European reporter Emiliano Carchia revealed on social media that the Shandong team is currently in arrears of wages for players, and in addition to domestic players, foreign players are also involved in wage arrears!
On October 30, the reporter broke the news again, saying that the CBA is currently investigating the Shandong wage arrears incident. If the team still fails to pay wages, it may be suspended and punished.
The news immediately sparked heated discussions, and the Shanxi Dongxiwang Basketball Club had to issue an official announcement to refute the rumors that the “Shandong team owes wages” to the outside world.
The specific statement is as follows:
Subsequently, the CBA league official also responded to the matter, saying: The league has not received any complaints and evidence about the club’s wage arrears to athletes, and there is currently no problem with the club in arrears of wages to athletes.
Shi Linjie, the general manager of the Suzhou Kendia team, posted a microblog to praise the CBA company. He said that the European reporter maliciously smeared and spread rumors about the CBA to help the agent spread the wind and raise the price!
And the CBA company responded in a timely manner, and did not let people with ulterior motives be used as gunmen!
Shandong team veteran Zhang Qingpeng also stood up and publicly refuted the rumors: “Do you believe the rumors on the Internet? You are joking. The team’s logistics support work is very good, which also gives us confidence. We will do our best to win the first game of the new season.
, got off to a good start.”
The inside story revealed by Shi Linjie made some people suspect that the “rumours of salary arrears” may have been exposed by Sui Ran, the former Shandong men’s basketball team captain.
Feel the painting style below this Weibo:
Faced with doubts from the outside world, Sui Ran also reposted Shi Linjie’s Weibo, saying that he “supports the CBA company to investigate to the end”; then he listed three reasons to prove his innocence, saying that although he is not so high-spirited, he will never
Dirty and dirty so far!
On December 31, 2018, Sui Ran announced his retirement.
Since then, he and his partners have established a brokerage company, and have successively signed players such as Ding Yanyuhang, Zhou Qi and Wang Zhelin.
As Ding Yanyuhang’s agent, Sui Ran had a very unpleasant dispute with the Shandong team over Ding’s contract extension. The two sides even used social media to fight openly and secretly.
Now Xiaoding’s contract renewal is still unresolved, and it is still unknown when he will return to the CBA.
Shandong coach Gong Xiaobin said a few days ago: “Xiao Ding is still from Shandong. There is no doubt about it. The current situation depends on him. We can discuss the conditions, but the league is about to start. I think this year may be too late.”
In August last year, Xiwang Group officially took over the Shandong team from Shandong Hi-speed.
Club chairman Wang Di revealed that the Shandong team’s goal is to compete for the championship!
Xiwang Group will use a total of 600-700 million a year in advertising expenses to operate the team, and the future investment will only increase reasonably and will not decrease!
The Shandong boss is by no means just talking. During the offseason, they signed four foreign players, Kanan, Hudson, Selden and Metz, and their investment is not insignificant.
However, in the eyes of the outside world, the Shandong team is likely to leave only Hudson and Mays in the end, and the two are relatively cheap.
At present, Gong Xiaobin has basically finalized the foreign aid combination of Hudson and Metz.
In this regard, the Shandong coach said: “Selden and Kanan have no experience of playing overseas. Although Hudson is older, he has rich experience and good condition, and can play a role in driving the whole team.”
Gong Xiaobin admitted frankly that the team currently does not have the strength to win the championship, and the goal of the new season is to reach the playoffs.
In fact, if the four-character foreign aid Xiaoding can return to the team, Shandong is very hopeful for the championship.
It’s just that the two parties have been unable to reach a consensus due to the issue of contract renewal, and I don’t know how long it will take to see.
