Juventus originally announced that they planned to appeal the punishment in the Italian civil courts, an action that would have brought further punishment to the clubs and the FIGC by FIFA , as FIFA has historically taken a dim view to government involvement in football administration. On 26 October , the second appeal reduced Lazio's penalty to three points, Juventus's reduced to nine points and Fiorentina's reduced to 15 points.

Milan were unsuccessful and were still faced with an eight-point deduction. The scandal also drew attention to many potential conflicts of interest within Italian football. In addition to allegations of corruption and sporting fraud by owners, managers, players, referees and league officials, the host of Italy's most popular football show, Aldo Biscardi, resigned amid allegations that he collaborated with Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi to boost the club's image on television.

In all, magistrates in Naples formally investigated 41 people and looked into 19 Serie A matches from the —05 season and 14 Serie A matches from the —06 season. Prosecutors in Turin examined the Juventus chairman Antonio Giraudo over transfers, suspected falsified accounts and tax evasion. Prosecutors in Parma investigated national team goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon , Enzo Maresca , Antonio Chimenti and Mark Iuliano for suspected gambling on Serie A matches,  but all cleared in the same year.
After the first penalties were handed out, more teams were looked at for possible links to the scandal. Juventus's entire board of directors resigned on 11 May, while Moggi resigned shortly after Juventus won the Serie A championship on 14 May. Various punishments were handed out to the following individuals: In April , the Italian daily La Repubblica disclosed some new details about the Calciopoli affair, as Naples prosecutors were able to find out a series of telephone calls through foreign SIM cards between Moggi, Bergamo, Pairetto and several referees.
Since the conversations were through foreign SIM cards, the Italian police could not tap them, so they could only try to match together phone numbers, numbers called and places. Some SIM cards were Swiss and registered to the store owner's family, while the others came from an anonymous person in Liechtenstein. The prosecutors also discovered the use of a Slovenian SIM card. According to this investigation, Paparesta also used the Swiss SIM card for personal use and this helped the prosecutors to discover this secret communication channel.
Apparently, Moggi had five foreign SIM cards, two of which had been used to communicate with Bergamo and Pairetto, whereas the others had supposed to have been used to communicate with the referees and Fabiani. Although containing nothing truly compromising, in the recording Moggi and Marcello Lippi former coach of Juventus and coach of the Italian national team at the time clearly insulted Inter's president Massimo Moratti and trainer Roberto Mancini , as Lippi stated that Mancini deserves a lesson while Moggi answered that Mancini would have such a lesson.

On 26 April , La Repubblica ' s website published about two hundred audio files of the wiretappings, some published one year before in the written form and some never published. This allowed readers to perceive tones and forms of the conversations as well.
Milan, originally ejected from the —07 Champions League due to the scandal, went on to win the competition on 23 May Bergamo stated that, on suspicion of being tapped, he used that SIM card only to communicate with Pairetto and that, after the exhaustion of the credit, he did not use the SIM card anymore. During the Calciopoli trial in Naples, the legal team of Luciano Moggi released a number of wiretapping showing that Milan and Inter had been involved too in the Serie A scandal during and Such wiretappings were involving Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani, Inter owner Massimo Moratti, then-Inter chairman Giacinto Facchetti and former referee designators Paolo Bergamo and Pierluigi Pairetto, as well as many others Italian clubs not previously mentioned in the scandal.
However, the sentence stated that no Article 6 about match-fixing or attempted match-fixing violations were found within the intercepted calls and the season was fair and legitimate. Furthermore, no requests for specific referees, no demands for favours and no conversations between Juventus directors and referees themselves were found. In July , FIGC Chief investigator Stefano Palazzi alleged in his report that, in addition to Luciano Moggi, the following club officials have also violated the Code of Sporting Justice by contacting referee designators in illegal manners.
According to Palazzi's findings, the clubs represented by the above people had to be punished during the Calciopoli trial, but no court could confirm these allegations since all facts are covered by the statute of limitation.

However, he also hinted that Inter should give away the Serie A scudetto and leave it unassigned on the basis of ethics. On 8 November , Naples court issued the first conclusion of the criminal case against Luciano Moggi and the other football personalities involved, sentencing him to jail for five years and four months. In December , Moggi was given a sentence of two years and four months for being found guilty of conspiring to commit a crime, but the earlier charge of sporting fraud passed the statute of limitations.
On 23 March , in its final resolution the Supreme Court ruled that Moggi was acquitted of "some individual charges for sporting fraud, but not from being the 'promoter' of the 'criminal conspiracy' that culminated in Calciopoli ". Nevertheless, the remaining charges of Moggi were cancelled without a new trial due to the statute of limitations.
On 9 September , the Supreme Court released a page document that explained its final ruling of the case.

Despite that Moggi's remaining charges were cancelled without a new trial due to statute of limitations,  the court made clear that Moggi's unwarranted activities incurred significant damage to Italian football not only in sporting, but also in economic terms. In the document, the court confirmed that Moggi was actively involved in the sporting fraud which was intended to favor Juventus and increase his own personal benefits.

Or, perhaps, the FA had been rescued, saved from its own mundane, conservative decision-making. Buried at the end of its news release: Not originally, at least. That had already been done, albeit for a different role.
Southgate was the unders coach. He agreed to take the interim gig in September due to the desperation and urgency of the situation. He had procured his first managerial job at the age of 35, immediately following his retirement as a player, without the necessary coaching licenses. Three years and a relegation later, he was sacked. But over seven weeks, three World Cup qualifiers and a friendly, Southgate impressed. His Three Lions went unbeaten.
So I thought it was worth having a go for. The FA thought so, too. In part for lack of a better alternative, it removed the interim tag and handed Southgate a four-year contract. Twenty months later, it looks like one of the best decisions the oft-derided federation has ever made. Southgate would be the first to give credit to his players. But make no mistake: He has overhauled the national team in so many ways. Twitter Get daily updates directly to your inbox Subscribe See our privacy notice.
