China probes defeat by Evergrande youth football team
Chinese authorities have ordered tighter supervision of local football leagues and an investigation into alleged match-fixing following a defeat suffered by an under-15s team from the youth academy of distressed property developer Evergrande.
Evergrande founder Hui Ka Yan in 2012 built one of the world’s largest residential football academies in Qingyuan in southern China’s Guangdong province with the help of coaches from Spanish club Real Madrid.
目前陷入困境的房地产开发商恒大的创始人许家印(Hui Ka Yan)，于2012年在中国南方广东省清远市兴建了世界上最大的足球住宿学校，西班牙足球俱乐部皇马(Real Madrid)派遣多名教练予以协助。
But the implosion of the highly indebted Evergrande property group has left the academy beset with financial issues over the past 12 months and Chinese media have reported that it has been losing teachers and students.
