Xavi Torres, who was a former FC Barcelona youth and made his adult team debut, was sentenced by the Spanish Supreme Court to 10 months in prison, 22 months of player suspension, and a fine of 400,000 euros (approximately 535.61 million won).
Spain’s <As> reported this on the 20th (Korean time) and said, “Torres was already on the verge of renewing the contract at the age of 36. I was hit,” he said.
Previously, Torres played for Real Betis in the 2013-2014 season against two relegated teams in the last two matches of Spanish La Liga.
Along with teammate Antonio Amaya (retired), he was accused of accepting €650,000 in exchange for winning against Real Valladolid and intentionally losing to Osasuna to keep Osasuna alive. At that time, Osasuna was eventually relegated. 카지노사이트
Spanish prosecutors sought a two-year suspension, but the Supreme Court ruled that players can influence the content of a match, but that the outcome of a match depends on factors other than the player. As a result, Torres was sentenced to 22 months of suspension.
As Torres was eventually sentenced to prison, he was disgraced as an active professional sports player who was first convicted of sports corruption charges such as match fixing.
Torres, who grew up in Villarreal’s youth team, wore the Barcelona B jersey in 2007. In 2009, he was chosen by manager Josep Guardiola and was a promising player enough to make his first team debut. Although he did not succeed in Barcelona, he continued his long career in La Liga, Spain, such as Malaga CF, Levante UD, and Real Betis.
In the twilight of his career as a player, he was looking forward to retirement while wearing a Lugo uniform, and with this ruling, he retired in prison rather than on the pitch.
