Moggi sentenced to 4 months for Baldini threats

Former Juventus executive Luciano Moggi has been given a

four-month prison sentence for threatening Roma managing director

Franco Baldini.

Baldini had been set to give evidence in the 2006 Italian

match-fixing case in June 2008 when Moggi approached him and said,

”watch your step or you’ll have problems.”

The prosecutors were seeking an eight-month sentence.

Moggi was also sentenced to five years and four months in prison

by a Naples court on Tuesday for his role in the match-fixing


At the heart of the scandal were allegations that Moggi created

a network of contacts with federation officials to influence

refereeing assignments and arrange for key players in other teams

to be booked ahead of matches with Juventus.
