Italian Football Federation ban former Parma executives Tommaso Ghirardi, Pietro Leonardi for five years

Tommaso Ghirardi was owner of Parma between 2007 and 2014, when he sold up to businessman Rezart Taci, while Leonardi was sporting director until March last year.
Parma’s debts spiralled to beyond €200million during Ghirardi’s time in charge, prompting the club to be sold on for €1, but they remained in financial turmoil and were ultimately relegated to Serie D.

The FIGC’s Federal National Court has opted to ban Ghirardi and Leonardi for the same length of time, as well as fine each man €150,000, while former director Silvia Serena was given a four-month ban and €4,000 fine.
