Pescara president Sebastiani vows to leave club after two cars burned

PESCARA, Italy -- Club president Daniele Sebastiani says he will leave Pescara at the end of the year after two of his cars were set on fire.

Pescara lost 6-2 at Lazio on Sunday and in the early hours of Tuesday morning Sebastiani's cars, which were parked in his driveway, were set alight.

Preliminary investigations have revealed it was arson and police are examining footage from security cameras.

Sebastiani told regional daily Il Centro: "I'm outraged, at the end of the year I'm leaving the club."

Pescara is bottom of Serie A and their only win was awarded to the team after Sassuolo fielded an ineligible player.

The city's mayor and the Italian league were among those to express their support, while the president of the Italian football federation, Carlo Tavecchio, called Sebastiani as soon as he heard the news.

"On behalf of myself and the whole of Italian football, I want to express out maximum solidarity with you for the vile act which happened," Tavecchio said in the telephone call, according to a brief statement released by the federation.

Tension started to rise in Pescara shortly before Christmas when a group of hardcore fans interrupted the team's seasonal party.

There were protests outside Pescara's stadium following Sunday's defeat in Rome.

"It's been happening for a while. Unfortunately in football, when you don't get results it's always the fault of those in charge," Sebastiani told Radio 24. "From a certain point of view, it's right that we take it, but criticism is one thing, getting to this point is another.

"Since I am tied [emotionally] to Pescara, I will only leave it to someone better than me, because if I have to leave it in the hands of scoundrels I would think again ... I won't leave Pescara in the hands of someone who will be bankrupt after six months."
