Historical Notes: Adriano Galliani, who wore two hats as the director of AC Milan and President of the Italian Soccer League, had resisted calls for his resignation after it emerged that he was under investigation in a game-fixing scandal that captivated Italy. On 24 June 2006, when both Galliani and his team were formally charged with sporting fraud and violations of fairness, Galliani was forced to resign.
