WORLD CUP WINNER JAILED OVER ARMS, MAFIA LINKS

Former Juventus and Italy striker Vincenzo Iaquinta has been sentenced to two years in prison as part of a mafia trial, Football Italia reports.

The Germany 2006 World Cup winner was indicted in December 2015 for illegal possession of firearms, as well intention to aid the ‘Ndrangheta, the Calabrian mafia.

In May the prosecutor requested that he be jailed for six years, with his father to be sent down for 19 years.

Over 140 people were put on trial in one of northern Italy’s most high-profile mafia trials, suspected of helping the ‘Ndrangheta to infiltrate the north of the country.
