The club president of Deportivo La Coruna on Thursday denied allegations that his team was involved in fixing a recent league match, but claimed fixing has been common in Spain.
Deportivo president Augusto Lendoiro said his team "had nothing to do" with any involvement in allegedly fixing its 4-0 win at Levante on April 13, a game the Spanish league is investigating.
Levante has also denied any wrongdoing. Following the match, Levante forward Jose Barkero apparently accused four of his teammates of a suspicious lack of effort. He later retracted the accusations.
