DJ Campbell Arrested In Match-Fixing Probe: Blackburn Rovers Striker Questioned By Police

Posted by

Former Birmingham City and QPR man implicated in match-fixing scandal.

Blackburn Rovers striker DJ Campbell has been arrested as part of a match-fixing probe that stems from an undercover newspaper investigation into accusations of players deliberately getting themselves booked or sent-off for financial gain according to the BBC.

His arrest came after ex-Portsmouth player Sam Sodje told an undercover reporter he could arrange for players to secure yellow or red cards.

Portsmouth FC said it was “shocked” at the allegations involving their former player.

DJ Campbell, 32, played Premier League footballer for Birmingham, Blackpool and QPR before moving to Ewood Park.

Blackburn Rovers FC have released a statement:

“Following reports in today’s national media, Blackburn Rovers can confirm that striker DJ Campbell has been arrested.

“The club will be making no further comment on what is now an ongoing legal matter.”
