It’s a story “made in Carpathian” which can make you smile, and which concerns a former resident of Ligue 1… Defender Edgar Ié, ex-player for Losc (2017-2019) and FC Nantes (2019) , is the subject of a rather unusual accusation from Dinamo Bucharest, the Romanian club he joined last February.

If the fixing is proven, Dinamo Bucharest could be heavily sanctioned and lose the 8 points won during the 5 matches played by the twin of Edgar Ié. And we are heading towards a very sad end to his career for the former Losc and FC Nantes defender, who was already without a club before his transfer to Romania… To be continued.
