Suarez under hot investigation by the Italian Police Service

Former Barcelona striker, Luis Suarez is currently under investigation by the Italian Police Service with the claim that Suarez cheated in his Italian citizenship test in an attempt to secure his transfer to Juventus.

Suarez flew to Perugia last week and passed a dual citizenship test in order to speed up his move to the Serie A giants.

Although that deal has now fallen through, Suarez could yet find himself in hot water after claims by Repubblica and Ansa that there were ‘irregularities’ in the test.

It has been reported that Suarez was sent the questions in advance and passed the Italian language (B1 level) exam having already been told the answers, with an investigation by the Guardia di Finanza now underway.

Repubblica carried quotes from an official on Monday, who said: ‘He does not speak a word of Italian. He does not conjugate verbs, he only speaks using the infinitive. If journalists would ask him some questions, he’d be lost.’

The police are now said to be acquiring documentation from the University of Perugia, where Suarez’s test took place, and the player risks heavy legal action by the Public Prosecutor of Perugia.
