Football scandals: The ugly side of the beautiful game

Three were detained for questioning over the 2010 transfer of a player from Toulouse to Marseille and in a separate investigation, nine others were arrested over alleged match-rigging. Also, more and more people are sleeping rough in France: that number is up 44% since 2001, according to the latest figures which estimate that over 110,000 people have no home to go to.
