Former Norwich man admits to 'match fixing'

Former Norwich forward David Nielsen has admitted to 'match fixing' in his native Denmark. The Danish F.A is investigating.

Nielsen, who is now 32, told Danish TV show LPS that he 'threw' a game while playing for AaB against former club Copenhagen in 2004. Neilsen blamed gambling debts for his actions.

"This was during a period when I had just been involved in a playing scandal and had gambled a lot of money away, so when I got the chance to get some money back again, I took it,"-David Nielsen.

AaB lost in the Cup Final to FC Copenhagen in 04. The Danish F.A are investigating Nielsens claims.

Nielsen played for Norwich between 2001 and 2003. Initially he joined the Canaries on loan, scoring 5 goals in 5 games. The move from Wimbledon was made permanent in 2002. Neilsen scored 14 goals in 58 appearances for Norwich.

He is currently on loan at Stromsgodset in Norway.
