Marchini agent slams Cagliari president Cellino

The agent of Cagliari midfielder Davide Marchini has slammed president Massimo Cellino for his mocking comments during the week.

Marchini has levelled serious accusations at the club, claiming that teammate Pasquale Foggia had him attacked and that he was banned him from training as a form of "bullying".

Cagliari chief Cellino responded by blasting Marchini for an "unprofessional attitude" and insists that he was never told about the alleged attack, but Lorenzo Marronaro gives a different view.

"It's not true that Marchini wasn't going to training," he stated.

"The player was prevented from coming to training on a good three occasions and he had to call the police to get an official record of the situation.

"I have never managed to discuss the problem with Cellino, only with sporting director Nicola Salerno, but a President like Cellino seems to be a dictator.

"I'm really expecting Cellino to say that Marchini is no longer a Cagliari player. He has a contract until 2010, but we want to get him away from the club and help him to play again.

"I don't know what the club's intentions are, but a meeting has never been possible.

"In the media there hasn't been any criticism of the club and yet he isn't the first employee to have trouble with Cellino."
