Nicolo Zaniolo and Sandro Tonali investigated for illegal betting

Italy stars Nicolo Zaniolo and Sandro Tonali have been investigated for illegal betting, after Nicolo Fagioli has been under investigation for the same.

Sky Italia state that the police are seeking clarifications from the Newcastle United midfielder and the Aston Villa winger in the illegal betting case and for their involvement in it. The names of the two Italian stars were given by the photographic agent Fabrizio Corona, who in turn was summoned by the police as a person informed of the fact.

FIGC have confirmed that the pair have left the club’s retreat and they will not feature in the nation’s upcoming games during the international break and will return to their respective clubs.

Corona made statements to the Turin police officers on behalf of the Piedmont prosecutor’s office and had mentioned the names of the two footballers on his social media platforms as part of the illegal betting case, which in recent days also involved the Juventus’ Fagioli. The police were sent to Coverciano on the recommendation of the Turin Public Prosecutor’s Office.
