Suarez language examiner denies cheating

The language examiner of Luis Suarez says he did not see anyone from Juventus talking with Suarez.

Suarez

was close to joining

Juventus

during the summer transfer window. He had to pass the Italian exam but the move did not get finalized. Italian authorities are investigating alleged irregularities in Luis Suarez's Italian citizenship test in September.  Juventus' CFO Fabio Paratici is accused in this case.

Luis Suarez’s language examiner also confirms that he has not seen anyone from Juventus helping the Uruguayan striker. Lorenzo Rocca, one of his examiner of Suarez, has told La Repubblica he has never spoken to Paratici or any other Juventus representative.

“The exam was spoken, with understanding and listening tests. He knew how to answer,”

Rocca said.

“If one knows the questions in advance, is it not difficult?”

Investigators have found a Teams’ conversation between Rocca and Suarez before the exam.

“I didn’t have any kind of relationship with Suarez,” Rocca insisted.

“If a complete stranger comes to my office and wants to know how the Italian exam works, I explain everything and give him the material to prepare, as we did with Suarez. It’s a PDF file downloaded from the website.

“I didn’t only ask the questions from that PDF and it wasn’t just me who asked the questions, other examiners did it too.

"I was not pressured by Juventus to promote him and I have never spoken with anyone from the club, neither with Paratici nor with others.

“There’s a wiretap where [University of Perugia’s CEO Simone] Olivieri tells me about possible future collaborations with Juventus and I don’t even answer him.”
