FIFA probes South African, others over match-fixing

FIFA’s ethics watchdog has opened formal proceedings against ex-South African football chief, Kirsten Nematandani and two other functionaries for allegedly fixing international friendlies in 2010, it said on Wednesday.
The adjudicatory chamber of FIFA’s independent Ethics Committee said it opened cases against Nematandani, former Zimbabwe Football Association official, Jonathan Musavengana and former Togo national team coach, Bana Tchanile.
Reuters reported that a FIFA investigator last week proposed at least a six-year ban and 10,000 Swiss franc ($10,340) fine for Nematandani over alleged ethics violations.
The investigator, Djimbaraye Bourngar, had also recommended life bans for Musavengana and Tchanile for alleged bribery and corruption violations.
The three officials will now be invited to submit their positions and may request a hearing, the adjudicatory chamber said in a statement.
Tchanile has already been banned from soccer for three years by his national federation after taking a team masquerading as the Togo national side to play a friendly with Bahrain in 2010.
