Ex-Juventus chiefs Moggi, Giraudo receive lifetime bans

Lifetime bans have been handed down to Italian football identities Luciano Moggi, Antonio Giraudo and Innocenzo Mazzini.

Although the ruling on the Calciopoli scandal was back in 2006, the FIGC has only today officially inflicted "a permanent ban from any position or category within the Federation."

Moggi was the director general of Juventus and Giraudo the general manager at the time of the Calciopoli scandal. Mazzini was the Vice-President of the FIGC.

"Moggi's ban is entirely in proportion with his behaviour, taking into account their intrinsic seriousness and the abhorrent consequences," read the Disciplinary Commission's statement.

"The fact others may have behaved in similar fashion, which still has to be proved, does not take away from the gravity of his ban.

"Mazzini is punished for the extraordinary gravity of his behaviour and the insult towards the prestigious position of Vice-President. He sought to alter sporting results and favour the interests of individuals."
