Serie A clubs Lazio and Genoa implicated in match-fixing allegations
Italian football federation (FIGC) has released a statement that says the Serie A clubs Lazio, Genoa, lower league side Lecce and eight more players are alleged to have been involved in match fixing in the 2010/11 season.
They have been reported to the disciplinary tribunal and the hearing is set to take place on July 24 at Cremona. Lazio’s final two matches of the 2010/11 season, when they beat Genoa at home and Lecce away, are under scanner.
The players reported were Stefano Mauri (Lazio), Mario Cassano and Carlo Gervason (Piacenza), Alessandro Zamperini (Fidene), Omar Milanetto (Genoa), and Massimiliano Benassi, Stefano Ferrario and Antonio Rosati (Lecce).
Cremona prosecutor Roberto Di Martino said: “There is an absolute super abundance of evidence about the Lecce-Lazio match. Gamblers have appeared to win some two million euros on the game and paid 600,000 euros to bribe the players.”
