The game saw Deportivo La Coruna relegated after Zaragoza won 2-1 and while any possible trial is not expected for another six months, Herrera broke his silence on Thursday with a statement.
“As I stated back in 2014 when this issue was raised, I have never had and will never have anything to do with manipulating match results,” Herrera said. “If I am ever called to testify in a judicial hearing, I will be delighted to attend as my conscience is totally clear.
“I love football and I believe in fair play, both on and off the pitch.”
Spanish newspaper Las Provincias claim the 42 people involved could face prison sentences ranging anywhere from six months to four years if found guilty.
