Former Premier League manager Harry Redknapp is the latest high profile name to be linked with corruption in football after he was filmed saying his players bet on the result of one of their own games.
Football Association rules strictly forbid players from gambling on not only games they are involved in, but any professional game, with managers expected to report any such misconduct should they become aware of it.
The film suggests Redknapp only became aware of the betting after the game and when contacted by the Telegraph he said he was unaware of its illegality at the time.
Redknapp has managed West Ham, Portsmouth, Southampton, Tottenham and Queens Park Rangers but the newspaper does not state when the alleged match took place, or which club was involved.
He was also filmed seemingly talking about third-party ownership of players, which is also banned by the FA, as well as Fifa.
Redknapp denies all the allegations against him and told the paper when contacted that third-party ownership was “not something that I've ever been involved in, and it's not something that I'd want to get involved in”.
The accusations come after Sam Allardyce resigned from his role as England manager in the wake of claims he told undercover reporters it was possible to get around rules on player transfers.
England manager contenders
England manager contenders
1/6 Gareth Southgate - 6/4
Highly thought of by the decision-makers at the Football Association, the former Middlesbrough boss was brought into the fold to coach the Under-21s with an eye on future progression. Faltered at last year's Under-21 European Championship but led the team to victory at the Toulon tournament in the summer. Had no interest in succeeding Hodgson but takes charge for England's next four matches against Malta, Slovenia, Scotland and Spain while the FA looks for a permanent appointment.
2/6 Steve Bruce - 2/1
The former Manchester United defender was interviewed in the summer about the vacant England manager's job. Just days after speaking to the FA, Bruce decided to call time on his spell at Hull, where he had become the most successful manager in the club's history. He remains out of work.
3/6 Eddie Howe - 8/1
A smart, erudite and tactically-savvy coach who, at 38, looks to have a bright future at the top of the game. The manager has flourished at Bournemouth and only last week described coaching England as the "ultimate" job. "I would never say no," Howe said.
4/6 Alan Pardew - 8/1
Seemed to be a new man after swapping Newcastle for Crystal Palace and some fine early-season results saw him seriously linked with the England job for the first time in his career. Reached the FA Cup final but league results tailed off badly. A slow start to this campaign has been followed by three successive Premier League victories.
5/6 Jurgen Klinsmann - 10/1
The former Tottenham striker has managerial experience at international level, having been in charge of the United States for almost five years and Germany before that. America fell to a semi-final Copa America exit in the summer while Klinsmann guided Germany to the last-four stage at the 2006 World Cup.
6/6 Gary Neville - 25/1
Seemed a heavy favourite to progress from his role as Hodgson's assistant until his ill-advised stint with Valencia saw his stock plummet. It may yet be decided that was a case of the wrong job but the right man. Out of coaching since exiting with Hodgson during the summer, the videos of Allardyce appear to show him saying Neville was the "wrong influence" on his predecessor.
Barnsley assistant manager Tommy Wright was sacked on Thursday over claims he took an illegal payment for transfers while Southampton assistant Erik Black is currently suspended by the club.
QPR boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Leeds owner Massimo Cellino have also been accused by the paper.
