Italy's coach's son under investigation

The match-fixing scandal in Italy just keeps growing as Marcello Lippi's son, Davide, is now under investigation by magistrates for "illegal competition with use of threats and violence."

Davide worked for GEA World, a sports talent agency, which represents over 200 players and coaches. The son of former Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi heads GEA World.

The coach insists that he had no business dealing with his son while he worked at GEA. Still, this adds another interesting point to the allegations that Luciano Moggi influenced Lippi's decision on whom to choice for the national team.
