Serie C‘s club Pro Piacenza have endured a tough season, bringing about point deduction and forfeiting matches, but the club most recent mishap was mind-boggling as they were only able to field just seven players in a 20-0 rout at mid-table Cuneo.
Pro Piacenza’s 20-0 Serie C rout at AC Cuneo remains as an “Insult to Sport“, as indicated by Italian Football Federation (FICG) president Gabriele Gravina.
Crisis club Pro Piacenza named a seven-man startling line-up which comprises of youth-team players and a massage therapist for Sunday’s match at Cuneo’s Stadio Fratelli Paschiero, where an unavoidably ridiculous scene unfurled.
The Rossoneri’s senior squad and training staff are on strike over unpaid wages and their past three League games were forfeited as 3-0 walkovers for Pro Vercelli, Juventus II and Siena. Had they done the same thing on Sunday, they faced being tossed out of division C where they sit bottom and have just been docked eight this season.
Gravina made no conciliatory sentiments for the organisation upholding its rules – something that reached out to an eighth Pro Piacenza player not being permitted to enter the field until the 61st minute because of him not being in control of the right eligible documents – though demonstrated no craving for such embarrassing scenes to be repeated.
What happened in Cuneo is an insult to sport and its founding principles,” . “In this surreal situation, the FIGC had a duty to enforce all the rules, our responsibility is to protect the passion of the fans, healthy entrepreneurs and the credibility of our championships: the one we unfortunately witnessed will be the last farce.”
Cuneo’s triumph dramatically increased their goal count preceding the match in the league this season, which remained at 18. Striker Hicham Kanis and Edoardo Defendi scored six and five goals individually in a first half that ended 16-0, while Michele Emmausso and Francesco De Stefano completed hat-tricks amid the closing stages of the unsporting game.
A week ago, Serie C team Matera were excluded from the league subsequent to neglecting to meet fixture prerequisites in the midst of budgetary troubles of their own.
