Sampdoria striker gets ban for gambling offence

MILAN, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Sampdoria striker Francesco Flachi has been suspended for two months by the Italian Football League following an investigation into allegations he helped gather information for gamblers.

The Football League's disciplinary commission ruled that Flachi had 'sought to gain information on the outcome of games' for a third party.

Flachi's former Samp team mate Moris Carrozzieri, now with Atalanta, was also handed a two month ban for the same offence relating to a lower division game.

The charges were originally placed against Flachi in October 2005 after a telephone intercept was published featuring him chatting with Fabio Bazzani, then with Lazio, about the Rome derby.

The disciplinary commission's ruling said there had been no evidence that Flachi's behaviour had influenced the outcome of any game but that he had broken rules on gambling and sporting behaviour.

Sampdoria were fined 20,000 euros by the commission.
