Lazio midfielder Mauri calm over match-fixing trial

Lazio midfielder Stefano Mauri isn't panicking over his looming match-fixing trial.

The Biancocelesti captain face charges of sporting fraud for alleged involvement in fixing matches between Genoa, Lecce and the capital club.

"There is so much enthusiasm from the team and the fans," he told reporters.

"We are working as hard as we did last year. Winning the Coppa Italia was unforgettable, but we have to turn the page.

"I am a professional, so we'll just have to see what happens in the trial.

"I am feeling calm about it.

"I never broke the rules of this sport."
