Serie A club Chievo has been docked three points and fined €200,000 by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) after being found guilty of false accounting.

The charges were made against Chievo president Luca Campedelli and several of his directors for deliberately inflating figures in relation to transfer dealings with Cesena.

Campedelli has been handed a three-month ban, although the FIGC prosecutor had requested a three-year suspension and 15-point deduction for Chievo.

The penalty means the Flying Donkeys sits on minus-two points in Serie A, having taken one from its opening three games this season. Lorenzo D'Anna's side travels to Roma on Sunday.
