Bonucci named in betting probe

Juventus’ Leonardo Bonucci has been under investigation for alleged match fixing since May 3, says Italian news agency ANSA.

The defender’s name appears on the paperwork of prosecutors in Cremona with regard to his time with former club Bari.

Bonucci has been included in the Italian international squad for Euro 2012, whereas Zenit’s Domenico Criscito was dropped after he was caught up in the betting match fixing investigation on Monday.

The only difference between the situations of the two players is that Criscito was handed an official notification that he was under investigation, while Bonucci hasn’t.

Neither player has been charged with any wrongdoing.
