The matches in question took place between November 2022 and August 2023, and he has been investigated since the beginning of last season, despite never having received any punishment since then. After confirming the complaint, Paquetá also spoke publicly, in what he promised would be the first and last time during the process.

I am extremely surprised and upset that the FA have decided to charge me. I cooperated with all stages of the investigation and provided all the information I could during these nine months. I deny the accusations completely and will fight with all my strength to clear my name. Due to the ongoing process, I will not be providing further comment.”, said the player.
