In November 2015, the entrepreneur, first a fugitive in Italy and then extradited to the United States, admitted to having paid bribes to various exponents of the world of football, including the former president of the Argentine Football Federation, Giulio Humberto Grondonato which he allegedly paid about 30 million dollars.

Subsequently, Burzaco assumed the role of accused collaborator in the various investigations that took place in New York.
