Deportivo begin legal proceedings against B team coach Munua

Deportivo La Coruna have begun legal proceedings against their B team coach Gustavo Munua, but have refused to terminate his contract.

The charges have come about after Munua was subject to an anti-corruption investigation, being the keeper when Real Zaragoza beat Levante on the final La Liga match-day in 2011.

The much talked about game is under heavy investigation by Spain’s anti-corruption authorities and it saw Deportivo relegated to the Segunda division.

El Pais report that the Galician club are now pressing criminal charges against those involved, which include Munua, currently coaching the B team.

Depor, however, are refusing to cancel his contract as they believe his performance in the game saw him have no part in any wrongdoings and therefore, receive no money for the victory.

The case, which has now rolled on for seven years, is expected to come to a head in the coming months, with those responsible being investigated at present.

Money in the region of 1m euros is reported to have been paid for the result, which kept Zaragoza in the top division and the case involves such high profile players like Manchester United’s Ander Herrera and Atletico Madrid’s Gabi, who played for the club at the time.
