Coach Nidzam Adzha Yusoff and six Kedah footballers were accused by a fan on Facebook of fixing the Malaysia Cup final match on November 4, in which the club suffered from a 2-0 defeat to Johor Darul Ta’zim.
According to reports from The New Straits Times, Facebook user Muhammad Ridzwan accused that coach Nidzam Adzha and the players had taken bribes to fix the match.
Nidzam Adzha’s lawyer, Datuk Iszam Kamal Ismail, said those named in the accusation by Muhammad Ridzwan met the police to give their statements on Saturday.
“All players will be called to give their statements on Saturday (tomorrow),” he said.
On the other hand, Iszam said police had contacted the Malaysia Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to obtain information on the owner of the Facebook account.
Meanwhile, Iszam gave Muhammad Ridzwan 14 days to turn up at any police station to give his statement.
