Prosecutors seek Napoli sanctions

Italian football federation (FIGC) prosecutors on Monday demanded Napoli be docked one point and captain Paolo Cannavaro banned for nine months for their role in the "Calcioscommesse" match-fixing affair.

The same punishment has been sought for one other Napoli player, Gianluca Grava, as well as Napoli's former number two goalkeeper, Matteo Gianello.

The charges relate to attempts to affect the outcome of games, a practice which is linked to illegal betting rings.

Prosecutor Palazzi also demanded Napoli pay a fine of 100,000 euros.
