“Four players match-fixed”

Eldense player Chiekh Saad has claimed four of his teammates were involved in match-fixing during Saturday’s 12-0 loss to Barcelona B.

The forward explained he was on the verge of a fight with "four players" whom he ‘can name’, and comes in the aftermath of the club withdrawing from football for the remainder of the campaign.

“There are four players involved in match fixing,” Saad explained to RAC 1.

“I don’t care what happens, but when I can, I will give the names of these players. In the dressing room I was on the verge of coming to blows with these players.

“Half an hour before the game I was starting, but then they made us leave the line up. They told a team-mate this game was fixed and if he wanted to play he should not score goals. They didn’t ask me. The coach knew something, I’m sure, and the players too.

“The coach told me to come on and I told him I did not want to. I also told my team-mates on the bench that they shouldn’t go out on to the pitch if they didn’t want their names to be stained.

“Were opponents involved? I don’t know, they did what they had to do – score goals.”
