The forward Uruguayan international Luis Suarez is suspected of having cheated, with the help of his teachers, to take an Italian exam last week, a statement from the Perugia (Umbria, center) prosecutor's office said on Tuesday, which opened an investigation.

This Italian diploma was a first step in obtaining an Italian passport, an essential document before a possible transfer of the star from FC Barcelona to Juventus Turin, an operation that has since been abandoned.

"The investigation showed that the subjects discussed during the examination were agreed beforehand with the candidate and that the mark was awarded to him even before the examination", specifies the prosecution.

The prosecutor of this public prosecutor's office, Raffaele Cantone, former head of the Italian National Anti-Corruption Authority, had been carrying out an investigation since last February for various irregularities against the leaders of the University for foreigners and would have discovered the pot-aux-roses concerning Suarez through orderly eavesdropping much earlier.

"But what do you think we're going to fail him? Today I have the last lesson (with Suarez, Editor's note) and I have to prepare it because he hardly speaks a word" d 'Italian, tells an interlocutor Stefania Spina, one of the people targeted by the investigation, according to documents from the prosecution cited by the media.

Asked by his interlocutor on the level that Suarez "should obtain" in Italian, Mrs. Spina answers: "he should not, he must, he will have it, because with a salary of 10 million (euros, Editor's note) by season, you can not make him miss "his exam," even if he does not know how to conjugate verbs and speaks in the infinitive ", according to the same source.

Obtaining an Italian passport would have allowed Suarez not to occupy a place of non-EU player within the squad of Juventus, thus facilitating the operation. The Uruguayan striker (33), who arrived at Barça in 2014, is leaving the Catalan club after the appointment of a new coach, the Dutchman Ronald Koeman, who said he was not counting on him for the 2020-2021 season .
