AN investigation into match-fixing in La Liga has been postponed until the end of the season.

A hearing called for March 5 has been pushed back because not all of the 41 potential witnesses could be located.

The allegations relate to the final game of the 2011 season between Levante and Real Zaragoza.

Manchester United’s Ander Herrera is among those caught up in the scandal.

He insists that his ‘conscience is clear’ and denies any wrongdoing.

However United manager Louis van Gaal, has said that Herrera could have been distracted by having the case hanging over him.

“The environment around a human being is very important,” he said. “When it is like that he will be influenced.”
