Marseille Gignac transfer kickback investigation continues

Marseille President Vincent Labrune remained in custody for another day today as detectives continue to question him over the alleged kickbacks that third parties received from the transfer of Andre Pierre Gignac in 2010.

According to RMC, several other deals could also be under investigation, including the sale of Samir Nasri to Arsenal and the transfer of Didier Drogba to Chelsea. 

Former Sporting Director, manager and now Magreb ambassador to Marseille José Anigo offered this morning to give evidence, but according to his lawyer he will not be required to do so. Of the 15 individuals that were arrested yesterday, only one was released last night, his identity is unknown but he is believed to be an agent with some sort of administrative role. 

Alongside Vincent Labrune and former Marseille Presidents Pape Diouf and Jean-Claude Dassier, we can confirm that the Marseille club lawyer Henri Labi is also one of the 14 individuals who currently remains in custody over the case. 

The investigation continues. Follow all the latest developments with Get French Football News.
