Serie A clubs in tax raid

Prosecutors in Naples have launched an investigation into the tax affairs of 41 Italian football clubs by conducting a series of dawn raids.

Last Updated: 25/06/13 at 14:10 Post Comment

The Guardia di Finanza (financial police) spent Tuesday morning executing search warrants at the offices of Serie A clubs including AC Milan, Juventus, Lazio and Fiorentina.

Bari, Siena, Palermo, Pescara and Cesena were among the high-profile Serie B clubs probed while police also requisitioned paperwork from Lega Pro clubs including Gubbio and Portogruaro.

A statement published by the Procura di Napoli also confirmed several "foreign clubs" were under investigation, but the office declined to identify them.

The investigation concerns an alleged criminal conspiracy to avoid paying tax to authorities during the transfer of players.

The prosecutors seek to form a "complete reconstruction of the relationship between clubs and players who have, either directly or indirectly, been involved with football agents Alejandro Mazzoni and Alessandro Moggi".

There are currently 12 football agents, including Mazzoni and Moggi, under investigation.

The latter is the son of former Napoli and Juventus administrator Luciano Moggi, who was involved in the 2006 Calciopoli scandal.

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
