Premier League Duo Among 41 Named In Match Fixing Investigation In Spain

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera and Swansea’s Jefferson Montero are among 41 people named in a match-fixing investigation in Spain. Prosecutors allege Real Zaragoza paid Levante around 770-thousand-pounds to let them win a La Liga match in 2011, which meant they avoided relegation. A report alleges Herrera, who was playing for Zaragoza, was one of 10 people who withdrew money to pay bribes. Montero was playing for Levante at the time. UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Celtic following their Europa League game at Dinamo Zagreb last week. It’s alleged a flare was let off in the away end of the match in Croatia. Celtic had warned their supporters not to use flares before the game. The case will be dealt with on the 19th of February.
