Inquiry into Bianchi 'fan attack' Wednesday 7 October, 2009
An inquiry has been launched after Rolando Bianchi confronted an angry fan when scoring his goal for Torino on Monday.
The former Manchester City striker scored a 94th-minute equaliser against Ancona at Turin’s Stadio Olimpico in the closing fixture of Week 8.
He then jumped over the advertising boards and confronted an angry supporter in the stands, exchanging words and shoves before he was hauled away by teammates.
“The Disciplinary Commission is considering the incident with Torino forward Rolando Bianchi, when he leapt over the barriers and confronted a fan who had insulted him,” read a statement.
“The opening of this inquiry could bring Bianchi to testify and explain his behaviour.”
Bianchi is currently top scorer of Serie B with seven goals, but could be given a heavy fine or even a suspension.
The striker and Coach Stefano Colantuono have already apologised to the supporter and invited him to a Torino training session.
