Roma have been punished with a 3-0 defeat for fielding an ineligible player against Hellas Verona in their Serie A opener on Saturday.

Lega Serie A announced on Tuesday that Roma used a player over the age of 22 who had not been registered on their 25-man list with the league.

Amadou Diawara, who turned 23 in July, was mistakenly added to the Under-22 portion of the Giallorossi’s team list, which means he was not eligible to be fielded in last weekend’s clash due to the error.

The game at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi finished goalless but Roma will return to zero points for the season following their sanction.

The club’s general secretary, Pantaleo Longo, has already submitted his resignation to Roma due to the error.

Verona head coach Ivan Juric was fined €5,000 for giving his team instructions from the stands while serving a touchline ban.
