Bonucci facing corruption ban

Post by Lillian on Thu Jul 26, 2012 3:23 pm

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci could face a three-year ban for his role in the Scommessopoli scandal.
The Italian FA (FIGC) has announced that the centre-back will face charges of sporting fraud, with Bonucci's name among those of 44 players revealed across 13 clubs that have been indicted for their part in the match-fixing probe, with Bonucci being one of the more high-profile players.

The 25-year-old is believed to have been involved in fixing the result of matches during his spell at Bari in 2009-10.

Furthermore, Juve coach Antonio Conte could be suspended as he faces charges of failing to report two attempts of match-fixing during his time at Siena.

The Scudetto-winning trainer was questioned by the prosecution earlier this off-season, and was cleared of sporting fraud. However, Conte is now accused of being aware of attempts to fix the results of the games against Novara and Albinoleffe.

Juventus winger Simone Pepe also faces charges of failing to report attempted match-fixing activities during his stint at Udinese.

Other players who will be judged for their roles in the scandal are Marco Di Vaio, Daniele Portanova and Andrea Masiello.
