Player Fined About N2.5m, Banned For Slapping Opponent

Henan Songshan Longmen player Wang Shangyuan has been banned for three matches after slapping a Shandong Luneng player in a Chinese Super League game.

The 27-year-old midfielder was spotted slapping Shandong Luneng forward Guo Tianyu in the face when the latter was arguing with Wang’s teammate Luo Xin.

The incident was recorded in the 89th minute of the 1-1 draw between Shandong and Henan on Sunday.

The former Eendracht Brugge player’s misdemeanour “could bring about adverse social impact”, the statement wrote.(Xinhua/NAN)
