Ander Herrera’s ‘conscience is clear’ over La Liga match fixing

A TOTAL of 41 players have been charged for fixing a La Liga game between Real Zaragoza and Levante in May 2011.

Every player involved in the match, including Manchester United’s €30 million summer signing Ander Herrera, stands accused of conspiring to ensure Zaragoza won to avoid relegation on the final weekend of the 2010-11 season.

The public prosecutor Alejandro Luzon accused Zaragoza officials of paying €965,000 to Levante’s players to throw the game.

Herrera, who is accused of receiving €90,000 while he was playing for Zaragoza, has outrightly denied involvement.

He said: “I have never had and will never have anything to do with manipulating match results.

“If I am ever called to testify in any judicial hearing, I’ll be happy to attend, as my conscience is totally clear. I love football and I believe in fair play, both on and off the pitch.”
