Siena President Massimo Mezzaroma has resigned to “help the club’s sale” as bankruptcy looms.
The Serie B side risks not being able to register for the 2014-15 campaign due to on-going financial problems.
This evening President Mezzaroma tended his resignation, as “I do not want to be an obstacle to the sale of AC Siena and instead assure my utmost effort to aid the passage of the club to someone who can guarantee its continuation.”
The Tuscans had been in Serie A from 2003 to 2010, then again from 2011 to 2013.
Siena suffered the effects of the bankruptcy of their main sponsors, the Banca Montepaschi di Siena, in a huge financial scandal.
