Montpellier lawyer admits players placed bets

PARIS -- The lawyer of Nikola Karabatic and his brother Luka, who were both detained on Sunday, admitted the Montpellier handball club players had placed bets on a game but denied any match-fixing.

Several players, including Nikola Karabatic, who led France to their back-to-back Olympic titles in 2008 and this year, have been arrested after an investigation into an alleged match-fixing scandal.

"They will admit betting ... They placed bets," Karabatic's lawyer Eric Dupont-Moretti told French radio RTL on Monday when asked if the brothers and other Montpellier players involve would recognize having bet on a French league game.

"But the match-fixing case has to be proven. It is up to the prosecutor to provide evidence. And I say that these men strongly deny having fixed this game," he added. "There is no criminal case here."
