The reason why the agency opened the file has to do with an alert from the English Football Association, who detected an unusual gambling pattern in the match between Leeds United and Arsenal last December.

Xhaka received a yellow card for time-wasting

England’s National Crime Agency launched an investigation into a yellow card that Granit Xhaka received due to a suspicious bet. The reason why the agency opened the file has to do with an alert from the English Football Association, who detected an unusual gambling pattern in the match between Leeds United and Arsenal last December. During the match between the Gunners and the Whites, which ended 4-1 in Arsenal’s favour, the Swiss player received a yellow card for time-wasting. This is the reason why the FA decided to alert the National Crime Agency for a strange bet. Now, six months after the game was played, the yellow card for time-wasting with four minutes left in the game is still the subject of discussion in England, as the bookmaker reported an unusual issue with a bet of 65,000 pounds for Xhaka to be yellow carded in the game.

The result was that the 29-year-old’s booking gave 250,000 pounds to the fan

The bookmaker informed the FA that something strange had happened, as one person had put 65,000 pounds on the Swiss player receiving a yellow card. The result was that the 29-year-old’s booking gave 250,000 pounds to the fan, who was confident that the Arsenal player would receive the caution before the end of the match. It has to be mentioned that the payout for the card was better in the last 10 minutes of the match than at the start of the game, which added to the suspicion. So far, there is still no talk of the midfielder being involved, but the bet is being analysed.

 

“This bet was pointed out to all bookmakers because it was huge, and it paid out. The investigation is looking at the bet rather than Xhaka’s behaviour; it is not unusual for him to get a card at all,” a betting source told The Sun. The Swiss received ten cautions and one red last season. But that’s not all, as he has a total of 126 yellows (51 with Arsenal), seven double cautions and seven dismissals in 501 appearances at the club level.
