Moggi Sentenced in GEA World Transfer Scandal

moggi

An Italian court convicted former Juventus GM Luciano Moggi of corruption in the GEA World transfer scandal.  He faces an 18-month prison sentence, which may be reduced or nullified on appeal.

Moggi used violence and threats to coerce players into signing with the GEA World management agency, controlled by his son Alessandro.  The agency would then force players to sign with specific clubs, presumably to benefit Juventus.

The scandal is distinct from Moggi’s involvement in the 2006 Calciopoli match-fixing scandal.  He is currently serving a five-year ban from Italian football for that, and faces a separate criminal trial.

Classy guy.
