Atalanta 'critical' in betting scandal

Atalanta have hired lawyers after reports their position in the betting scandal has become “critical.”

The club could see their promotion to Serie A put in doubt by the investigation into alleged match-fixing by a betting syndicate.

It has been widely reported in the Italian media that Saturday's interrogations pushed Atalanta's position to “critical.”

With that in mind, late last night the Bergamo club released a statement confirming it had hired lawyers “Jean-Louis Dupont, Luigi Chiappero and Gian Pietro Bianchi to aid and protect the reasons, interests and image of Atalanta in every arena.”
