When a football match goes into crazy scoring that a team is defeated 12-0, something is amissed somewhere. For Filippo di Pierro, the boss of Spanish third division side Eldense, he has a lot of explanations to make after his side’s 12-0 defeat by Barcelona’s B team on Saturday.
In an interview with Spanish radio station, Cadena Ser, Eldense defender Emmanuel Mendy said the club’s assistant coach, Fran Ruiz, had spoken to him about a plan to fix the game.
“He asked me if I was in and how much I wanted and if I wasn’t in then I wouldn’t play,” said Mendy.
Barcelona first-team coach Luis Enrique has also commented on the situation, which he described as “very delicate”.
