Watch: 'Statistically... Malta is one of the five most corrupt countries in football'

Birkirkara FC president Adrian Delia discusses the local battle against football match-fixing

The Malta Football Association is not doing all it can to stop match-fixers in their tracks, Birkirkara FC president Adrian Delia told Times Talk.

Dr Delia expressed dismay at the lack of progress in drafting new rules to fight corruption in football, railed against local football's culture of secrecy and said he felt more could be done to drive home a "zero tolerance" approach to the problem. 

Speaking to Times of Malta journalist Bertrand Borg, the Birkirkara FC president denied claims that he had "kidnapped" the club's former goalkeeper Miroslav Kopric when he suspected him of match-fixing and said another person has since handed police more information about the case.
