Benitez surprised at Debrecen fixing allegations

Rafa Benitez has said he is surprised that Liverpool’s 1-0 win against Debrecen in the Champions League back in 2009 is under investigation as part of a match fixing inquiry.

Benitez was Liverpool manager at the time and although there are no accusations against Liverpool, there are suspicions about their opponents.

“I’m surprised, though it was nothing to do with [Liverpool],” Benítez said. “We went out to win the game, and we did. I didn’t remember [anything suspicious]. It was a game we had to win, and we approached it to do just that.

“The fact it was 1-0 means it was quite difficult. I think that it’s fantastic that the investigation is taking place, analysing those 300-odd games. If they find something then OK. If not, even better. But it’s important to clarify things. I’m very happy with that.”
