FIFA extends Sammut, Edusei bans for match-fixing worldwide

  • Print

ZURICH - FIFA has extended the sanctions imposed on Kevin Sammut and Mark Edusei for match-fixing to prevent them from playing anywhere in the world.

Sammut was found guilty by UEFA of colluding with a fixing syndicate in June 2007 to help manipulate Malta's Euro 2008 qualifier in Norway. Malta lost 4-0.

His life ban by UEFA was reduced to 10 years by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in May.

Ghanaian player Mark Edusei was suspended for three years and six months by the Italian football federation in May for his role in fixing a Serie B match in 2009. Edusei's team, Bari, lost 3-2 to Salernitana.

FIFA adds in a statement Monday that it "continues to work closely with its member associations and the confederations to tackle match manipulation."
