Gennaro Gattuso denies claims of match fixing

Former AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso was linked to an ongoing match-fixing investigation in Italy.

Italian Police raided his house as he and former Lazio midfielder Brocchi were reported to have been involved in a betting ring that fix matches.

They both face allegations that they were involved in match-fixing in 2011 after investigations suggest that they were in contact with one of the four men that was arrested on Monday for fixing matches.

Gattuso a hard tackling midfielder during his playing time is denying any wrongdoing and threatened to kill himself in the street if found guilty.

Quoted in La Repubblica Sport, Gattuso told Sky Sport Italia: "Never have I ever had the slightest thought about possibly fixing a game.
"If something was proven I would be willing to go out into the street and, I know this is a strong thing to say, I would kill myself.
"Anyone who knows me knows that I can't stand to lose even a practice game, not even a game of cards with my friends.
"I'm angry and offended. I want to clear everything up so I don't have a stain on my career. I have never gambled in my life."
