Inter charged with falsifying transfer documents
ROME, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Serie A leaders Inter Milan have been called to appear before the Italian Football Federation's (FIGC) disciplinary committee to answer charges of falsifying documents in the transfer of a goalkeeper.
Simone Brunelli moved from AC Milan to Inter in 2003 but after being sent on loan to a series of lower division clubs he claimed the signature on the transfer documents was not his.
Inter risk a fine if found guilty.
The 23-year-old's transfer is also the subject of a separate investigation by Milan magistrates into false accounting by the two clubs.
Last week Inter president Massimo Moratti and Milan vice-president Adrian Galliani were called for questioning as part of the probe looking into the way clubs manipulate balance sheets by inflating the prices of players they buy and sell.
Neither man has been charged. The magistrates said they intended to hand on their findings to the FIGC, which could then decide whether to open its own investigation.
Last September, Rome magistrates called for the president of AS Roma, Franco Sensi, and the former president of Lazio, Sergio Cragnotti, to stand trial for false accounting. Both men deny the accusations.
