Bologna coach Malesani pleads for investors to come forward

Bologna coach Alberto Malesani has pleaded for new investors to rescue the club after victory over Chievo Verona.

Malesani turned on the club owners for making the situation so difficult for his squad.

He rapped: "As I have already said, I won't bite the hand that feeds me. I hope (Sergio) Porcedda can emerge from this situation with his head held high.

"I liked this project from the start and have faith, but someone now has to get their wallet out, because we can't go on like this.

"Someone has to help from the authorities too, as there are €12m locked down from pay-per-view television rights and with an advance we could go on until February.

"We cannot end the club this way. I can say that if the wages situation isn't sorted out soon, then the players will take legal action.

"The squad is united and will all work together, just as we are now. They are professionals and prove it every week."
