Moggi: Calcio Cleaner Before Calciopoli

Former Juventus director Luciano Moggi has sensationally claimed Italian football was better off before Calciopoli as he launches another attack on the Italian game as well as those in charge of it...
Moggi is currently banned from the game for his part in the football scandal which rocked Italy in 2006. However, he still keeps his eyes firmly focused on Serie A and he insists nothing has changed.

If anything, football in Italy has become worse, according to the cigar smoking man.

"I don't care about football anymore," Moggi told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

"What happens nowadays is worse than what used to happen before Calciopoli, but no-one is moaning about it.

"Those who were in charge then are still in charge now. Football doesn't want to change.

"I don't want to get back in it either. I will continue to watch it as an outsider like a journalist. I have won trophies, Scudetti and I am the one who holds the record for selling the most expensive player in history in [Zinedine] Zidane.

"I also helped the Juventus shareholders earn good dividends and then I was axed alongside [Antonio] Giraudo."

Reports in Italy had suggested Moggi was trying to make a shock return to the game through some legal loopholes, but that seems unlikely following his latest ranting and raving.
