And The Worst Players Are…?

The Serie A’s Golden Bin nominations have been revealed and i am quite surprised to see who made the list. Once again Juventus dominates the list with Felipe Melo ( who i thoroughly agree should be on the list) and Milos Krasic making the cut.

Others who made the list include Luca Toni, Amauri, Diego Milito, Diego Forlan, Mauro Zarate, Adrian Mutu, Santiago Silva of Fiorentina and Eduardo from Genoa. So just what does it take to make it to this infamous list?

Former Juventus Director Moggi Gets 5 Years For Involvement In Calciopoli Scandal

The curtains were finally drawn on the Calciopoli trial yesterday when chief suspect Luciano Moggi was found guilty of sporting fraud and sentenced to 5 years and 4 months in prison.

The 74 year old was director of Juventus during the infamous 2005/2006 season when the club was demoted to Serie B for its involvement in match fixing scandals that saw them win the league that season.

Ironically, Moggi will not serve any of his sentence in an actual prison cell as this being a first-degree sentence, Italian laws give him the opportunity to contest the judgement through its many appeal levels.
