The Atletico Madrid captain Gabi, Japan manager Javier Aguirre, and 38 others have also been named in the case, which is about a match between Real Zaragoza and Levante on the last day of the 2010/11 season.The result meant that Zaragoza stayed in La Liga for another year.

Aguirre was coaching the side, while Gabi and the now Red Devils man were playing. Spain’s anti-corruption prosecutor has alleged that the opposing team’s players were paid £766,000 to deliberately lose the fixture. Zaragoza supposedly first wired money to its players and officials, and then took the money out as cash and gave it to their opposite numbers at Levante.

The case was filed in Valencia on Monday and the judge ruling on the case will now have to decide whether to carry on with the prosecution.
