Lundekvam ready to talk to FIFA

Published Add your comment

Former Southampton skipper Claus Lundekvam is ready to talk to FIFA as they investigate his claims that he, team-mates and opposing captains were involved in betting fraud - something he now describes as "innocent fun".

In an interview in a Norwegian newspaper, Lundekvam said the players manipulated incidents such as the first throw-in for betting purposes. The world governing body announced on Wednesday they will investigate the claims.

Lundekvam told The Sun: "Of course I will talk to FIFA - I have no problem with that. Unfortunately I've been honest about it, so I need to."
