Bookmaker scandal. Nicola Zalewski announced the trial
Fabrizio Corona, who revealed this practice, also named Nicola Zalewski and Stephan El Shaarawy as participants in the bookmaking scandal. However, as it later turned out, the journalist’s informant publicly admitted that he invented the story about the AS Roma player’s involvement in this scandal.
Despite this, Corona did not change his mind and still claims that the Polish representative has been gambling for years and has irrefutable proof of it. The footballer’s lawyers reacted immediately to these words and announced that they would file a lawsuit against the journalist. In a statement sent to the Italian news agency ANSA, they said that their client excludes any involvement in the cases he is accused of.
