Soccer Players Arrested in ‘Match-Fixing’ Investigation
LONDON (AP) — Blackburn says striker D.J. Campbell is one of the six people arrested in English soccer’s latest match-fixing investigation.
The arrests came after an investigation by The Sun on Sunday newspaper.
While Blackburn confirmed Campbell’s arrest on its website, the club said it was prevented was commenting further because it is an ongoing legal matter. Blackburn plays in the second-tier League Championship, one step below the Premier League.
The 32-year-old Campbell has previously played in the Premier League for Birmingham, Blackpool and Queens Park Rangers.
Another investigation last month, by the Daily Telegraph, led to two players from the sixth tier being charged with conspiring to fix matches.
