Zero tolerance from Swansea boss towards match fixing

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup wants life bans for anyone found guilty of match-fixing. "If someone gets caught being paid to lose a game, they should be banned for life," said the Dane.

"This sport is about winning, if you receive money to lose a game you should be banned."

The allegation of widespread corruption in football has come from Europol, which began an inquiry into match-fixing 18 months ago.

"If you are a player or a manager, if you get paid to lose a game you should be banned forever," he said.

"Then players would think about the risk of getting caught, it's quite a risk to take if you are banned for life - not like cycling where you may take something but get banned for a year or two, it should be for life."
