Furious Arsenal ponder legal action against French TV station over Interpol claims
08 Feb, 2011
Arsenal are ready to take legal action against the French TV station after it reported the dramatic 4-4 draw against Newcastle on Saturday was under suspicion of match-fixing, reports the Daily Mail.
The Gunners went 4-0 up at St James’ Park but only managed a draw after a stirring second-half comeback from the Magpies.
And France 2 over the weekend reported the Barclays Premier League clash was being looked at by Interpol over allegations of ‘strange movements of money.’
But Interpol this morning denied the broadcaster’s claims insisting there was no such investigation, while the Premier League have not been made aware of any betting irregularities in connection with the match.
And now the furious north London club is seeking advice over the allegations with a view to starting legal proceedings against the channel.
