Cagliari could be forced to play some of their home games away from their ground due to construction, report the Sardinia media. The Serie A side faced a similar situation under former president and now Leeds United co-owner Massimo Cellino, which had an affect on the club.
La Nuova Sardegna have reported Cagliari could be forced to their play games outside of Sardinia, with suggestions they may approach Bologna about using their stadium.
Current Cagliari boss Tommaso Giulini, who bought the club from the Leeds United chief, wants to expand the club’s ground, but this would mean having to play games elsewhere at the start of next season.
This has become a concern for those involved in with the club after the situation under Cellino, when Cagliari had to play their games in Trieste. At the time the Sant’Elia was unavailable to the Italian side, but their temporary move to Trieste didn’t go smoothly, and had a great impact on the club. This was labelled as the “lurking ghosts” which lived under Cellino.
Towards the end of his reign at the Sardinian club the controversial Leeds United boss came in for threats from his own fans for the way he was running Cagliari, which ultimately resulted in the Italian moving to Miami.
