Tebas ‘informed of match-fixing’

Spanish Football League Vice-President Javier Tebas has claimed that a player and Coach have told him that match-fixing in Spain exists.

Tebas, who has confirmed his intention to run against Jose Luis Astiazaran in the upcoming LFP Presidential elections, has previously commented and more than once, on the belief that match-fixing in Spain and La Liga does exist.

Speaking this week on the matter again, the LFP VP was asked to provide more evidence to his claims.

“Yes it exists, we cannot deny the fact, which is very serious. It is a minority, but it is very serious,” Tebas responded on Cadena Cope.

“Match-fixing in Spain is not related to betting, but the tables at the end of the season, when maybe only two or three games are important.

“A player, a Coach…they have told me, but they do not want to go to court. To me a player from La Primera told me and there’s no denying that it exists.

“An important source told me that a colleague told him that he knew games have been fixed. Those that we catch fixing a game will go to jail.”
