Jiang’s wife shows red card for playing away

THE wife of a Chinese player showed her husband a “red card” yesterday for playing away, claiming that spending too much time with his mistress led to his embarrassing gaffe in a crucial World Cup qualifier.

Jiang Zhipeng, a Guangzhou R&F left-back, had a disastrous performance in Tehran against Iran on Tuesday, when his header went to the rival player that led to the only goal of the match.

Jiang’s wife revealed on social media that he had recently filed for divorce.

“For nearly three-and-a-half years out of our four-year marriage, he was sleeping with other women and now he is trying to drive me to an early grave,” Zhang Zhiyue wrote.

She posted photos of Jiang snuggling with his alleged mistress, and asked the Chinese football association and the sports bureau of Guangdong province to “expel” him from football.
