Stefano Mauri's lawyer has insisted that the Lazio player is entirely innocent of match-fixing after the FIGC confirmed he will face charges.
He is also cited as having violated Article 1 paragraph 1 of the Code of Sports Justice, the principles of loyalty, fairness and integrity, and Article 6 paragraph 1, prohibition of betting.
However, his legal representative has claimed that these allegations are false.
“Compared to the findings of the prosecutor in Cremona [last year] I do not think there are any new elements,” Mr. Melandri told Corriere dello Sport.
“But if we have to prove [his innocence] again, we will do so.
“If the facts are those of a year ago [when Mauri was arrested but released without charge] we have already explained ourselves.”
