...it seems fixing games goes beyond Cyprus,

The report also refers to UEFA's efforts to effectively combat the phenomenon with the help of the Spanish police, which recently arrested more than 50 players, managers and other players involved in manipulating the results of matches in the Spanish second, third and fourth divisions.

According to the report, surveillance carried out by Spanish law enforcement found that the masterminds of the European match-fixing network were receiving information from their Cyprus link, AEK Larnaca’s attacking midfielder, Jorge Larena.

The far-reaching tentacles of the match-fixing network were highlighted by information in the report linked it with the assassination attempt on the retired Serb footballer Darko Kovačević in Athens last month.
