Chinese clubs enter the “Black” List due to Salary Arrears
A total of 13 Chinese Super League clubs, reportedly Mirror and Daily Mail, are in danger of being dropped from the 2018 contestants list due to financial problems Bandar Bola.
The possibility comes after a meeting between the Chinese Football Federation (CFA) and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), 11 July 2017.
The meeting concluded that a number of clubs are in arrears of player salaries.
That would be an irony when teams from the Bamboo Curtain Party were spending heavily on the transfer market.
Take for example Shanghai SIPG, which acquired Oscars and Hulk for a total value of 115.8 million euros.
Or, there is also Shanghai Shenhua who poured 615,000 pounds per week to pay Carlos Tevez salary.
In addition to the two clubs, there are still big teams like Guangzhou Evergrande and Tianjin Quanjian on the payroll list.
Special Super League China, there are only three clubs that escaped the blacklist, namely Yanbian Fude, Henan Jianye, there Guizhou Hengfeng.

Until now, Mirror still confirmed the issue of salary arrears to the CFA.
However, the news is close to the truth referring to Kompas.com correspondence with William Bi, a journalist working in one of China’s media, Titan Sports Media.
Bi said, “The article in the Mirror is true and I think they refer to a report on a similar topic that is also evolving in China.”
That is, China’s dark football history in financial terms repeats itself.
In the 2012 season, Chinese clubs had recruited a number of big names such as Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka, and Seydou Keita. However, many stars “run away” because the salary is not paid.
Here is a list of Chinese clubs suspected of having a wage arrears:
Super League: Shanghai Shenhua, Shanghai SIPG, Beijing Guoan, Changchun Yatai, Chongqing Dangdai Lifan, Hebei China Fortune, Guangzhou Evergrande, Guangzhou R & F, Jiangsu Suning, Liaoning Whowin, Shandong Luneng Taishan, Tianjin Quanjian, Tianjin TEDA.
League One: Beijing Renhe, Dalian Transcendence, Shanghai Shenxin, Shijiazhuang Ever Bright.
League Two: Qingdao Jonoon.
