Oscar punishment: Chinese FA asks FIFA for advice after mass brawl

The former Chelsea midfielder was at the centre of a mass brawl during Shanghai SIPG’s match against Guangzhou R&F but his punishment is up in the air

The Chinese Football Association (CFA) has written to FIFA, asking for advice on how best to punish former Chelsea midfielder Oscar.

The Shanghai SIPG playmaker was at the centre of controversy last weekend, as he appeared to deliberately smash the ball directly into two Guangzhou R&F players, sparking a mass brawl.

Two players were sent off in the ensuing chaos, but the CFA remain split on whether to charge Oscar for alleged violent conduct after a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday, despite a growing public outcry.

As such, the governing body has written to FIFA for help in determining which sanction would be appropriate.

Oscar was not present at the hearing, and subsequently appeared on compatriot Hulk’s Instagram, donning a t-shirt with the words “nothing to do, nothing to say”.
