Andrea Abodi, Italy’s Minister of Sport, has spoken out about players who are guilty of illegal betting. Speaking on Radio 1, he described these acts as high treason.
“What the footballers have done is high treason. They have betrayed feelings, passion, trust and the role of reference, especially for children and the youngest. It is essential that soccer institutions do their part and take responsibility for projects to educate members against illegal betting. League B, with the integrity tour that I wanted so much, has seen since 2018 the clubs involved with the Aic and the Ministry of Public Security,” said Andrea Abodi.
