£28m midfielder to give evidence…
Manchester United’s talented Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera is in hot water, after being summoned to speak in court over former side Real Zaragoza’s match fixing allegations, reports the Daily Mail.
28 other players will have to travel to Valencia early in 2015, following questions raised about a match in 2011 between Zaragoza and Levante.
Zaragoza had to win to stay up, and did so 2-1, with Deportivo president Augusto Lendoiro (whose team ended up going down) suggesting that payments were made to ensure the ‘right’ result ensued.
The manager at the time, Javier Aguirre, is also rumoured to have received a bung from Zaragoza president Agapito Iglesias.
Herrera has struggled since arriving in England for huge money during the summer, mainly because of an injury which has restricted his Premier League appearances.
