On October 1, Beijing time, Shenhua News Officer Ma Yue explained the registration of the team’s foreign aid on social media. He said that the Chinese Football Association approved the application of Shenhua Club. The foreign aid Ighalo registered at the beginning of the year is not counted in the total foreign aid for the whole year. Regarding the number of registered people, Zhu Yi, the administrator of Dezhuan, commented on the matter.
Ma Yue explained the issue of foreign aid registration: "The transfer registration rules and transfer window settings of the 2020 Super League have also undergone several adjustments along with the development of the epidemic. The registration of Ighalo with the Chinese Football Association at the beginning of the year was entirely due to At that time, the AFC Champions League was needed to predict the name. Taking into account this special situation, the Chinese Football Association approved the application of Shenhua Club. The registration of Ighalo at that time was not included in the cumulative number of foreign aid registrations throughout the year."
"On September 10, the AFC officially announced that all East Asian AFC matches will be completed between November 15 and December 13, and the location is to be determined. All East Asian teams need to be on October 21 The previous registration was completed once again, which means that the previous registration is invalid again!"
Zhu Yi commented: "The Football Association must first set rules before making special cases. The AFC did not play at all this year, and I also support that Ighalo should not be accounted for. However, rules must be formulated and announced to the public before implementation. Otherwise, no matter what happens in the future. Whatever'special circumstances', the club can go to find a sufficient amount of negotiation reduction, the autonomy beyond the rules is too large, and the final annoying is the Football Association itself.
