Man Utd midfielder named in alleged Spanish match fixing allegations

Manchester United's Ander Herrera has been named in an alleged case of match-fixing involving a La Liga game in Spain in the 2010-11 season, reports Sky Sports. Others named by Spanish prosecutors on Monday include Japan coach Javier Aguirre and Atletico Madrid captain Gabi.

Midfielder Herrera, 25, and Gabi were playing for Spanish side Real Zaragoza - and coached by Aguirre - at the time.

The allegations of match-fixing revolve around a match between Zaragoza and Levante on the final day of the 2010-11 La Liga season.

The match, played at Levante, was won 2-1 by Zaragoza, who as a result avoided relegation to the second division.

The Spanish prosecutor's office filed charges with a Valencia court on Monday alleging the Levante players were paid to lose.
