Clubs: 'Investigation on agents'

Statements from Udinese and Chievo suggest today’s raid on clubs by financial police was targeting specific agents.

This morning financial police staged a co-ordinated raid on 41 different Serie A and B clubs, taking away boxes of documents.

“They also came to Udinese’s headquarters,” confirmed President Franco Soldati.

“They wanted to have the documentation relating to the activities of Alessandro Moggi and another agent. They took away documents regarding a player who was with us for five years.”

Chievo also released an official statement noting they have “collaborated fully” with the authorities, as their investigation is based on agents rather than the club itself.

It is believed this is a raid seeking to find evidence of tax fraud and even potential money laundering.
