Lazio skipper among eight to face match-fixing charges

Lazio captain Stefano Mauri is one of eight players who will answer charges of alleged match-fixing issued by Italian Football Federation (FIGC) prosecutors today.

A statement published on figc.it said midfielder Mauri and seven other players are expected to meet the national disciplinary commission to answer to match-fixing accusations relating to Lazio's league games against Genoa and Lecce in May 2011.

All three clubs could be subject to disciplinary action for their objective liability in the alleged actions of Mauri, Massimiliano Benassi, Mario Cassano, Stefano Ferrario, Carlo Gervasoni, Omar Milanetto, Antonio Rosati and Alessandro Zamperini.
