UEFA gives Kevin Sammut life ban for match-fixing

more-in

Malta international Kevin Sammut has been banned from football for life after UEFA found him guilty of helping fix a European Championship qualifying match in a betting scam.

Sammut denies colluding with a Croatian-led match-fixing syndicate in June 2007 to manipulate Malta’s 4-0 loss in Norway in a Euro 2008 qualifier.

Sciriha said Sammut must receive UEFA’s detailed legal reasons before deciding whether to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The 31-year-old Sammut challenged a 10-year ban imposed by UEFA’s disciplinary panel in August. The governing body also appealed to request a lifetime sanction.
