The former Chelsea midfielder has been slapped with a massive suspension for smashing a ball at two separate players deliberately
Former Chelsea attacker Oscar has been banned by the Chinese Football Association (CFA) for inciting a brawl in Shanghai SIPG’s 1-1 draw on Sunday.
The Brazilian kicked the ball violently and purposefully against two Guangzhou R&F players, resulting in a fight on the pitch between both sets of teams.
Oscar will now not be eligible to play in the Chinese Super League until August 13 while also receiving an additional $5,000 fine from the governing body of Chinese football.
The CAF were initially unsure as to how to punish the midfielder, and wrote to FIFA for advice following a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday.
Oscar did not attend that hearing, and was later pictured wearing a t-shirt with the words “nothing to do, nothing to say”.
Oscar has made 21 appearances for the Chinese club, scoring four goals and providing 10 assists.
