Roma won’t fine De Rossi

Sky Sport have reported that Roma will not fine captain and midfielder Daniele De Rossi for his conceding a penalty and sending off against Genoa, as they sometimes do in certain instances.

Rather, De Rossi will be subject to the rules of the dressing room, which are that De Rossi will put a specified sum of money into a “piggy bank”, which gets donated to charity at the end of the season.
