New Scandal Rocks Italian Football

Reggina must appear before a sports tribunal after being charged amidst allegations of match-fixing. Following on from the recent scandal which has rocked Italian football, Reggina have been ordered to answer charges of sporting fraud.

The charge relates to six games the Serie A side were involved in over the past two seasons, with Reggina's president Lillo Foti (pictured) having had his telephone tapped. Foti, along with three referees, two assistant referees and another official, has been charged by the Italian Football Federation's (FIGC) prosecutor Stefano Palazzi.

The matches in question are home fixtures against Brescia, Cagliari and Palermo, and away games versus Udinese, Sampdoria and Palermo.
Only last month, Foti was questioned in connection with the allegations and protested his innocence, having been accused of trying to rig the outcome of those six games.

Reggina must now wait to learn if they will be on the end of the same guilty verdicts which were recorded against Juventus, Milan, Fiorentina and Lazio.

Their league is in a mess, as is the football association with the appeals, they are too light ;)
Wherever the Italians are concerned there is always the suspecion that there is something fishy.I have grave reservations concerning the award of the penalty against Australia in the World Cup.
man.utd.singh, if it hadn't happened then, how on earth can they learn? Can they see into the future? Thats one better than me.
