Oscar Banned & Fined After Starting A Huge Brawl In The Chinese Super League

The Brazilian made 161 appearances for the Blues before his huge £60m move to Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG.

But the 25-year-old is set to miss eight games for his club after the Chinese Football Association (CFA) reviewed video of him sparking a huge fight.

Footage from the clash against Guangzhou R&F on Monday (June 19) shows the midfielder charging for a loose ball in the centre of the pitch.

As he gets there first, he boots the ball directly at an opposition player.

Not content with that, as it drops at his feet he smashes it again at another player. Furious at his behaviour, several of the opposition team run up to him before one shoves him to the ground.

Suddenly players, substitutes and coaches all plough onto the pitch as a mass brawl breaks out. There’s plenty of shoving and pushing as officials arrive to try to separate the teams.

But players continue to grapple with each other as team-mates try to drag them away. Two players were sent off following the fight while the ill-tempered match ended 1-1.

Reports suggest the CFA were initially unsure as to how to punish Oscar and wrote to FIFA asking for advice following a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday (June 21).

His ban now sees him unable to play in the Chinese Super League until August 13. He has also been ordered to pay a fine of $5,000.
