Stefano Mauri: One of eight players who will answer charges of alleged match-fix

A statement published on figc.it said midfielder Mauri and seven other players are expected to meet the national disciplinary commission to answer to match-fixing accusations relating to Lazio's league games against Genoa and Lecce in May 2011.

All three clubs could be subject to disciplinary action for their objective liability in the alleged actions of Mauri, Massimiliano Benassi, Mario Cassano, Stefano Ferrario, Carlo Gervasoni, Omar Milanetto, Antonio Rosati and Alessandro Zamperini.

The eight players also face charges of sporting fraud for alleged involvement in one or both games.

Lazio, Genoa and Lecce could each be punished with a points deduction with the Roman outfit facing two counts of the charge - one for each game.

Mauri, now 33, played as Lazio beat Genoa 4-2 in Rome on May 14 two years ago and eight days later the midfielder featured in a victory by the same scoreline at Lecce.

Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
