Atletico Madrid skipper Gabi offers stunning evidence in match-fixing investigation

Atletico Madrid skipper Gabi has given evidence in a match-fixing trial.

Gabi, whose man-of-the-match performance against Levante back on 21st May 2011 kept Real Zaragoza in the top flight, has admitted to the prosecutors investigating match-fixing allegations that the game was fixed.

"I did what the club asked me to," the current Atlético de Madrid captain confessed, according to reports in El Mundo.

El Mundo also reported that Gabi denied any personal interest in the payments made to Levante, as he had already agreed a move back to Atlético after four seasons at Zaragoza. He defended his actions saying that he simply did what he was told by the club that "bought" the game.
