Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera facing trial over alleged match-fixing

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is facing trial over claims he was involved in an alleged match-fixing scandal.

The Red Devils enforcer has been dragged into a long-running investigation into claims a LaLiga game between Real Zaragoza and Levante was rigged in 2011.

The Sun report investigators in Spain have spent over three years looking into the match at Levante – which ended in a 2-1 win for relegation threatened Zaragoza, keeping them in La Liga and sending Deportivo La Coruna down instead.

Herrera was a Zaragoza player at the time, and prosecutors in Spain believe some in the squad could have been party to a deal which allegedly saw cash payments made to Levante players.

The Spanish international, who strongly denies any wrongdoing, has been warned he faces being ordered to court to explain why he is said to have received two large payments from his club, which he is then said to have immediately paid back in cash to his bosses

He is one of 33 other players, including Atletico Madrid captain Gabi, linked to the case which investigators at Valencia’s Provincial Court want to bring to trial this summer.
