WHAT a shame. As die-hard football fans, we have been taken for a ride after reports surfaced of substantial evidence of organised crime operating in the world of football.
At the centre of this corruption and match-fixing menace is a crime syndicate based in Singapore.
The probe showed that nearly 700 games in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America between 2008 and 2011 were fixed
We also had two President Cup coaches charged with match-fixing. Eighteen players and 13 officials were allegedly caught for match-fixing in 2010 and 2011.
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and police need to keep an eye on them because criminal gangs and bookies may infiltrate football officials, players, coaches and referees.
