Up to now, due to the fact that Sun Zhunhao, the foreign aid of Shandong Taishan Team, was taken away for investigation, this anti-corruption storm against China football has been highly concerned by Korean netizens. Although the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Korean Football Association are all trying to rescue Sun Zhunhao through various channels, as Sun Zhunhao’s alleged crimes gradually became clear, the Korean media began to give in. Now they are most concerned about what kind of legal sanctions Sun Zhunhao will face. Moreover, the anti-corruption storm in China football has lasted for more than half a year. Eleven senior officials have been taken away for investigation within the China Football Association, including Chen Yuyuan, chairman of the Football Association, Du Zhaocai, deputy director of the General Administration of Sports, and others. In the anti-corruption investigation of the Super League, Sun Zhunhao’s Taishan team in Shandong Province is the hardest hit area, and so far seven people have been taken away for investigation.
Then, according to the latest news from the Korean media, in this anti-corruption, almost hundreds of people were arrested in the China Football Association and the Super League. It can be said that after this news was exposed, it still caused many China netizens to be shocked.
Although we all know that many football players have been taken away for investigation, the number of them exceeds hundreds, which is still enough to surprise everyone. However, it did happen that 70 people were taken away for investigation in two days. We must know that this anti-corruption investigation is not limited to the China Football Association and the Chinese Super League, but also the General Administration of Sports, the Chinese League and the Chinese League.
In addition, South Korea has been trying to rescue Sun Zhunhao, but China has made it very clear that Sun Zhunhao is suspected of accepting bribes from non-state employees, so China has not responded to many letters from the Korean Football Association. In addition, according to the Korean media donga, after failing to get a response, the Korean Football Association has begun to turn to FIFA, hoping to help solve Sun Zhunhao’s problem through FIFA.
After the anti-corruption of the China Football Association has taken away hundreds of people, in order to better carry out the work of the China Football Association, the candidate for the next president of the Football Association, which everyone continues to pay attention to, has finally taken shape. First of all, before this, Du Zhaocai, who was investigated, finally had someone to replace his position as deputy director of the General Administration of Sports. The General Administration of Sports recently appointed Zhang Jiasheng, former director of Hubei Sports Bureau and former vice governor of Zhejiang Province, as the position of deputy director of the General Administration of Sports.
And according to Li Xuan, a well-known football media person, he said before that there would be people from local sports bureaus coming to Beijing. In addition to Zhang Jiasheng, who has just served as the deputy director of the General Administration of Sports, there is another person who will be in charge of the China Football Association in the future.
So Li Xuan’s remarks, it is obvious that Gao Hongbo and Sun Wen, the two current vice presidents of the Football Association, will not be on the list of candidates for the new president of the Football Association. On the one hand, Sun Wen made it clear long ago that he is not interested in the president of the Football Association. On the other hand, Gao Hongbo, 57, will continue to be in charge of several core departments within the Football Association in the future, including the national brand competition, the whole youth training work, the youth training department of the men’s football team, the competition department and the referee department.
The new Football Association President will be selected from various local sports bureaus, and at present, because of Chen Xiaoyuan and the background of China Football Association President, he will not be a non-football professional like Chen Xiaoyuan, or at least this person must have many years of sports background in China.
