Poleksic was banned for two years but the UEFA charge at the time only specified Fiorentina. Liverpool state they have never been notified by any organisation that the match at Anfield was under investigation.
A statement on Debrecen’s official website said:
“The Uefa disciplinary committee’s position was that Vukasin Poleksic neglected his obligations when he didn’t report in time that, before two international matches of DVSC, unknown persons attempted to persuade him to influence the outcome of the matches.
“The two matches were the away game against Liverpool and the home encounter with Fiorentina.
“Neither DVSC nor the player wish to react further, all the more so as all the information has been released about this affair during the summer of 2010.”

A total of 425 suspects were identified.
50 people have been arrested.
80 search warrants obtained.
