Guangzhou Evergrande midfielder Paulinho is accused of promoting a betting company alongside with an adult movie star, which is against the Chinese club’s policies.
The club has launched an investigation and plans on setting financial and disciplinary punishments against the Brazil international.
“We conducted an internal investigation into Paulinho as soon as we learnt of the scandal through the media. After the initial enquiries, we found that Paulinho had agreed to endorse the betting company without notifying the club in advance and he had failed to do the most basic due diligence required for this endorsement,” the Club’s official statement read.
