Moggi has earlier in the week been sentenced to five years and four months behind bars in a Naples court for his role in the 2006 match-fixing scandal, dubbed 'Calciopoli'. His lawyer said he would be appealing that conviction for sporting fraud and conspiracy.

Baldini, who was sporting director at Roma for the period covered by that trial, was due to give evidence to the court in June 2008, by which time he was working as general manager for the England national team.

Moggi was found guilty on Thursday by a Rome court of approaching Baldini and saying: "Watch your step or you’ll have problems."

An eight-month sentence had been sought by prosecutors for the offence.
