Bizarre story lives on with Ander’s football future to be decided next year
•The scandal is all about the Real Zaragoza’s 2-1 win over Levante that saw Deportivo relegated as a consequence. Herrera was part of the Zaragoza team back in 2011.
•Spanish state prosecutors are now demanding a two-year prison sentence and a six-year ban from football for the 36 players involved in the game.
•Two-year sentences are normally suspended for first-time offenders in Spain but lawyers from La Liga demanded stiffer penalties of four-year prison sentences if one is found guilty of sports corruption.
•The indictment is still calling for the six-year ban from all footballing activity if the named players are convicted.
•The trial set to start at the beginning of next year.
•Ander has previously released a statement claiming he has never been part of match fixing.
