Nicolo Zaniolo has been implicated in a sports betting scandal along with Sandro Tonali. Speaking today, Nicolo Zaniolo’s lawyer, Gianluca Tognozzi, admitted that his client had never placed a bet. At the same time, he asserted that he risked little more than a small fine.
While Sandro Tonali is expected to undergo therapy for his gambling addiction, Nicolo Zaniolo, also implicated in the same affair, could face a modest fine. This is what his lawyer told the Italian press. “He has never gambled. Only poker or blackjack, we will clarify everything. A fine of a few hundred euros, unless there is such a repetition of the offence that it makes it impossible to impose a simple financial penalty,” Gianluca Tognozzi told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.
