Soccer: Lazio's Sculli banned over trouble-hit Genoa match

(ANSA) - Rome, October 9 - Lazio forward Giuseppe Sculli was banned for a month by an Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) tribunal on Tuesday for events related to a trouble-hit match with his former side Genoa last season. Sculli negotiated with the fans who raised the havoc that led to a 45-minute suspension of Genoa's 4-1 loss to Siena in April. The match became infamous because Genoa players gave in to demands from hardcore 'ultra' supporters for them to take off their shirts, the logic being they were not worthy of them given the way they were playing. The FIGC tribunal said Sculli had frequented the trouble-making fans and had passed on intimidatory messages from them to the rest of his former team. Genoa were fined 30,000 euros.
