Belgian Soccer - inherently corrupt?
I'd be interested to know the full story, surely it'll come out soon enough, but eurosport.com report the following in their breaking news:-
Second division Geel will be relegated at the end of the season after the Belgian FA found the club guilty of attempting to bribe players.
(NB They will also start next season with a 6 point deduction)
Apparently if they finish in the relegation places, they will be relegated two divisions and start next season with a 12 point deduction.
I was also reading that GBA are the 6th Jupiler League side to come under investigation THIS SEASON after they walloped Lierse 4-0 - again something to do with the Chinese fella who owned Allianssi for a short while last season.
What a tangled web! I'd be grateful for any links or a general precis of what's happened to date if anybody's got one,
