Eight Genoa fans jailed

The eight Genoa fans who suspended the club's match with Siena last season have been jailed today.

The match last April was abandoned for 40 minutes after a group of ultras ran on to the pitch demanding some of the players hand back their shirts as they were 'unworthy' of representing the club.

FIGC President Giancarlo Abete brandished the behaviour 'unacceptable' at the time, and judge Roberto Fuccigna has agreed with the Federation chief as he charged the guilty men of jail terms ranging between six and eight months.

The sentences were reduced from the initial lengths however, after it was revealed that the supporters had raised funds for flood victims in the city the previous winter.
