Serie A Bologna President 'Regrets' Buying Club After Fans Staged Protests During Game

Serie A Bologna President Albano Guaraldi "has put the club up for sale" and said he "regrets" buying the side in the first place, according to FOOTBALL ITALIA. The patron "was deeply hurt after fans staged protests during the 2-2 draw with Sampdoria and expressed his intention to walk away." Guaraldi: "If I went back, I probably wouldn’t make the same decision to buy a majority stake in the club." Guaraldi first took over Bologna in April '11 and has just more than 50% of the shares. There "have been reports of investors from China willing to take over at Bologna" (FOOTBALL ITALIA, 9/10).
