Italian Serie A club Reggina have seen penalty in the match-fixing scandal cut from minus 15 points to 11 points by the Italian Olympic Committee’s Court of Arbitration.
The reduction lifted Reggina off the bottom of the division with nine points from 15 matches.
However, the court’s decision was not enough to placate club’s president Pasquale Foti.
“I’m not satisfied because I don’t hold myself responsible, nor do I recognise the accusations that have been levelled against me and my club. Reggina are innocent,” he told www.gazzetta.it
“Reggina will definitely keep this within the realm of sport. All I will say is that there are often unjust sentences and this is one of those.”
Reggina were one of five top teams – Juvenus, Lazio, Fiorentina and Milan were the others – who were punished in the match-fixing scandal which swept through Italian football in the summer.
Juventus, who were relegated to the second division, Lazio and Fiorentina all had their points sanctions cut in October, but Milan’s eight points deficit remained unaltered.
