Bookmaker scandal. Nikola Zalewski announced the trial
Fabrizio Corona, who exposed this practice, also named Nikola Zalewski and Stefan El-Shaarawy as participants in the bookmaking scandal. However, as it later turned out, the journalist’s informant publicly admitted that he had made up a version about the Roma player’s involvement in this scandal.
Despite this, the Crown has not changed its opinion and still claims that the Polish representative has been involved in gambling for many years and has irrefutable evidence of this. The football player’s lawyers immediately reacted to these words and announced that they would file a lawsuit against the journalist. In a statement sent to Italian news agency ANSA, they said their client rules out any involvement in the cases he is accused of.
