Hulk summoned by Chinese Football Association over Oscar protest

Shanghai SIPG striker Hulk was summoned by Chinese Football Association (CFA) on Wednesday after he showed his support for fellow Brazilian footballer Oscar.

During the match between SIPG and Henan Jianye on Sunday, Hulk wore a T-shirt with words “NOTHING TO DO, NOTHING TO SAY” in support of Oscar who received an 8-match suspension a few days ago.

According to, the club spokeswoman declined to give further details and said only that the CFA hearing was “related” to the T-shirts.

It is the second time Hulk has been hauled before the Chinese football chiefs. Last month the 30-year-old was accused of punching the assistant coach of an opponent club, however, he denied the accusation and no further action was taken.
