Bench chaos in Mario Balotelli’s Sion

Christian Constantin, Sion’s president, has decided to address the red and white club’s results crisis, which culminated with last Saturday’s 0-4 home loss against St. Gallen, with a decidedly peculiar decision: in fact, he himself will sit, in place of Fabio Celestini, on the bench of the team whose players include Mario Balotelli. However, the unusual substitution will last one week: time to play two matches, one in the Cup and one in the league, against Lugano.

“FC Sion confirms the absence of Fabio Celestini for a period of one week,” read a club note released Monday. “In the meantime, Christian Constantin will be on the FC Sion bench for the next two matches against FC Lugano.

According to a report by ‘Ticinonline’, this would be a move aimed at stalling for a final decision on Celestini’s future: the idea would be to use this week to look for a new name for the bench, to be announced in exactly seven days.
