The FIGC have released a brief statement this evening where they have claimed that Rossi acted against their sporting rules ahead of the League game which they won 1-0.

"Coach Delio Rossi has been charged with trying to ask, without success, Lazio President Lotito to start talks with Lecce directors in a bid to affect the technical performance of the squad ahead of a match on April 30, 2006," a FIGC note read.

It's reported the Federation acted after they received phone tap evidence which was being gathered as part of an investigation into threats made towards unpopular Biancocelesti chief Lotito.
