The Italian media are unhappy with the way Joleon Lescott treated Pescara after they claim he turned his back on the Serie A club. The former England international yesterday signed for Greek side AEK Athens following a disastrous season with Aston Villa.

Il Centro have reported on Lescott joining AEK Athens from Aston Villa, and they believe the defender has mocked Pescara in the way he’s conducted himself in recent days.

They claim Pescara were expecting Lescott to travel to Italy after the Italian club booked a medical for yesterday morning. However, Lescott didn’t arrive in the country, and instead signed for AEK Athens on a two-year deal.

Il Centro believe the salary offered to the Aston Villa flop turned the player’s head despite reports in the past week he would prefer to move to Serie A.

Pescara were promoted last season to Serie A, and the Italian media believe it was only natural he’d prefer that option. Pescara seem to be of the opinion they had some kind of indication he’d be joining them, and so there’s a little annoyance.
