Atleti star quizzed over allegations of match fixing.
Atletico Madrid captain Gabi has found himself in hot water this week after he admitted to playing his part in alleged match fixing during his time at Real Zaragoza, Marca reports.
Gabi admitted, at the facilities of the Attorney General against Corruption and Organized Crime, that “I did what the club asked me to do”, having scored two goals in Real Zaragoza’s 2-1 win over Levante in 2011.
The midfielder has decided to collaborate with law enforcement and have placed the majority of the blame at the door of his former club, insisting that he was only acting on orders.
It is believed that up to 12 Levante players were each paid €120,000 to throw the game.
He was left out of Wednesday night’s Champions League clash with Serie A giants Juventus as the claims were investigated further.
