Catania chief backing Spinesi to come good

Catania sports chief Pietro Lo Monaco insists striker Gionatha Spinesi is "untouchable" despite his lack of goals.

"We know that Spinesi is going through a strange period, but we can't put a striker on trial when he hit 43 goals to get us to Serie A and ensure our survival last term," Lo Monaco insisted.

"He is untouchable, just ask the fans, that's why we turned down a £3m offer from Genoa."
