Gaetano handed two-match ban for match-fixing joke – Sporting Life

Napoli midfielder Gianluca Gaetano has been handed a two-match ban for making a joke about match-fixing over the phone, the Italian football federation (FIGC) said on Friday.


The 22-year-old – on loan at recently promoted Cremonese at that time – sent a WhatsApp message to Como .er Vittorio Parigini four days before their Serie B clash in May asking if he could let his team win.

The message said “Will you leave us the three points on Friday?” followed by two laughing emojis.


Gaetano was charged with violation of the principles of sport fairness and ethics and was also fined €4 500. Cremonese will have to pay a €5 000 fine.

Visiting Cremonese won the game 2-1.


The .er will miss games against Verona on 15 August and Monza on 21 August.
