Italian players suspended for mourning mafia boss

Sixteen players from Italian amateur side San Luca have been suspended for two matches for wearing black armbands at a match in November in mourning at the death of a Calabrian Mafia boss.



Venice: Sixteen players from Italian amateur side San Luca have been suspended for two matches for wearing black armbands at a match in November in mourning at the death of a Calabrian Mafia boss.
The team, who play in Italy`s eighth tier, have also been docked three points and fined 600 euros for the gesture after the death of `Ndrangheta boss Antonio Pelle, the Italian Soccer Federation said on its website.
The federation said the players had worn the armbands because Pelle was related to a member of the club in the southern region.
