Cannavaro and his wife, have been under investigation for tax evasion by the Italian authorities.

His wife and brother, Paolo were each given custodial sentences. They have all appealed against the ruling.

Cannavaro won the best player award in 2006, after playing a pivotal role helping Italy win the World Cup
