Roma and Lazio plus six Serie B sides have failed in their first attempt to be registered for the new season.
Italian Football Federation rules state that clubs must meet certain financial requirements before they can be officially cleared to start the new season.
The two Roman clubs plus the Serie B sides – Fiorentina, Genoa, Messina, Napoli, Palermo and Verona – have until July 25 to appeal against today’s decision and until July 29 to regulate their economical position.
Reports suggest that Roma and Verona should be able to easily resolve their problems but the four other clubs have debts to clear in order to be allowed to take part in the new campaign.
At least we can stop being concerned with Roma snatching away Davids. They won't be shopping now. Like it says, Roma won't have problems, cause Sensi will bail them out if they won't sell. But the tomato business is definitely not going well lately.
I'm wondering if anyone knows exactly how much money they (Lazio, Roma, Napoli) have to get?
What we are forgetting is that neither Roma nor Lazio are powerhouses in Europe, they just have rich benefactors. But to be honest i can understand why Lazio are suffering but where did Roma's come from?
