Yannick Carrasco offers teammate US$11,000 for medical bills
Adopted from: scmp.com
Published: 21 November, 2018
Belgium international striker Yannick Carrasco has apologised publicly for breaking Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang teammate Jin Pengxiang’s nose in a training ground altercation.
The incident happened in a training session following the club’s crucial win over eventual champions Shanghai SIPG in August, a 1-0 victory through a Carrasco goal.
The club was involved in a relegation fight so it was seemingly kept under wraps, with Jin refusing to divulge details to the media. He has not played since.
But with the season over and the club’s top flight status secured for another season after another Carrasco goal in a 2-0 final day win, the news has now come to light.
“It was at a training session and because of a collision we had some small conflicts that eventually caused his nose to be injured,” Carrasco, 25, told the Dalian Evening News. “From my point of view, I think Jin Pengxiang is a good player and a very good person.”
Carrasco went on to apologise and explained that he offered to pay the US$11,372 medical bills that Jin incurred but this did not happen, nor did a reported request for compensation.
He also said he would be happy to play alongside Jin next season, while club chairman Zhou Jun apologised to Jin on behalf of the Wanda Group-backed club.
