Zimbabwe officials & players face life ban in match-fixing scandal

Fifa president Sepp Blatter has hinted that all those found guilty in a match-fixing scandal involving Zimbabwe and some Asian countries will be banned for life.

"We cannot intervene at the first stage, we must let the jurisdictional organisation of the different states [take action] and when these people are condemned and found guilty then we will suspend them for life," the supremo said when he made a stopover in the southern Africa country on his way to South Africa for an International Olympic Committee meeting.

The story is too old to be commented.
