German Football Federation (DFB) Asks For Suspensions Of Six Players Posted: Thursday Jul 7, 2005 10:59 AM FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) - The German soccer federation's disciplinary panel asked Thursday for suspensions of six players suspected of being involved in the match-fixing scandal. All players, one of whom has since retired to become an assistant coach, are members of third or lower division clubs. The six have been named by Ante S., one of three Croatian brothers suspected of running the betting ring that that sought out referees and players to fix games, the DFB said. Ante S., whose last name has not been released by authorities, has been cooperating with Berlin prosecutors investigating the country's worst soccer corruption case in more than 30 years. Berlin prosecutors are investigating 25 people, including four referees and 14 players, suspected of fixing at least 10 games, mostly in lower divisions. The scandal broke in January, when referee Robert Hoyzer admitted receiving money to fix games. He has been banned for life. Prosecutors have not charged anyone yet in the scandal.
