La Liga president Javier Tebas has expressed displeasure over the alleged match-fixing that took place in Spanish football
Tebas believes that stamping corruption out of the game is a priority following the recent arrests in the Spanish top flight.
A number of figures were detained by police on Tuesday morning – Raul Bravo, Borja Fernandez, Carlos Aranda, Sami Saiz, Inigo Lopez, and the Huesca president – due to match-fixing suspicions.
“This has come from a LaLiga complaint,” Tebas told MARCA.
“We’ve been working on this for over a year.
“We can’t say anything because the police are doing their job.
“It’s very painful but what’s most important is that we end corruption in football.”
LaLiga and Spanish police have been working together for four years in an attempt to target match-fixing, monitoring betting patterns on sports that go beyond football.
