Dongtian: Shenhua has accumulated 1 billion yuan in arrears of wages in the past few years, and it is difficult to solve the problem before the end of the year.

December 26-according to the regulations of the Chinese Football Association, professional football clubs should settle all historical arrears of wages by December 31, 2022, otherwise they will be punished. According to the Oriental Sports Daily, it will be very difficult for Shanghai Shenhua Club to solve a series of problems such as historical debts before the end of the year.
Judging from the current situation, whether the share reform can be completed on schedule, and whether the new and old shareholders in the future can reach an agreement to solve a series of problems before the “deadline” at the end of the year will become the lifeblood of Shenhua “life and death”. But at least in terms of time, it’s not that difficult.
An industry insider familiar with Shanghai football said: “because there are too many things and aspects involved, it should not be completed in a short time, but it is not impossible.”
If you want to break the current situation and make a big breakthrough in a short period of time, you need to reach an agreement between the new and old shareholders and investors involved in the Shenhua share reform as soon as possible. The industry source said: “in fact, in the final analysis, it is nothing more than how to deal with historical debt, the future share of shares and the future management of the club.” The latter two items may be better, but the problem will not be too big. After all, it is up to who pays more. The trouble is that wages are in arrears. After all, it is not easy for anyone to come up with such a large sum of money after accumulating over the past few years. ”
If the arrears of wages cannot be resolved within the time limit set by the Chinese Football Association, Shenhua will face demotion. If the problem of arrears of wages is still not completely solved before the start of the Chinese Super League next year, we will also be fined points, and it is obviously too simple to rely on the residual power of the established teams of the Chinese Super League to successfully return to the Chinese Super League.
In addition, Shanghai Shenhua will play the Cangzhou Lions in the FA Cup 1ram quarterfinals, which will be played on January 4 and January 7, 2023. At present, 20 players in Shenhua have contracts that expire on December 31, 2022. If they cannot renew their contracts with these players before then, they can choose to leave the team after the contract expires and no longer participate in any games on behalf of Shenhua.
