SEOUL - Two players in South Korea's
K-League are at the centre of match-fixing allegations as
negative headlines about corruption in global football continue to
plague the sport.
An official at Changwon district prosecutors' office in
South Gyeongsang province told Reuters by telephone the two
unnamed players were paid up to 120 million won ($109,000) to
help their sides lose in April.
The prosecution were seeking arrest warrants for the players
while two brokers, including a former K-League player, had
already been arrested.
"The players are suspected of fixing the game results for
monetary compensation," said the official.
South Korean media estimated the country's underground
gambling industry is worth some 88 trillion won.
