Barcelona make history! This is a brilliant sign for club's future

Eldense had an appallingly bad season, with seven coaches and 52 players employed, as well as three presidents passing through the club in less than a year.

'Half an hour before playing the game against Barcelona B I was starting, but then I was out of the line up.

"We are going to look into it because the Eldense board have asked us to and the result at half-time [8-0] was out of the ordinary", Tebas told reporters.

"At the very least we must investigate it because there are certain links to an Italian group that has the look of what may be indications of an global betting ring when it comes to fixing matches", said president of the Spanish league Javier Tebas.

On Sunday an unused Eldense substitute had claimed that some players involved in the game had deliberately thrown it.

The club have collected just 14 points this season and Saturday's astounding loss ensured they will drop to the Tercera Division, with fears arising that the game was fixed.

"I told him I didn't want to, and I also told my teammates on the bench to not go into the field if they didn't want their names to become tarnished", he added.




Cheikh Saad said that four players were involved, according to Sport.

Now that's a loss, folks. Emmanuel Mendy is another player who refused to warm up and did not participate in the game because he knew what had happened.

"It's exclusively related to Eldense", he said. "They did what they had to do, score goals".

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Club Deportivo Eldense is a Spanish football team based in Elda, Spain.

Televised images from the match showed some of Barcelona's team consoling a Eldense player in tears after the final whistle.

On the face of it, there was not a huge surprise that Barcelona B, who are top of the Segunda Division, beat the bottom side, Eldense, who saw their relegation confirmed in the process.
