After Fagioli, Sandro Tonali additionally admitted to having guess. And that he had guess sums of cash “on soccer and on Milan”. The confession got here throughout two photocopy depositions given first to the 007 of the FIGC prosecutor’s workplace after which, on Wednesday, to the prosecutor Manuela Pedrotta and the investigators of the Turin flying squad, who questioned him on the Palace of Justice as a suspect. “He supplied full collaboration to the investigating authorities by exhaustively clarifying his place”, affirm the protection legal professionals, Marco Feno and Maurizio Scaccabarozzi. The previous Rossoneri additionally obtained the “full assist” of Newcastle, the workforce through which he performs, whereas circles near Milan underline that the membership isn’t conscious of the details and discovered the midfielder’s phrases from the press .
But when sports activities justice intends to shortly shut the sport with the gamers concerned, as demonstrated by Fagioli’s plea settlement with 7 months of suspension plus 5 of coaching initiatives to get out of the tunnel of playing habit, on the legal facet the investigation is in full swing and faces new eventualities. We have to perceive whether or not sports activities fraud profiles will emerge from the tangle of information, chats and passwords, not just for the gamers concerned, but additionally for the opposite individuals who used the unauthorized platforms. The truth is, it’s one factor for an athlete to guess on the victory of his personal shirt, it’s one other to guess on a unfavourable end result. To not point out the performs on fouls, yellow playing cards, nook kicks, personal objectives and every other trivialities able to doubtlessly altering the right progress of a match. In the intervening time, nevertheless, nothing of the type has emerged, however the listing of topics to be monitored continues to be very lengthy. Fagioli, within the lengthy interrogation earlier than the 007 of the FIGC, said within the minutes that he had guess “additionally on Torino-Milan” as a result of he wanted the bets on soccer to get well some sums to repay the collectors, however “by no means on Juventus”.
. “Within the interval following September 2022 I performed compulsively in entrance of the TV on any sporting occasion I used to be watching, together with soccer” added the Juventus participant who would have thus burned 3 million euros and for this is able to have been threatened: “they instructed me pay or We’ll break your legs.” So he would have turned to some participant associates: his companion Gatti, who would have given him 40 thousand euros, but additionally Dragusin. And Federico Gatti is likely one of the three new names that Fabrizio Corona, after having denounced having been “censored” by Rai, revealed to ‘Striscia la Notizia’ as a part of his parallel investigation. The opposite two can be the Roma participant Stephan El Shaarawy and the Lazio participant Nicolò Casale. Nevertheless, the one one who seems within the investigation papers is Gatti, who isn’t beneath investigation, exactly in accordance with what Fagioli stated.
The response from El Shaarawy’s legal professionals is harsh: “A couple of clear phrases: Stephan and betting, of any variety, don’t have anything in frequent. He has by no means guess nor has he ever been inquisitive about doing so. “He’s completely calm within the face of completely unfounded accusations and slanderous. Every little thing comes as a consequence, at first each inevitable motion to guard our consumer.”
Nicolò Casale’s legal professionals are additionally on the identical line. ‘He has by no means guess on a sporting competitors and has all the time devoted his life solely to aggressive dedication: nonetheless, unfounded and slanderous accusations have been put into circulation relating to his involvement within the investigation relating to betting on this planet of soccer “.
As for the previous photographer’s alleged moles, Antonio Esposito, the previous Inter spring ahead recognized by ‘La Verità’ because the mole’s nephew, denies any involvement. “I’m devastated,” he instructed ANSA, “what’s occurring is surprising, I had nothing to do with it, folks title names at random on this betting affair.” The uncle, nevertheless, tells one other story and clearly admits to being one of many sources. In Corona, says 55-year-old Maurizio Petra, of Neapolitan origins and a historical past of small drug convictions, “I solely instructed the reality, solely true details that may be verified. I did it to assist my nephew Antonio who’s conscious of episodes offenses dedicated by footballers”. Nevertheless, Petra doesn’t say how he’s serving to his nephew. “He put me on this state of affairs to get assist. They supplied me any quantity. However I didn’t do it for fame or cash”
