Belgium football is currently in a high profile mess.
Wednesday saw police swoop on several clubs, gathering evidence and interviewing club officials, agents and even referees.
The investigation centres around money laundering and match fixing, but it’s not the only one going on right now with relation to a high profile figure in Belgian football.
De Tijd report that a criminal complaint has been made, and subsequent investigation opened, regarding agent Christophe Henrotay and several transfers, including that of Leander Dendoncker to Wolves this summer.
The midfielder turned defender hasn’t yet had chance to break through at Wolves, and that’s been making the news in Belgium, but now the Henrotay situation will probably dwarf it for a while.
There’s no suggestion of any wrongdoing from Wolves, the allegations come from Peter Smeets, a Belgian coach who helped provide guidance to young footballers under Henrotay’s umbrella.
Smeets split with the agent this year and filed a criminal complaint claiming money from transfers, including that of Dendoncker to Wolves, hasn’t been distributed as it should have.
