Report: Liverpool UCL Match Under Europol Investigation

TAGS:  england, uefa champions league


A UEFA Champions League between Liverpool and Hungarian club Debrecen in 2009 has been reported as one of the Champions League games that could be under investigation by Europol, which on Monday said it was investigating more than 380 games for possible game-fixing. According to Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet, Europol is looking at the Hungarian team, not Liverpool, as Vukasin Poleksic, the Debrecen goalkeeper that night, was banned for two years in 2010 by UEFA for failing to report match-fixing activities in a different game.

However, despite the report linking that game to the Europol investigation, none of the 380 games the European law enforcement agency is looking into have yet been revealed. Liverpool, UEFA and the English Football Association have all said that they are unaware of any probes into any suspicious Champions League games.

Rob Wainwright, director of Europol - the European Union's law enforcement agency, told a news conference on Monday that 425 referees, club officials, players, and serious criminals, from more than 15 countries, are suspected of being involved in attempts to fix games.
