Paparazzi Fabrizio Corona has been setting Italian football on fire with his revelations of players that are involved in a betting scandal and he has now revealed his main source of information.
Yesterday, Corona had revealed that Roma’s Nicola Zalewski is also involved in the case after he revealed the names of Nicolo Fagioli, Nicolo Zaniolo and Sandro Tonali. Fagioli has already confessed and helped out in the investigation, with other names yet to come out.
Corriere della Sera recently spoke to Corona about his information and where he gets it from and he revealed the source of all of it and stated that the source is also a close friend of Mario Balotelli.
“We will name other names and reveal our source of the news. He is the uncle of a former player from Mourinho’s Inter, a close friend of Mario Balotelli. Mario is a friend of mine, he came here to see me many times, he was shocked by the evidence I gave him. His uncle says that his nephew had moved to Rome and then opened a gambling den.”
Corona revealed that he will give an interview revealing other names soon, stating that presidents are also involved in the gambling den and many are suffering from gambling addiction.
“On Tuesday, we will send the interview and we will name other names; little by little. Is there anyone else from the national team? Yes, there are also Presidents. Do you know what the problem is? That these players are sick, gambling addiction is an addiction like coca cola. They are exploited by the system. First they play slots, black jack, then gambling dens and become victims of the underworld. I know about these but there will be many others.”
Corona also revealed that fix or six teams are involved in the scandal but he isn’t revealing the full names right away because he will be under investigation.
