41 years old Fabio Cannavaro has been sentenced to 10 months in prison for breaching orders to keep out of his home after it was seized by authorities due to suspected abuse of planning regulations.
According to The Independent, The former Juventus and Real Madrid player has been under investigation for tax evasion and in October authorities in Napes seized almost €1m of goods linked to Cannavaro and his wife, including a €180,000 yacht.
Cannavaro was reportedly caught swimming in the property’s pool with his wife – leading to the breach of orders and the 10 month sentence. His wife, Daniela Arenoso, and brother Paolo have also been given custodial sentences.
