ROME (AP) – Former Juventus executive Luciano Moggi and two others have been banned for life from Italian football for their role in a 2006 match-fixing scandal.
The ban was decided on Wednesday by the Italian football federation's national disciplinary commission, and also applies to fellow former Juventus executive Antonio Giraudo and Innocenzo Mazzini, a former official at the federation. The three had previously been banned for five years.
In separate criminal proceedings, Moggi is facing trial in Naples on charges of criminal association aimed at committing sports fraud. Fellow former Juve executive Giraudo already received a three-year-sentence from the Naples court.
The scandal saw Juventus stripped of the 2004-2005 and 2005-06 Serie A titles.
