Former Nigerian international Dickson Etuhu has been found guilty of attempting to fix a match in Sweden’s top division by an appellate court.
The 37-year-old Etuhu was said to have attempted to conspired in company of another man to offer former team-mate Kyriakos “Kenny” Stamatopoulos money to fix a game between AIK and IFK Gothenburg back in spring 2017.
“What preceded the meeting and what was said at the meeting must be seen in a context. In the opinion of the court, Kenny Stam has clearly been offered an improper benefit,” the Court Of Appeal in Stockholm said in its judgement published on Wednesday.
The Stockholm District court has previously cleared the former Manchester City man of any wrong doing, saying there was not enough evidence evidence to prove he offered Stamatopoulos money during their time with AIK.
Etuhu however disclosed that he will be appealing the ruling after carefully study the Court’s pronouncement wih his cancel.
Etuhu, played for Nigeria at the 2010 world cup in South African and played for Manchester City, Norwich, Sunderland, Fulham and Blackburn in the premier league.
