Fabrizio Miccoli’s appeal has reportedly been rejected and the Supreme Court has confirmed the former Palermo player’s sentence of three years and six months for extortion.

Sky Sport Italia reports the former attacking midfielder’s sentence by the Palermo Court of Appeal has been confirmed by the Supreme Court.

Miccoli, who also played for clubs like Perugia, Juventus and Fiorentina, was found guilty of extortion, aggravated by the mafia method.

The 42-year-old was found guilty of assisting his friend to recover a €12,000 debt by contacting Mauro Lauricella, the son of the mafia boss Antonino Calderone.

Sky reports the ‘aggravating circumstance of the mafia method excludes any possible benefit in favour of the former footballer’.

The appeal was rejected and confirmed Miccoli’s sentence of three years and fix months.

Miccoli retired from football in 2015, after 259 matches and 103 goals in Serie A and 17 appearances in the Champions League between his stints at Juventus and Benfica.

    Such a shame and sad to see! On his day, what a special special player Miccoli was but sadly, like many others, just wasted it all with his lack of commitment and extravagant lifestyle!

    I always enjoyed watching him play. One of my favorites.

    He was a trequartista/forward, not attacking midfielder…..


    Such a shame, what a top player, the unsavoury side to his character meant he wasn’t considered enough for Italy, although capped he was another Di Canio in many ways.

    Loved him when he was at Juve and had high hopes for him, but he really showed his worth with Palermo, Fiorentina and Benfica.

    So he wasn’t the messiah…he was just a naughty boy….
