Bologna players 'reject training plan'

Bologna's players have reportedly taken a stand against their club's plan to take them into a four-day training camp in Rome by refusing to leave and instead inviting the fans to see them hard at work.

Stefano Pioli is urging his players to work hard.
Stefano Pioli is urging his players to work hard.

A 3-0 defeat to Fiorentina at the weekend left the Serie A club just one place off the foot of the table with 12 points from 16 games, and led to club president Albano Guaraldi ordering a training camp in the capital to prepare for Sunday's clash with Genoa.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the squad refused to board the bus waiting for them at the end of training on Monday, instead demanding that the club open the gates to their training facilities in Casteldebole for the remainder of the week. Rather than escaping the fans and their ire, they instead want to be confronted with them every day.

That way, the players will see how unhappy the club's supporters are while getting the chance to show them how hard they are working on turning their fortunes around.

"There's no doubt there is a difference in quality between the two clubs, but we should certainly have done better," coach Stefano Pioli had said after Sunday's heavy defeat in Florence.

"The only way out of this is by staying silent and working hard. I'm asking my players for a reaction, which we need now more than ever."

Pioli's own future may be dependent on Sunday's clash with Genoa at the Stadio Dall'Ara. Defeat could see the former Palermo and Parma coach relieved of his duties after just over two years at the helm.
