Congo said he was questioned about his relationships with some of the people being investigated by police.

The striker admitted knowing some of them but said he was not involved in anything potentially illegal.

Congo said he got to know them after getting involved in the business of buying and selling emerald.

The 43-year-old Colombian who had a brief stint with Madrid in 1999 after being signed amid high expectations from Colombian club Once Caldas said authorities had been following him for a long time and told him to “stay away from certain people.” He said he was treated very well by police.
