Paqueta breaks silence on accusations

Paqueta breaks silence on accusations

West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta has finally addressed the ongoing FA betting accusations during a press conference with the Brazilian national team.

Paqueta, previously silent except for a single Instagram post, stressed that this would be his only comment on the subject. Taking into account the advice of his lawyers, he refrained from giving further details.

Foot Mercato reported the following from Paqueta regarding his current situation.

The West Ham star made his stance on the situation very clear, saying:

This will be the first and only time I will speak on this subject. My lawyers have advised me not to comment on this matter.

“What I can say is that I continue to do my best by cooperating. My lawyers are defending me so that everything is finally clarified.”

“The decision made me sad but we will do everything to change this decision and cooperate.”

A meeting with the FA planned for this week has been delayed due to Paqueta’s legal team going on vacation! And the problem should not be resolved before the transfer window closes.
