Atletico Madrid captain Gabi is in very hot water this morning, after he admitted to his part in match fixing during his time at Real Zaragoza.
Gabi admitted, at the facilities of the Attorney General against Corruption and Organized Crime, that “I did what the club asked me to do”, having scored two goals in Real Zaragoza’s 2-1 win over Levante in 2011.
The midfielder has chosen to collaborate, admitting the facts and defending himself by blaming it on the club who gave him the orders.
It is reported that 12 Levante players were each paid €120,000 to throw the game.
Captain at Real Zaragoza, Gabi is one of many currently under investigation surrounding the 2-1 win against Levante.
The Atletico Madrid star was left out of last night’s 1-0 win over Juventus and the confession could result in a serious lengthy ban for Gabi.
El Mundo were the first to break the news but many Spanish sites have since followed suit.
