Police: 'More shocking betting revelations'

Chief of Police Antonio Manganelli warns there could be “even more shocking” revelations in the betting scandal.

The investigation is still on-going and has seen some players confess to working with betting syndicates in a bid to fix games.

Andrea Masiello most notably admitted to scoring an own goal on purpose in Bari 0-2 Lecce on May 15 2011 and was banned for 26 months.

“Some things have emerged from the investigation, others are about to emerge and will bring further answers, which are perhaps even more shocking,” said Chief of Police Manganelli today.

“The investigation is still on-going and more behaviour against the rules will emerge.

“Bets were not just made on the final result, but also on who would take the ball out of the net, who would take the first corner, who would get the first header and more. This was also a way of making money.”
