Bonucci to face betting questions

Juventus stopper Leonardo Bonucci will also face questioning as part of the betting probe, it is being reported.

The ANSA news agency is claiming that Bonucci’s name has turned up during the investigation by Cremona officials which led to the arrest of 19 people earlier today.

However, their findings have been passed on to magistrates in Bari who are also investigating alleged match fixing in relation to betting syndicates.

Bonucci will have to answer questions with regard to his time with Bari during their Serie A campaign in 2009-10.

The centre-back was named in Cesare Prandelli’s 25-man squad for Euro 2012 today, but Domenico Criscito was omitted.

The full-back left Coverciano after police raided his room as part of their enquiry into the calcioscommesse scandal.

Juventus will hold a Press conference this evening after the house of boss Antonio Conte was also hit by the authorities on Monday.
