Investigation into Bulgarian referees betting patterns

UEFA makes enquiries on referee after ‘irregular betting patterns’

The European football governing body UEFA has announced that investigations into a possible case of corruption are in progress against a Bulgarian referee.

Anton Genov has been named as the subject of the investigation after irregular betting patterns emerged regarding an international friendly last month, UEFA said on Wednesday.

“Following obvious irregular betting patterns on the Macedonia v Canada (friendly) on 14 November, and after interviewing the referee in question, UEFA has decided not to appoint Anton Genov to any European matches until further notice while more investigations are carried out,” UEFA announced in a statement.

In the match, four penalties were awarded, two to each side, during Macedonia’s 3-0 victory, according to Reuters news agency reports.
