Lazio captain Stefano Mauri was banned for six months by the Italian Football Federation on Friday for his part in a match-fixing scandal.

Mauri was one of eight players accused of rigging the Serie A games between Lazio-Genoa and Lecce-Lazio in May 2011 and for failing to report match-fixing.

He was found guilty for his role in the Lecce match but cleared of anything untoward against Genoa. Mauri was found guilty only of failing to report match-fixing. Mauri said he will appeal his ban.
