FOOTBALL-ITALY-SUAREZ: Football: Suarez would have rigged his Italian test, according to prosecutors


ROME (Reuters) - Italian prosecutors said on Tuesday they had proof that the language test passed by Uruguayan FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez in order to obtain Italian citizenship was rigged.

Luis Suarez, whose wife is of Italian origin, took the exam last Thursday at the University for foreigners in Perugia with a view to a possible transfer to Juventus.

The success of the event should indeed allow the Uruguayan player to obtain an accelerated citizenship, and Juventus to sign the striker without exceeding his authorized quota of non-European players.

Elections in Italy: far right and Salvini fail to take revenge

 Elections in Italy: far right and Salvini fail to take revenge Matteo Salvini dreamed of revenge, but the former interior minister failed. The Italian far right failed on Monday to conquer Tuscany, a left-wing bastion and key region which it hoped to make a triumphant symbol of its national ambitions.

Italian financial police and the Perugia public prosecutor 's office have opened an investigation into allegations of irregularities regarding Luis Suarez 's In order to complete the move, the 33-year-old Uruguayan would have needed to have acquired Italian citizenship as Juventus have no available

According to Italian outlet Gazzette dello Sport, the new Juventus boss said: ' Suarez is difficult because the times to get a passport are long, it is complicated The breakdown in his move to Juve has allowed Atletico to swoop in, with Diego Simeone looking to pair Suarez with Diego Costa up front.

However, the media quickly suspected that he had received preferential treatment.

The Attorney General of Perugia Raffaele Cantone claimed that, according to the investigation, the exam questions had been agreed in advance with the attacker and that he was awarded a mark even before the passage of the exam.

Police raided the university on Tuesday looking for further evidence, Raffaele Cantone said in a statement. Italian newspaper La Repubblica also reported that five employees of the establishment were under investigation, including the rector.

Luis Suarez himself is not, however, named among those under investigation.

La Repubblica also published the contents of conversations allegedly recorded by the police during their investigation. In one of them, we hear in particular a trainer preparing the Uruguayan international for the exam saying to a colleague "he does not know how to say a word", before calling the player an absolute beginner in Italian.

Luis Suarez, 33, achieved the intermediate B1 qualification required for citizenship in just 15 minutes, his examiner said after the test, adding that the striker only had to take the oral portion of the exam.

The other applicants for Italian citizenship also had to pass a two and a half hour written test.

Luis Suarez's transfer to Juve now seems unlikely since the last Serie A winner is preparing to repatriate striker Alvaro Morata from Atlético de Madrid. The Uruguayan international also seems inclined to take Morata's place at Atlético.
