The Chinese side confirms the striker will face disciplinary action following his activities on social media
Odion Ighalo will be sanctioned by Shanghai Shenhua for violating the club’s rules and regulations on social media.
The Africa Cup of Nations top-scorer suffered a knee injury in his last international appearance against Tunisia – and is currently undergoing rehabilitation in Spain.
Rather than channel his strength on recuperating quickly to join his team’s battle against relegation, he spent more time on social media posting holiday photos and videos, which did not go down too well with the Chinese outfit.
In a statement released by Shanghai Shenhua on Weibo, it was confirmed Ighalo will be punished because his posts caused ‘great concern to Chinese media and fans’.
