Mauri banned for six months

The Italian Football Federation’s disciplinary commission has banned Lazio’s Stefano Mauri for six months following their latest betting probe.

The capital captain was placed under investigation amidst claims that the results of Lazio-Genoa from May 14, 2011, and Lecce-Lazio, from May 22, 2011, were pre-arranged.

FIGC prosecutor Stefano Palazzi had called for the Italian international to be suspended for four years and six months for his alleged involvement in the fix.

Palazzi had also asked for Lazio, Genoa and Lecce to be handed point deductions going into the 2013-14 campaign.

That has not happened though, with Lazio just picking up a €40,000 fine instead.

Stefano Ferrario was also handed a six-month stop, Carlo Gervasoni two months, while Mario Cassano was give a four-month penalty. Alessandro Zamperini has been suspended for two years.

Omar Milanetto, Massimiliano Benassi and Antonio Rosati were cleared of any wrongdoing.
