‘We were not told the rules’: Mother of the murdered player defends her son’s death
“The church did not give me the rules.
I had to follow them,” said Francesco Domenico, a member of the Italian Football Federation’s disciplinary committee.
“I was not given a chance to know.
I was not told anything.”
Domenio, who was in the same parish as the slain player, said the rules did not allow him to be present for the funeral.
“They had to send a letter to me.
I have a letter that says I cannot attend the funeral.”
The letter, dated 11 March, is signed by the football federation, which is currently reviewing the disciplinary action.
It was handed over to Domenicos lawyer, Giuseppe Giuseppini, who has written to the secretary of the state of Foggia, who also has responsibility for the region.
Giuseoli has said he will be seeking compensation.
“The rules are very clear and clear,” said Giuseoppini, speaking to reporters at a news conference.
“If I want to go to a football match, I must obey the rules, I can’t say I am at home, I have to say I’m at a friend’s house.”
Giuseippini, a former Juventus defender, said he did not know what was in store for him.
“This is the first time I have been in contact with the secretary.
It’s very strange,” he said.
“We do not know when we are going to receive this letter.”
Dennici has said the letter was written to him by the Foggi.
“There was a lot of pressure to get a copy,” he told La Repubblica.
“When you are told to say you are at home or at your friend’s, they say ‘no, no, no’, so I did not ask for the rules.”
The football federation said it would “investigate the situation in full” and was reviewing the letter.
A spokesperson for the regional football federation confirmed the letter had been handed over.
The football rules state that players must be present during the funeral service, which takes place on Sunday.
“It is not permissible to take part in a funeral without permission from the bishop,” the rules read.
The rules also say that the funeral will be in the church, where the priest will be accompanied by the archbishop.
