the Wait has been long for Fabrizio Miccoli, but on Wednesday, the former Italian landsholdsangriber after six years finally receive his judgment for a spectacular case involving the mafia-methods.
however, It was not good news for the now 40-year-old former star from clubs such as Juventus and Fiorentina was in fact sentenced to a term of imprisonment of three and a half years for the case, which is quite spectacular.
For Miccoli helped back in 2014 a friend in a case where his friend meant to have the money from a sale of a nightclub. 20,000 euros, or about 150,000 dollars, it amounted to.
Miccoli joined on the pitch to help, and when it all played out in Sicily, he went of course to the mafia to get the money recovered. He turned to Mauro Lauricella, who is the son of the now deceased mafia boss Antonino Calderone, and he helped me to find a man who had the ability to charge the amount.

This, in itself, is not often used in Italy, who have taken the big showdown with the mafia. And there is speculation even in that Miccolis judgment was sharpened after he allegedly threatened a judge who is known to be mafia-opponent.
the Man, who carried out the mafia-the job, was last year sentenced to seven years in prison, while Miccoli that is as a backer got half the punishment.
Miccolis lawyer confirms that the verdict will be appealed to the Italian supreme court.
Fabrizio Miccoli was in his active career brought to Juventus in 2002, where he in the first season was loaned out to Perugia and since bombed for the Turin club and for the national team.
His career was, however, easier tumultarisk then with transfers to Fiorentina and Benfica, before he found more peace in Palermo in Sicily, where he with relatively great success played in six seasons.
He finished his career with two seasons in Lecce in the third row, before he completely stopped in 2015.
