Eldense coach Filippo Vito di Pierro arrested after defeat to Barcelona B

Italian coach di Pierro was detained following the brutal defeat - which equalled the record margin of victory for the division.

Di Pierro's arrest came after Eldense president David Aguilar denounced the 12-0 loss and asked for help from the Spanish police and La Liga. Spanish media said the Italian was in the process of having his head-coaching license certified.

The Eldense board subsequently requested the league launch an investigation into possible match-fixing, while in a statement, they also revealed their intention to sever ties with an Italian investment group who had partnered with the club.

Following the development, the club said it would not play any more matches this season, but later backtracked and confirmed the fixtures would be honoured.

Mauritanian striker Cheikh Saad told Spanish radio station RAC1 via ESPN FC on Monday: 'There are four players involved in match fixing.

"Half an hour before playing the game against Barcelona B I was starting, but then I was out of the lineup".

"I told the other bench players not to warm up because it was clear the game was fixed. I didn't know what to do, I was between a rock and a hard place", Ruiz said.

According to Saad, the coach later asked him to enter the pitch, but he refused after overhearing that the match had been fixed for betting purposes. "Were opponents involved? I don't know, they did what they had to do - score goals".

A spokesman for the investment group, Jose Miguel Esquembre, said: "The board does not have the capacity to suspend the activity of CD Eldense. I don't even trust my own shadow at the moment", added the President of the 96-year-old club. "What we saw was not football and I was tremendously ashamed".

"There are four players who are implicated in the match-fixing".

Eldense has played three straight seasons in the third division.

"There have been very unusual things going on".
