An Argentinian court ruled against the Juventus star as he was ordered to pay indemnity for his challenge on Roberto Pizzo on 14 August 1994.
The victim required surgery and a lengthy recovery period after being “kicked” by the then 17-year-old during a match in Buenos Aires.
According to Argentinian newspaper ClarÃƒÂn, the Civil and Commercial court in Mar del Plata ordered the former Club AtlÃƒÂ©tico Banfield player to pay damges after ending Pizzo’s career.
The ruling stated: “Although itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not possible to describe CamoranesiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s action as deliberately intentional, it was incredibly clumsy Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ abnormal and avoidable.”
Camoranesi left Argentina’s top division for Cruz Azul in 1998. Following a two-year spell in Mexico he moved to Serie A, joining Verona and in 2002 he made the switch to Juventus.
He holds dual citzenship as an Italian-Argentine but opted to represent Italy at national level and was a key member of Italy’s World Cup-winning team in 2006.
