Genoa defender Armando Izzo has had his ban and fine over match-fixing allegations reduced.

Izzo was banned for 18 months and fined 50,000 euros (£42,972) last month for failing to disclose a match-fixing agreement when at Avellino in 2013-14.

Italy’s Federal Appeal Court on Friday reduced the ban to six months and 30,000 euros (£25,783).

“It was a hard year, a year in which I suffered a lot,” wrote Izzo on Facebook after the result of the appeal.

“But I was never afraid, I have always been confident in my honesty and I have never stopped fighting for the truth.”

Izzo was called up to Italy’s national squad last November but did not make the team.

Genoa are fifth from bottom in Serie A and only two points off the relegation zone.

Their last two games of the season are at home to ninth-placed Torino on Sunday (14:00 BST) and away to second-placed Roma (19:45 BST) on 28 May.
