Fans of Wuhan’s Guanggu FC demonstrate with blackened ball
China’s main TV station has stopped broadcasting matches from the country’s top football league, accusing players of lacking “professional ethics”.
China Central TV (CCTV) has temporarily pulled the plug on a league that seems constantly beset with problems.
A scuffle broke out between players of two top teams last week, while another team has been ejected from the league. The head of CCTV’s sports channel says the league must improve before it is allowed back on air.
Mr Jiang said the ban was only a temporary measure and did not mean CCTV would completely abandon the Chinese Super League.
Among fans of proper football, we call this the Italian model.
