Paqueta attends FA betting probe interview


By Sean Whetstone

Lucas Paqueta has already made it clear to the Football Association that he is entirely innocent of the allegations surrounding him over irregular betting accusations.

The FA started their probe into the situation several weeks ago and that of course is the reason he remains a Hammer with Manchester City’s interest in him coming as the news broke.

As a result of that the champions pulled out and have seen the midfielder producing better and better performances for the Irons.

I understand that Lucas¬† has already been interviewed by the FA over their enquiry into suspicious betting patterns involving his yellow cards and he is due to return and speak to them again in a few weeks’ time.

The Brazilian Hammer completely protests his innocence and says he has no connection or any knowledge of the alleged offences and will continue the fight to clear his name.
