UEFA admits the Racing-Hércules was rigged
According to the newspaper El Mundo, the highest continental football body, UEFA, assures that the players of Racing de Santander and the Hércules Club de Fútbol rigged the Second Division match they played last 8 June in El Sardinero, corresponding to last season, to profit financially from betting.
the meeting, crucial for a Racing that was in a position to take advantage of the administrative descent of Guadalajara, ended with a 3-0 in favor of local. The result did not prevent, but nevertheless, the relegation to Second B of the Cantabrian team, who is currently at risk of disappearing due to his precarious economic situation.
The opinion that the UEFA bloodhounds have made, who comb the European bets every weekend from their headquarters in Nyon (Switzerland), it is devastating. ensures that “the two teams are implicated in the manipulation of the match that took place on Saturday 8 June 2013 in El Sardinero”.
Given such news published in such prestigious media, the question is what should be done now with both teams? In Italy, Juventus dropped to Serie B just seven seasons ago due to irregularities in their matches. It would be normal for the same thing to be done here., although knowing the precarious situation of both teams, It would not be surprising if it meant the end of both sets.
shame, but you know, fair play must reward and UEFA and the LEAGUE act with strength to avoid situations as unfortunate as the one that occurred.
