Aguirre match-fixing row puts Japan in a jam


TOKYO: Japan’s football chief admitted on Saturday that they wouldn’t have hired Javier Aguirre as manager of the national team if they had been aware of the match-fixing scandal currently engulfing the former Mexico coach. Aguirre and 28 players are among those set to be summoned to appear in court in Valencia next year after a probe into a match played in May 2011 between Zaragoza and Levante. Aguirre, who was coach of Zaragoza at the time, vehemently denied any wrongdoing in an emergency meeting with the JFA on Friday.
