Soccer: Napoli may seek damages after two-point penalty


(see related story)
Rome, December 18 - Napoli may take legal action to
obtain damages after an Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC)
tribunal docked them two Serie A points for their players'
alleged involvement in an attempt to fix a match against
Sampdoria in 2010.
Napoli defenders Paolo Cannavaro, the brother of Italy's
retired 2006 World Cup-winning captain Fabio Cannavaro, and
Gianluca Grava were banned for six months for failing to report
the attempted fix to the authorities.
The club was fined 70,000 euros.
Former backup Napoli goalkeeper Matteo Gianello was banned
for three years and three months for the more serious charge of
sporting fraud.
"(The possibility of legal action) should not be excluded,
on the contrary, I think it will be taken into consideration,"
Napoli's lawyer, Mattia Grassani, told Italian radio.
"Napoli has suffered damage in terms of its assets, its
image and its sporting fortunes.
"The club is paying for the behaviour of an ex-player like
Matteo Gianello, who didn't even play one minute in the
2009-2010 season.
"We respond to the decision with great dismay, unease and
protest. It's an unjust sentence".
