di Vaio, goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano and midfielder Gaby Mudingayi were each questioned in the case Wednesday.

Mudingayi explained that the parking permits were provided by a disabled woman, Marilena Molinari, who helps the club's players with various off-the-pitch services, and that he often took Molinari around in the city to complete errands.

Investigators are now trying to determine if the players also took advantage of the permits without Molinari in their cars.
