LaLiga Phone conversations were intercepted by police
Recorded conversations between those involved in Spanish football’s match-fixing case prove that corruption took place between Real Valladolid‘s home clash with Valencia on the final day of the season in LaLiga Santander.
Raul Bravo, Carlos Aranda and Borja Fernandez have all been released on bail after appearing before a judge, having been charged with corruption in sport and other crimes.
Spanish newspaper El Mundo have exclusively published these recordings that were intercepted by police.
“Seven players were bribed, no more,” Aranda told a person on the phone.
“Bet 10,000 euros and you will win 20,000 euros,” Aranda said in the same conversation.
These phrases, along with other indications, prove that match-fixing took place during this match, which was crucial in deciding the final Champions League place.
El Mundo also report that Raul Bravo went to meet Borja Fernandez in Valladolid, while there is also evidence of a meeting amongst players that was hosted in Valladolid winger Keko Gontan‘s house.
Aranda also told a friend about the match.
“Look mate, Valencia are winning the first half and the second, ok?” he said on the phone.
“Listen to me, they’re winning the first and second half, ok?
“So, they win the first half and the match as well; not that they win, that they have to score two goals in two halves, that they win the first and second…
“Look, you know what it is, no one can know, but you know what it is. No one. No one means no one; no one, not your friends, not anyone.”
