The Ex-Man City midfielder and former Nigeria International escaped a jail sentence in Sweden following a court ruling on Wednesday.


A swedish court of Appeal has found the ex-premier league player Dickson Etuhu guilty of match fixing in the Allsvenskan (A  Swedish league).

Etuhu who was once a player for a swedish club top-flight AIK Solna between 2015 and 2016, was convicted of trying to influence his former teammate Kyriakos Stamatopoulos “Kenny” with huge amount of money in attempt to fix a game between AIK and IFK Gothenbury in May 2017.

Dickson Etuhu, was cleared by a court in Stockholm last December, of alleged match fixing, saying there was not enough evidence to hold Stamatopoulos.

The former Fulham Midfielder, Etuhu in Wednesday’s ruling escaped a jail sentence but was handed a fine and ordered to serve a period of probation.

“The content of what to the man submitted to the point (Stamatopoulos) was so clear that it should offer or bribe.” The Court stated.

37-year old Ex-Nigeria International will Appeal against the ruling at the Supreme Court.
