(ANSA) - Rome, August 22 - A federal appeals court on
Wednesday confirmed the match-fixing acquittal of Juve's
defender Leonardo Bonucci and his club teammate Simone Pepe.
Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) prosecutor Stefano Palazzi
had requested a ban of three and a half years for Bonucci and
one year for Pepe for alleged wrongdoing committed at their
respective former clubs, Bari and Udinese.
Bonucci was suspected of involvement in an agreement to fix
a match between Udinese and Bari in May 2010, while Pepe was
suspected of having known about it and not informed the
authorities.
Both were previously cleared of offences by an FIGC
disciplinary panel early August.
