The Turin Prosecutor’s Office intends to delve into the matter on the alleged threats that Nicolò Fagioli reported having suffered, in relation to the illegal betting of which he is accused. The Juventus midfielder had stated – before the federal prosecutor’s office – that he had received “heavy threats” (“We’ll break your legs”) from his creditors if he hadn’t paid off his gambling debts. The Prosecutor’s Office of the Piedmontese capital is already in possession of the documents of the interrogation given to the FIGC which, in the meantime, has made the seven-month disqualification official.

Juve relies on its player

«The Company takes note of the official press release of the FIGC n. 177/AA and confirms its full support for Nicolò Fagioli in tackling this path, providing the boy with the necessary support in carrying out the indicated therapeutic plan and, as expressly provided for in the agreement, also collaborating with the Federation to identify the planned meeting cycles”. We read it in a note from Juventus.
“We are firmly convinced that Nicolò, with the support of the Club, his teammates, his family and the professionals who assist him – concludes the statement – will face the therapeutic and training path with a great sense of responsibility and, once the disqualification has been served , will be able to compete again with due serenity.”
