Prosecutor sees ‘big problems’ for Serie A

The prosecutor leading the latest inquiry into match-fixing in

Italy believes there are ”big problems” for Serie A.

Cremona prosecutor Roberto Di Martino has been coordinating

questioning for several of the 16 people arrested across Italy last

week.

Di Martino said last week that the inquiry is focused on 18

matches mostly in Serie B and C, but key suspects in the case have

reportedly divulged information about top division games that were

fixed.

According to the ANSA news agency, Di Martino says he has ”the

feeling that there are big problems in Serie A, that there were

matches fixed. … It’s a feeling, and a feeling without any checks

is not proof. However, the feeling is that in Serie A the fixes

were not between players, but between the clubs.”
