Just a month after Ligue 2 side Nimes were hit with a match-fixing scandal which suggested they had paid certain clubs cases of wine in order to pre-arrange a result which would be mutually beneficial for both parties, another scandal emerged today.
According to exclusive reports from Le Parisien, an intermediary, supposedly Abdelnasser Ouadah who currently works as a football consultant for the France Televisions network, approached former Montpellier and then Istres player Cyril Jeunechamp to play poorly against Nimes on the 33rd game-day of last season’s Ligue 2.
The player was to be offered in return a contract with Nimes at the end of the season.
Jeunechamp is said to have refused the proposal, but the pressure mounts on Nimes. More undoubtedly to follow in the coming days.
