New boss for scandal-hit China FA

A NEW leader was appointed at China's Football Association today to keep it functioning after two top officials were sacked over police allegations of match-fixing.

Wei Di, former director of the Water Sports Administrative Center, will take over the scandal-ridden association next week, and Nan Yong and Yang Yimin have been formally sacked.

The Ministry of Public Security confirmed on Thursday that police have seized the two for questioning in their inquiry into match-fixing and gambling in Chinese football.

At least 21 officials, players and club managers have been arrested or detained in the past two months on suspicion of match-fixing or gambling, which is illegal in China.
