Marchetti starts legal action against Cagliari

Corriere dello Sport is reporting that Federico Marchetti has officially started a legal procedure against his club Cagliari, in an attempt to break free from his contract.
Marchetti was played for Italy in the World Cup after Gianluigi Buffon’s injury, and afterwards declared that he wanted a transfer to a bigger club than Cagliari. The club deemed this unprofessional, and when they received no bids for him, they froze him out of the first-team squad.
In the last couple of weeks, Marchetti has been allowed to train with Cagliari, but remains unavailable for selection. As a result, the goalkeeper and his agent Giuseppe Bozzo have taken Cagliari to court, citing damages for the six months that he hasn’t been allowed to play.
Cagliari president Massimo Cellino has reacted angrily, saying: “If anyone deserves money in damages then it is me, as I had to buy another goalkeeper. Cagliari cannot be accused of bullying, as we are allowing him to train regularly and giving him the chance to fight for his place.”
It remains to be seen if a court battle ensues, because Marchetti could be sold in the January transfer window. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
