Empoli rule out sale for rebel Pratali

Empoli general manager Massimiliano Cappellini has warned clubs off contract rebel Francesco Pratali.

The defender, who has been linked with Lazio and Fiorentina, has refused to join in preseason training in recent weeks, but Empoli insist he won't be sold.

"Pratali is not on the market and will remain with Empoli," said Cappellini. "When he acknowledges that he has made an error with his behaviour, he will be welcomed back to the squad."
