Moggi banned for life by Italy FA

Former Juventus director manager Luciano Moggi has been banned for life from all Italian soccer, the country’s soccer governing body said in a statement on Wednesday, Xinhua reports. Antonio Giraudo, former Juventus general manager, and Innocenzo Mazzini, former vice-president of Italian Footall Federation (FIGC), have also received lifetime bans. Although the ruling on this scandal was back in 2006, the FIGC has only on Wednesday officially inflicted “a permanent ban from any position or category within the Federation.” “Moggi’s ban is entirely in proportion with his behaviour, taking into account their intrinsic seriousness and the abhorrent consequences,” read the Disciplinary Commission’s statement.Moggi, Giraudo and Mazzini were accused of attempting to influence or pressure referees. In 2006 they were suspended for five years with the suggestion of a permanent ban.
