LA Liga Prosecuters Want Ander Herrera Jailed For Four Years For Alleged Match Fixing

share on:

According to reports, La Liga prosecutors are pushing for Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera and other footballers to be jailed for four years over alleged match-fixing.

Ander Herrera has denied any wrongdoing after being implicated alongside 35 footballers in an investigation into corruption, relating to a La Liga match between Zaragoza and Levante in May 2011.

According to Las Provincias, La Liga prosecutors are demanding in their indictment presented to Valencia’s Court of Instruction Number Eight that if found guilty, the footballers involved should be hit with a four-year prison sentence.

State prosecutors believe that a two-year term and six-year ban from professional football would be sufficient, but under Spanish law, a sentence less than 24 months can be suspended, meaning that it is unlikely that Herrera would spend any time behind bars.
