Athletico Paranaense reported this Wednesday that it would indefinitely separate the players Pedrinho and Bryan García within the framework of the investigation being carried out by the Goiás Public Ministry for match fixing.

Both the winger Pedrinho and the midfielder Bryan García are being investigated, so the red and black team decided that, until the situation is clarified, the players will not play any more minutes. Goals have been investigated but also somewhat minor situations such as corners, yellows and even red cards.

Other teams involved

Paranaense is not the only team that separated players from its squad, Santos had already separated central defender Eduardo Bauermann, Fluminense had done the same with Vitor Mendes and Cruzeiro with Richard.

The investigation called Penalidade Máxima studies an organization that contacted players and offered from one thousand to two thousand dollars to the players to provoke certain situations as they required it. It is estimated that more than 120 players are implicated in this situation and some have already begun to testify in front of the ordinary courts of Brazil.
