Siena: Little to celebrate after points deduction

Siena: Little to celebrate after points deduction

The Tuscans were relegated from Serie A in May and, after months of financial struggle, bankruptcy was narrowly avoided as the club agreed a deal with local banks and creditors.

But in a statement on its official website, the FIGC's disciplinary committee has confirmed a two-point penalty for Siena and a ban of two months and 20 days from club activities for president Massimo Mezzaroma.

It read: "Two penalty points to Siena to be applied in the current season, and two months and 20 days of suspension for president Massimo Mezzaroma.

"President Mezzaroma has been referred for not informing the relevant federal agencies of the withholding of income tax, of social security payments and of wages owed to players in January, February and March 2013, under the terms established by federal law."
