Hellas Verona president Setti: Pecchia rejected Newcastle offer to join us

Hellas Verona president Maurizio Setti has revealed coach Fabio Pecchia was the subject of interest from Newcastle United.

Setti is under pressure to stand by Pecchia.

But he says: “I won't sack Pecchia because I have a head.

“He turned down Newcastle to come here, the group is behind him and we're playing to stay up.

Giampaolo Pazzini? He was never a problem, the Coach explained that things would be different in Serie A."
