Ex-Eagles Star Under Investigation For Match Fixing

Former Super Eagles star Dickson Etuhu has come under investigation in Sweden for alleged match fixing. The former Manchester City, Blackburn, Fulham and Sunderland midfielder was accused of offering Kenny Stamatopoulos, a goalkeeper, about £180,000 to influence the result of a game between Gothenburg and AIK in May.

The matter became known after the goalkeeper revealed the plot allegedly by Etuhu to influence match results. The match was postponed by the Swedish Football Federation.

Etuhu, who played for AIK between 2015 and December 2016,  has been interviewed by detectives working for a special unit set up in Sweden to investigate sports-related organised crime, and he could be charged in the next four weeks if he is found guilty.
