Clifford Malgas, on Thursday appearing in a Soweto court, was allegedly involved in match-fixing, a report said.

National team assistant coach Phil Setshedi was sentenced to 36 months in jail in 2012 for the same scandal.

Claims of lower-league corruption are common in the host country of the 2010 World Cup as clubs promoted to the top tier bank at least 115,000 euros each month.
