Greece?s culture minister says UEFA President Michel Platini has promised to send teams of experts to Athens this summer to help Greece reform its football leagues following a spate of fan violence at games and a match-fixing scandal.
Platini is on a brief visit to Athens and met Tuesday with Prime Minister George Papandreou and Pavlos Geroulanos, a minister for culture and sport.
Geroulanos says four teams of experts from European football’s governing body will head to Greece to provide advice on dealing with match-fixing, doping, violence and refereeing.
More than 60 Greek club officials, players, businessmen and others are under investigation in a corruption probe. Ten people were in custody on corruption charges.
