Nine people have been arrested for alleged corruption into the building of the new Roma stadium.
A prosecutor has confirmed no one from the club was involved in the investigation. Among those arrested was the stadium's main constructor Luca Parnassi - along with six of his colleagues.

Roma made it to the Champions League semi-final last season losing out to Liverpool 7-6 on aggregate.
