Lazio Captain Banned Six Months for Match-Fixing

MOST COMMENTED

Lazio captain Stefano Mauri has been banned for six months following the Italian soccer dederation’s latest match-fixing probe. The 33-year-old was found guilty of failing to report that the results of Lazio-Genoa on May 14, 2011, and Lecce-Lazio on May 22, 2011, were pre-arranged.

Prosecutor Stefano Palazzi had called on the Italy international to be suspended for four years and six months. He had also called for a point-deduction at the start of next season for Lazio, but this was not granted, either. Lazio instead escaped with a $53,000 fine.

“I am happy that Lazio will not have to start the season with a points deduction,” a statement read on Mauri’s official website. “But this conviction, for failing to report an incident, seems an injustice. I am confident in the next steps of the proceedings to leave this nasty episode behind me. Even in this situation I will fight as a captain…my goal is to take to the field with my teammates as soon as possible."
