A Swedish Court of appeal has found Dickson Etuhu guilty of attempted match-fixing in the Swedish top division league.

The ex-Manchester City and Nigeria international was convicted for attempting to influence former teammate Kyriakos Stamatopoulos with money in 2017.

The former Sunderland and Fulham midfielder was cleared of the alleged match-fixing charge in December last year for a lack of enough evidence.

According to reports, the Appeals court in a ruling on Wednesday found the 37-year old guilty, though he will pay a fine and serve a period of probation without any jail term.

“The content of what the men submitted to the player (Stamatopoulos) was so clear that it should be considered a criminal offer of a bribe, ” the Court stated.

Dickson Etuhu featured for AIK Solna in the Swedish top-flight between 2015 and 2016.

The incident is said to have occurred in May 2017 where Etuhu attempted to convince his former teammate to fix a game between AIK and IFK Gothenburg in May 2017.
