Red Card of the Week: All Those Charged with Match-Fixing in England

Will Tidey@willtideySenior Manager, GlobalDecember 11, 2013

A match-fixing scandal has hit English football. As per the BBC, six arrests have been made related to alleged corruption, and they include a couple of high-profile names.

We won't go into details, but we will say what should happen to anybody found guilty of influencing football matches for profit.

The credibility and honesty of the game we love is at risk here. Anybody who has perpetrated match-fixing deserves to be harshly punished and banned from any future involvement in the game.

An obvious one, maybe, but a point worth making nonetheless.
