Zimbabwean striker named in betting controversy
26-year-old Knowledge Musona is one of the suspects in a gambling controversy, which involves up to five players. The Belgian gambling commission identified suspicious betting patterns
during the match between KV Oostende and Waasland-Beveren. Musona, who plays for KV Oostende, reportedly bet on the game in question.
No sanctions so far
Anderlecht player Olivier Deschacht is the main suspect in the betting controversy as he reportedly placed bets on matches in which he was involved
. Officials with the Belgian gambling commission
have questioned Musona, and they notified his employer, KV Oostende, about the allegations. The Jupiler Pro League club has not taken any action against the Zimbabwean international.
The Belgian gambling commission launched an investigation last year, after Romain Reynaud had placed bets on the match between the Oud-Heverlee Leuven reserves and Waasland-Beveren. The French defender received a €500 fine for his betting. Musona confessed to the allegations, but it remains unclear what penalty the 26-year-old striker is facing for his involvement in the gambling controversy
