BY foxsports • May 31, 2011

Magistrates in Naples have recommended that former Juventus executive Luciano Moggi be sentenced to five years, eight months in prison for his role in the 2006 match-fixing scandal.

Moggi was the central figure in the scandal that resulted in Juventus being stripped of the 2005 and 2006 Serie A titles and relegated to Serie B.

Magistrates made their recommendations on Tuesday for custodial sentences which included four years for former referee designator Paolo Bergamo, four years and six months for his colleague Pierluigi Pairetto, and three years for former ref Massimo De Santis.

Also implicated are Fiorentina owners Andrea and Diego Delle Valle, Lazio president Claudio Lotito and officials from Reggina, Messina and AC Milan.

Moggi denies all charges.
