Liverpool Match Under Investigation

There are reports that Liverpool’s 2009 Champions League match against Debrecen is under investigation for possible match fixing.

The Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet reported that Europol is investigating the Hungarian side which lost 1-0 to Liverpool; however, there has been no suggestion that Liverpool was involved in any wrongdoing.

The Debrecen goalkeeper, Vukasin Poleksic, who was playing that night, was banned for two years in 2010 by UEFA for not reporting match-fixing in a different game.

However, neither the FA nor UEFA have been told of any investigation.

An FA spokesman said that “The FA is not aware of any credible reports into suspicious Champions League fixtures in England, nor has any information been shared with us.”

The director of Europol, Rob Wainwright, said at a news conference that a total of 425 match officials, club officials, players, and serious criminals, from over 15 countries, are suspected attempted match fixing.

Meanwhile FIFA’s head of security, Ralf Mutschke, has called for tougher prison sentences for match-fixing, “currently the custodial sentences imposed are too weak and offer little to deter someone from getting involved in match-fixing.”
