Spanish league chief convinced of match-fixing

19 January 2016, 21:32

Madrid - Prosecutors say Spanish league president Javier Tebas has reiterated his belief of match-fixing in a 2011 game.

The prosecutor's office said on Tuesday that Tebas confirmed in his testimony that he has no doubt there was wrongdoing involved in the Levante-Real Zaragoza match at the end of the 2010-2011 season. Zaragoza won 2-1 to escape relegation, and prosecutors alleged that Zaragoza paid nearly 965,000 euros ($1 million) to "Levante players so they would allow Zaragoza to win."

Players and the clubs have denied any wrongdoing.

Tebas denounced the case to prosecutors a few years ago after a complaint by the president of club Deportivo La Coruna, which was demoted to the second division that season.

A judge will decide whether there is enough evidence to start a trial.
