Just for those who thought all those Tuttosport rumours about Izzo were bullshit:
Good thing this guy never joined our beloved club.

Sky: Izzo sentenced to 5 years: external competition in Camorra association and sports fraud​

The defender was sentenced in the first instance to 5 years' imprisonment by the VI criminal section of the Court of Naples for external competition in a Camorra association and sports fraud: the facts date back to a match in the 2013-2014 Serie B championship, when the footballer wore the Avellino shirt.

Five years' imprisonment in the first degree for Armando Izzo. This is the sentence of the VI criminal section of the Court of Naples. The defender now in force at Monza, involved in a case of football betting and organized crime, was convicted of external competition in a Camorra association and sports fraud. The facts date back to the 2013-2014 season, to a match in the Serie B championship (Modena-Avellino 1-0). At the time Izzo wore the shirt of the Campania club, even if he did not play that match. The prosecutor of Naples, Maurizio De Marco, had asked for 4 years and 10 months for the Neapolitan footballer. Izzo's cousin, Umberto Accurso (head of the Vanella Grassi clan of Secondigliano) and Salvatore Russo, believed to be linked to the same clan, were also sentenced to a year and a half.

Modena-Avellino of 2014 and the accusations of the Prosecutor​

As mentioned above, the match at the center of the process is Modena-Avellino on May 17, 2014. For the deputy prosecutor Maurizio De Marco, the brothers Antonio and Umberto Accurso (heads of the Vanella Grassi clan), would have promised and then sent a large sum of money, 30 thousand euros, to the then Avellino player Francesco Millesi, delivered by teammate Luca Pini, to bribe other footballers. According to the public prosecutor's office, Millesi would thus have exerted his influence on other Avellino players to favor the Modena goal. According to the investigators Antonio Accurso, on behalf of the clan, bet as much as 400 thousand euros on the goal created by the home team, precisely Modena, earning 60 thousand. Armando Izzo, according to the indictment, in turn accepted the promise of a sum of money "as compensation in order to achieve a result other than that resulting from the correct and fair conduct of the aforementioned competition". The defender, on the other hand, was acquitted of the charge of having committed similar offenses in the Avellino-Reggina match played on 25 May 2014.

Monza: "Proximity and support, Izzo lawyers ready to appeal"​

Monza wanted to express its closeness to its client with the following press release: "AC Monza has learned that its member Armando Izzo has been sentenced in the first instance for external competition in a Camorra association and sports fraud - it reads -. AC Monza expresses total closeness and support to Armando, convinced of his extraneousness to the criminal environment. The footballer's lawyers are disappointed by the sentence and are waiting to read the reasons; after which they will present an appeal".

Izzo: "I believe in justice and my non-involvement will be proven"​

" I am very disappointed by the first instance sentence " - Armando Izzo commented on his social media I was acquitted for not having committed the crime in the Avellino-Reggina match on May 25, 2014 but I am accused of having combined the Modena - Avellino match on May 17 May 2014, a match that I didn't even play. I will read the reasons with my lawyers and we will present an appeal. I believe in justice and I am sure that my absolute non-involvement in the criminal environment will be demonstrated. I thank AC Monza and my family, who they are always close".

Fucking Brits in the replies. Try to fucking get it, it's not Inter Milan. There is no "Milan" in Inter's name for fuck sake.

Let's call ourselves Football Club only. What could go wrong?

That comment section is atrocious.

I like that some people called out the fact that no one calls Arsenal "Arsenal London". But I think they still don't get it.
There's something about the English language that dumbs down its speakers.

I've been contemplating getting an Acerbi jersey for a while now. I imagine it'll be quite the conversation starter.

When I was in France last year, I had the pleasure of seeing several Milan shirts (because their fans no longer needed to be ashamed of anything), several Juventus shirts (because their fans have no capacity to feel shame), and preciously one Inter shirt the entire time I was there. I was really disappointed by it.
