The head coach of the Juventus football team was recently re-elected to his post, but has already been marked by an international scandal. Massimiliano Allegri is suspected of illegally withdrawing a large amount of money through a casino.
The financial institution Bankitalia conducted an investigation, during which it was discovered that the coach of “Juve” spent more than 350 thousand euros in foreign casinos, according to the newspaper Marca. This was considered suspicious, and now Italian law enforcement agencies are investigating the sources of Mr. Allegri’s income. Thus, a Maltese company was found among the payers, which is under investigation and suspected of cooperation with the Ndrangheta organized crime group. In turn, the Juventus mentor has firmly declared his complete innocence, notes Football Italia.
In the run-up to the Euro 2021 (2020), politicians have also intensified – in the UK parliament, they urged not to broadcast betting advertisements during a football tournament.
