Former Hap Kfar Saba goalkeeper's performance in 3-3 Premier League draw against Mac Haifa under suspicion in matchfixing scandal.
Former Hapoel Kfar Saba player Oshri Levy continues to be one of the protagonists in the Premier League matchfixing scandal. The released goalkeeper is now the subject of a police investigation, despite going through two independent polygraph tests. Levy's performance in the 3-3 Premier League draw against Maccabi Haifa is under suspicion. He conceded three goals in bizarre fashion and was later caught on videotape collecting money at a kiosk that allegedly takes illegal sports bets. Weitzman Ya'ar, the Israel Football Association's official investigation agency, produced enough proof to convince IFA chairman Itzhak "Itche" Menahem to file a criminal complaint against the player.
