Lazio’s Mauri to be banned?

The prosecutor in the latest match-fixing probe has called for Stefano Mauri to be banned for over four years, while he’s requested that Lazio and Genoa be docked points.

The Italian Football Federation are looking at claims that the results of Lazio-Genoa from May 14, 2011, and Lecce-Lazio, from May 22, 2011, were pre-arranged.

The sporting trial began today in the Italian capital and FIGC prosecutor Stefano Palazzi has called for tough punishments.

Palazzi wants Mauri to be suspended for four years and six months for his alleged involvement in the fix.

He’s also suggested that Lazio start the new season on -6 points and Genoa on -3.

Omar Milanetto, Massimiliano Benassi, Stefano Ferrario, Antonio Rosati, Carlo Gervasoni, Mario Cassano and Alessandro Zamperini are also facing possible punishments.
