Florenzi admitted his involvement in placing bets at illegal bookmakers
The lawyers for AC Milan defender Alessandro Florenzi commented on the investigation into their client's involvement in illegal betting.
'In discussions with the prosecutor, Alessandro Florenzi clarified his position and confirmed that he is absolutely not involved in football betting. No other evidence has emerged on this matter.
Additionally, Alessandro admitted to gambling at illegal bookmakers and provided all explanations to the prosecutor. He hopes to clarify his position as soon as possible,' - stated in the statement.
If it's proven that Alessandro did not place bets on football matches, the Italian faces only a fine for using illegal bookmakers.
Previously, Nicolò Fagioli (Juventus) and Sandro Tonali (Newcastle) were disqualified for betting on football matches. Nicolò Zaniolo (Aston Villa) was also under suspicion, but he insisted that he only played at online casinos.
