Juventus midfielder Nicolò Fagioli gets seven-month ban from soccer for betting violations

 

Juventus midfielder Nicolo Fagioli (44) celebrates after scoring his goal to make it 1-0 during the Serie A football match n.35 JUVENTUS - CREMONESE on May 14, 2023 at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Piedmont, Italy. 

Juventus midfielder Nicolò Fagioli was banned for seven months by the Italian soccer federation on Tuesday for betting violations.

Fagioli agreed to a plea bargain with the FIGC that included therapy for a gambling addiction.

The 22-year-old Fagioli, who has already been seeing a therapist for his problem, alerted the Italian soccer federation’s prosecutor about the case and has been co-operating with authorities to mitigate his punishment.

That allowed the minimum ban of three years for players betting on soccer matches to be greatly reduced. Fagioli has reportedly never bet on matches involving Juventus.
