Only weeks after Christian Vieri was awarded €1 million in damages because former club Inter Milan 'spied' on him, a private investigator has claimed the Nerazzurri also targeted the then Juventus managing director Luciano Moggi.
Working in conjunction with Telecom Italia, Inter have been accused under oath by Emanuele Cipriani of ordering illegal wiretaps on the telephones of Moggi and fellow former Juve director Antonio Giraudo as well as former referee Massimo De Sanctis and the GEA World sports agency, controlled by Moggi's son Alessandro.
The offences allegedly took place in 2002-03, although the statute of limitations on the Calciopoli case has expired, meaning Inter and their management will face no further punishment.
However, Moggi - given a lifetime ban from the game for his role in Calciopoli - promised to follow Vieri's lead and sue the club.
Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss, he said: "Vieri was being spied on, but so was I, and when it comes to us, it'll be even worse. We have requested much more than €1 million in damages, but I can't remember the exact sum.
"I am sure my ban from football will be resolved soon. Will I return to the role of director? At the moment I am enjoying myself doing the job of a journalist. Some say I still run Italian football. That's just an urban myth."
