Mattia Destro's late goal ensured Bologna made a winning start to the season by beating Serie A debutants Crotone 1-0 at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara.

Bologna deserved their victory and it was one-way traffic for much of the game as the Serie B play-off winners struggled to adjust to the step up to the top flight.

Summer signing Ladislav Krejci and Saphir Taider saw shots hit a post while Bologna twice had the ball in the net through Destro and Krejci only to be denied on each occasion by an offside...

Crotone keen to sign Liverpool forward Mario Balotelli - club president Vrenna

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti says Mario Balotelli's behaviour has improved significantly despite a poor season at AC Milan.

Serie A club Crotone's president Raffaele Vrenna says he has made an approach for Mario Balotelli to the Liverpool forward's agent.

Crotone are preparing for their first ever season in Italy's top flight following promotion last season and Vrenna wants Balotelli, 25, to spearhead their attack, saying the move would be mutually beneficial.

"I've got to admit that I have called his agent Mino Raiola to talk about Balotelli," Vrenna told Gazzamercato.it. "Crotone has the ideal surroundings for a young...

Serie A club Crotone name Davide Nicola as new head coach

Former Bari boss Davide Nicola has taken charge at Crotone.

Davide Nicola will lead Crotone into the first Serie A campaign in their history after being named head coach of the promoted club.

The Calabrians finished second behind Cagliari in Serie B, with their Croatian boss Ivan Juric attracting attention from the likes of Leeds by upsetting the odds in the second tier.

Juric is now free to join Genoa, who have been linked with his services since Gian Piero Gasperini moved to Atalanta earlier this month, while former Bari coach Nicola takes over at the...

Mario Balotelli offered way out of Liverpool by newly promoted Crotone

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Shaka Hislop react to Italy's 30-man Euro roster, which has some notable omissions.

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has been urged to join Serie A new boys Crotone next season by the club's president to get his career back on track.

Crotone were promoted to Serie A this season and Raffaele Vrenna believes his club, from Italy's Calabria region, would be just the right place for Balotelli to rediscover his best form.

"I was asked recently about a player who needs to get back to his best and I believe that we could get Balotelli back to his best," Vrenna said in Gazzetta dello...
