View from a Rhino House: “it’s a game of 2 halves”

In the (always entertaining) off-pitch world of Italian soccer, the largely unsuccessful Serie A team Bologna have suspended four members of the club staff after they forgot to collect their shiny new Brazilian player, Ibson, from the airport, Italian newspapers reported yesterday.

Club president Albano Guaraldi was understandably pissed after the club’s newest would-be saviour arrived on Sunday, only to find there was nobody to greet him or pick up him.

Bologna are 17th in Serie A with 18 points, one point & just one place above the relegation zone.

Former Porto & Spartak Moscow midfielder Ibson, has joined Bologna from the famous (& successful) Brazilian club Corinthians; he was apparently not amused.

Own goal or the early bath?
