Fourth division club fined

icon sadboss16 January ~ The president of Nuovo Campobasso, a fourth division club in Italy, took to the stadium's PA system to shout abuse at a referee during a game. Ferruccio Capone was angered by the official's decision to award a second yellow card to one of his players towards the end of their 2-2 draw with Arzanese. In videos of the incident Capone can clearly be heard verbally abusing Geoviani di Grosseto and the club was later fined €10,000 by the Italian Court of League Professionals for his outburst.
