The Chinese authorities indicted former Chinese national team coach Li Tian early last month, who signaled a ‘typhoon’ targeting the soccer world by falling from a horse in November last year.

With the indictment of former Chairman Cheon following former director Lee, it is expected that the judicial process of corrupt figures who have fallen from office will speed up.

During the intensive investigation of the Chinese soccer world, Korean national soccer team player Son Jun-ho and his team’s Shandong Taishan team’s coach and players also became targets of investigation on charges of match-fixing.

Son Jun-ho was arrested on May 12 while trying to return from Shanghai Hongqiao Airport on charges of bribery of non-state agents, and has been under investigation by the Liaoning Province Chaoyang Public Security Bureau, which switched to an arrest investigation as of June 17.

While no further news has been heard about him, China’s detention and investigation is known to be possible for at least 2 months and up to 7 months, leading to speculation that the possibility of Son Jun-ho’s detention being prolonged cannot be ruled out.
