More Bari plea bargains

Paulo Vitor Barreto, Giovanni Marchese and Davide Lanzafame have taken plea bargains in the latest betting scandal.

The players negotiated with public prosecutors in the trial for alleged match-fixing in Bari-Treviso (May 2008) and Salernitana-Bari (May 2009).

Their club Bari already took a plea bargain to start the next season with a one-point deduction.

Barreto and Marchese both saw their plea bargains of three months and 10 day bans accepted for failing to alert authorities to a potential fix.

Lanzafame’s ban is one year and four months, as he was charged with sporting fraud, and fined €40,000.

The trial continues with former Bari goalkeeper Jean-Francois Gillet – now at Torino – facing a possible four-year ban.
