Ex-Super Eagles star, Sodje, implicated in UK match-fixing scandal

34year old ex-Super Eagles star, Sam Sodje is
currently been investigated in a match-fixing
scandal in the UK. Sam, who is the younger
brother of footballer Efe sodje, was allegedly
caught on tape telling an undercover reporter
with The Sun UK magazine that he was paid
£70,000 to be sent off the field during a
championship match on February 23rd 2013.
Footage from the football match showed Sam
Sodje hitting the crotch of Oldham Athletic's
player Jose Baxter, repeatedly for no reason
which ultimately earned him a red card. Sam
admitted to the undercover reporter that his
actions were all preplanned for him to be sent off
the pitch. He also said it was easy to get other
footballers to do same for a fee. Sam practically
ended his football career by collecting £12,000
from the undercover reporter, on tape, for other
match fixings.
The British Tabloid has reported its investigation
to the National Crime Agency, and NCA said an
active investigation is now underway.
