The 2005-06 Serie A season will ultimately be remembered for one thing: Calciopoli. The investigation exposed a web of contacts and undue influence, with Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi sitting at the centre of it.
Calciopoli only came to light in May 2006, at a time when Juve should have been celebrating the Scudetto. Instead they were relegated to Serie B and had two titles stripped from their record, with the fallout from that decision still causing controversy today.
Milan, Lazio, Fiorentina and Reggina were all implicated as well, and had to contend with points deductions and European bans in the following season. A number of administrators and referees were banned from football too, some for life.
On the pitch, though, it was a fascinating season. Luca Toni hit a landmark number of goals, Livorno threatened to break into Serie A’s upper echelons and Luis Figo, one of the greatest players of his generation, came to the peninsula. Meanwhile, Italy stood on the brink of World Cup glory.
