Lazio captain Stefano Mauri slammed media for being “misinformed” when reporting on a new illegal betting link.
Today La Repubblica newspaper alleged Mauri was the man named ‘Stefano160268’ on Skype who was in conversation with Roberto Palmieri over upcoming games.
“I read in the usual vague and misinformed papers that my name is back in the centre of the investigation because the authorities suspect ‘Stefano160268’ is me,” wrote Mauri on his Facebook page.
“This is truly absurd and incredible: the Cremona authorities have had access to my personal computer for over two years.
“It did not take (nor does it now!) much to verify what Skype account I used. From the information there it is possible to trace the user who appeared in the papers, who I hope the authorities have already found and who certainly is not me.
“I cannot believe that such important news organisations did not research this story properly. I realise the ‘Mauri scandal’ has more of an impact on the front page, but I cannot accept this constant suspicion and therefore from now on I’ll protect my good name with my lawyers.”
