Former Chelsea star Oscar suspended for eight games after sparking brawl

AND THE OSCAR GOES TO! WELL OSCAR 😂

China Football Association has handed down a hefty ban on Shanghai SIPG star Oscar. The punishment is due to instigating a massive fight between SIPG and Guangzhou R&F.

Oscar has also been slapped with a RMB40,000 (USD5,000) fine, but like that’s gonna matter. The Brazilian attacking midfielder is swimming in the cash.

The Chinese Football Association released this statement on the matter.

“Oscar’s immoral foul has had a huge negative impact on China’s professional football leagues.”

“The CFA always attaches great importance to the issue of discipline. Taking great pains to root out the violent fouls and other unsportsmanlike behaviour.”
