Wanted: Wang Xin

Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 16, 2008

Wang Xin, the general manager of S-League football club Liaoning Guangyuan, is now a wanted man.

The 40-year-old Chinese national was to be charged on Wednesday on 25 counts of match-fixing, but failed to turn up in court.

The charges allege that he offered bribes to eight Liaoning players to fix the scoreline of six S-League matches last season.

Wang’s arrest was announced by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) on Jan 7. Subsequently, the ex-Chinese national youth footballer applied to the High Court for permission to return to China to settle personal matters. (story)
