Gattuso House Raided As Part Of Betting Scandal

The home of 2006 World Cup winner Gennaro Gattuso was raided by police this morning in the latest betting match-fixing twist.

The Cremona based investigators, as part of their next step in their lengthy inquiry, have placed the Milan legend under investigation for alleged wrongdoing.

The Gazzetta dello Sport writes that four men, believed to have been acting as intermediaries between players and betting syndicates, were arrested today for questioning.

The Gazzetta also writes that authorities are taking a close look at a number of top-flight games involving Milan, Juventus and Inter.

Those under the microscope are Milan-Lazio, Chievo-Milan [both February 2011], the March 2011 Milan-Bari, Juve-Lazio [April 2012] and Palermo-Inter [April 2013].

Gennaro Gattuso told Sport Mediaset that he is ‘angry and offended’ that his name was dragged up as part of the Calcioscommesse scandal.

“I am angry and offended,” he told the television station. “I am calm about it – I am going to clear my name of everything.

“I do not want to have these marks on my career.

“I have never gambled in my life.”
