Italian soccer under investigation again thumbnail

Italian soccer is once more finding itself under investigation as another scandal has came to light. In 2006 Italian football ruined their reputation in the world of soccer as several individuals were accused of getting favours to favour their side, even though no one has been found guilty yet. That scandal was named Calciopoli by the Italians. In that scandal several Serie A sides were found guilty and a few Serie B sides.

This time the scandal includes Serie B sides and Lega Pro sides, up to now no Serie A club has been affected by the scandal. It appears that certain results were fixed so that punters could win their bets. This scandal involves several high profile players such as former Italy striker Giuseppe Signori. It appears that Signori has an addiction for betting and bets on anything. He has been arrested as he is considered to be involved in this betting scandal. The Italian media is referring to this scandal as Scommessopoli. This latest scandal definitely came at a bad time as Italian soccer started to recover from the last scandal thanks to Inter’s Champions League victory last season.
