China International Yu Hanchao Sacked By Club After Being Caught Tampering With Licence Plate

China International Yu Hanchao Sacked By Club After Being Caught Tampering With Licence Plate

China international Yu Hanchao has been sacked by Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande after he was caught altering his license plate in public.

Hanchao, who has made 59 appearances for China, appeared to change the letter E to the letter F in the clip recorded by someone nearby.

The 33-year-old can even be seen heading back to the Mercedes-Benz vehicle before inspecting the license plate further, possibly to avoid local traffic restrictions.

Hanchao has since been detained by police and reportedly faces 15 days in custody, a 5000 Chinese Yuan fine (£562) and 12 points on his license, according to The Daily Mail.

On top of that, Hanchao's club Guangzhou Evergrande have taken serious action after the midfielder "seriously violated" team regulations.

Evergrande released the following statement, confirming his dismissal from the Chinese Super League side.

"The player Yu Hanchao severely violated the "Nine Expulsion" disciplinary provisions of Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao Football Club [and] "Team Regulations", and was dismissed after the company's research." it read.

Hanchao's car is registered in Liaoning but is located in Guangzhou, which is 2,700km away from where he was caught tampering with his plate. In this area, non-local cars are only allowed to be driven for four days in a row.

The 33-year-old, who has also played for Dalian Aerbin and Liaoning F.C, made 115 appearances for Evergrande.

He helped the club become one of the most successful clubs in Chinese football history, winning seven league titles between 2011 and 2019.
