Naples, May 30 - A mafia suspect admitted Thursday
he was making "a joke" when he said Italian soccer star Mario
Balotelli was dealing drugs in the troubled Scampia
neighbourhood of Naples.
Armando De Rosa admitted he made up the story, during
questioning by prosecutors who are investigating money
laundering by a mafia ring.
In September 2011, Balotelli was called in for questioning
after a visit he made in 2010 to the Naples neighbourhood that
is notorious for drug trafficking and the activity of the local
Camorra mafia.
According to prosecutors at the time, the striker had been
accompanied by two "senior Camorra figures".
Balotelli has always insisted he didn't know who the men
were when they took him around Scampia, an area he was
interested in because of its resemblance to the poor Palermo
quarter where he grew up.
