Kevin-Prince Boateng & Monza Teammates Render Apologies For Switzerland Casino Trip

Ghana forward Kevin-Prince Boateng and eight other players of AC Monza have expressed deepest remorse for breaking Covid-19 rules by making a trip to a casino in Switzerland.

Monza is close to the Swiss border and a group of eight players made a day trip over to gamble at the casino in Lugano.

The players were initially told to self-isolate after the club became aware of their actions, then when they were given the all-clear to play this weekend against Salernitana, Monza dropped them anyway as punishment.

“It was meant to be a bit of fun. We honestly didn’t think that we were doing anything to damage the fans, the club, the staff or our teammates.

“Unfortunately, all of us under-estimated the implications, otherwise we’d without doubt have taken other options into consideration to spend our afternoon off.”
