Manchester United and Spain midfielder Ander Herrera could be charged with a ban if found guilty of match-fixing allegations levelled against him.
Herrera was reportedly in match-fixing allegations during his time at Levante in 2011. He was reportedly among the players who were paid to manipulate the match involving Real Zaragoza and Levante in the last match of the season.
The match ended 2-1 in favour of Zaragoza which prevented them from being relegated to the lower division.
Alexis Sanchez is also facing an off-pitch crisis as he is being fined for not paying the tax on his image-right payments during his time at Camp Nou. The Chilean international has pleaded guilty to the charge levelled against him and he is said to pay a fine of £525,000.
Unlike Sanchez who pleaded guilty so as to avoid facing trial, Herrera pleaded not guilty and he told reporters that he is ready to go any length to prove his innocence on the issue.
“I have never had and will never have anything to do with manipulating match results,” Herrera said in a statement in December 2014.
The player who hasn’t been able to get much game-time this season revealed that he collected nothing before the game and he knows nothing about manipulating any match
“I love football and I believe in fair play, both on and off the pitch.” he concluded.
