President of the Russian football club “Legion” Shamil Lakhiyalov spoke about corruption in refereeing.
“We do not work with bookmakers, teams and referees. This is contrary to our religion. Were there any proposals from the arbitrators? In the very first match, we received prices for judges. They immediately answered: let them not expect anything from us.
We had a man – he did not officially work for us at the headquarters, but at our request he received judges and placed them. So we learned: victory – 50 thousand, penalties – 10 thousand. It was seven or eight years ago, now I don’t know, ” Sport24 quotes Lakhiyalov .
Makhachkala “Legion” plays in the third strongest Russian league – the second division. This season, after 18 rounds, the team is 11th in Group 1 with 13 points.
