Luis Suarez 'Admits' To Receiving Answers To Italian Language Exam

Luis Suarez 'Admits' To Receiving Answers To Italian Language Exam

Atletico Madrid ace Luis Suarez has reportedly admitted to receiving the answers to the Italian language exam he took before an aborted move to Juventus ahead of time.

The 33-year-old was close to a move to Turin in September, and took the exam as part of becoming an Italian citizen to complete the transfer. He was eligible for this as his wife is of Italian origin.

However, the deal did not go through, and Suarez ended up staying in Spain and joining Atletico Madrid.

Prosecutors have since alleged that Juventus 'accelerated' the citizenship process, and cheating on the necessary language test - that was taken at the University for Foreigners in Perugia.

Specifically, prosecutor Raffaele Cantone said, according to the Guardian: "the result and score of the exam had been predetermined in order to correspond to the requests made by Juventus."

While Suarez didn't complete the move to Juventus in the end, he did leave Barcelona for rivals Atletico Madrid.

The Uruguayan has made a strong start under manager Diego Simeone, with seven goals in nine appearances, and teammate Diego Costa even jokingly complained that he's keeping him out of the team.
