Victor Anichebe Reports Own Club To FIFA Over Alleged Match-Fixing

Victor Anichebe Reports Own Club To FIFA Over Alleged Match-Fixing
Nigeria forward, Victor Anichebe, has reported his own club, Beijing Enterprises, to FIFA over allegations of match-fixing.
The former Everton and West Brom striker according to a report in the dailymail lodged the complaint after alleging he was asked ‘not to try’ by coaches on two occasions, including for a game against their local rivals.
Anichebe questioned the instruction but claimed he was told by team-mates:
‘This is China, we do as we’re told.’
The 30-year-old has been in dispute with the club since last October and sought legal advice to take up his case.
Manchester-based sports lawyer Chris Farnell approached Beijing’s general manager on Anichebe’s behalf but his appeals for action have been ignored on two occasions and action has still to be taken.
While Anichebe never refused to play, the dispute has cost him a year of his playing career, one where he could have laid claim to a World Cup place with Nigeria, had he played regularly at a competitive level.
Now Anichebe has taken the complaint — which is still to be denied by the club — to FIFA and he hopes the world football governing body will take action.
Chinese football has been blighted by match-fixing allegations in the past.
