Brazilian club sacks two players for match fixing

Brazilian football club Athletico Paranaense has sacked players Bryan Garcia and Pedrinho. Both players have been charged with involvement in a match-fixing scandal in Brazilian football.

The two players are said to be involved in match fixing, in which players deliberately influence the course of matches in a certain way in exchange for money from criminals. “Integrity and ethics are irrevocable values ​​at Athletico Paranaense,” said the club from the southern city of Curitiba.

Athletico Paranaense, finalist of the Copa Libertadores in 2022, had already suspended the two players last Wednesday. In total, eight top-class players in Brazilian football have been suspended by their clubs and one player who played with Colorado Rapids in the United States due to involvement in the match-fixing. The Brazilian judiciary has charged sixteen people, including many football players.
