New bribery scandal in top football league emerges

The police are investigating a man who allegedly gave a 50,000-crown bribe to a football player from one of teams in the country’s top Gambrinus league to under-perform in a match last year. The police have not released the name of the person under investigation, but a number of news sites, including and Aktuálně.cz servers, have reported that sources in football circles speculate that it may be Roman Rogoz, manager of the Příbram team. This newest scandal comes only months after the anti-corruption police charged three people in connection with alleged bribery at a Gambrinus league match in the previous season. That case is still open, and the police have not confirmed the names of the accused.
