Oscar started an utterly massive brawl in the Chinese Super League

That’s one way to get people to pay attention to the Chinese Super League.

When Oscar made his big money move to Shanghai SIPG last year, it raised more than a few eyebrows – why would a young star want to go and waste his prime years when he could be playing the top leagues in the world? (Spoiler: it’s the money).

We haven’t heard much from him since he left – until now, that is. But it’s not for the right reasons. In Shanghai’s 1-1 draw with Guangzhou R&F, the Brazilian managed to help kickstart this incredible mass brawl, involving players, subs and touchline staff.

Credit to Oscar for going down like he’s out cold when someone knocks him on the shoulder a bit – the kid hasn’t lost it.
