Arsenal’s transfer goal in the summer of 2019 was Yannick Carrasco, who was disciplined by Dalian Yifang (China) for being late for the club after returning to Belgium. Carrasco did not appear in the Dalian Yifang match against Hebei China Fortune on June 15 after returning to the team. He apologizes to his teammates and explains why he missed the flight through his personal page. However, the Dalian Yifang leadership still made a disciplinary decision for former Atletico Madrid player.
Metro quoted the club Dalian Yifang: “Carrasco midfielder has been absent from the match with Hebei China Fortune, the following training session. Therefore, the club that applies discipline to him is forced to apologize to the team within 3 days, and stop practicing. Dalian Yifang attaches great importance to discipline and no individual is allowed to put on the collective.
Earlier, Carrasco was accused by teammate Yu Ziqian of deliberately suspending a suspension to avoid playing for the club. “When confronting Shanghai Greenland Shenhua, Carrasco intentionally received the fourth yellow card to be banned from playing a match. After that, he was allowed to return to Europe before the deadline for the team, ”Ziqian said.
After the late Carrasco joined the club, Ziqian continued to criticize: “When the whole team met Habei China Fortune, did he excuse his reason for being late? If I come back a day earlier, how does that happen? He came back but didn’t bother to train with the whole team. No matter how talented Carrasco is, it must respect the interests of the collective. Hope the club can say goodbye as we have welcomed you to China. ”
In the winter market of 2019, Arsenal sent an offer to recruit Carrasco. However, the failure to reach an agreement on transfer fees caused the “Gunners” to miss the opportunity to bring the Belgian midfielder back to Europe. According to many sources in the UK, Arsenal will succeed this time when Carrasco is determined to leave China to return to the top football environment.
Carrasco was a key factor in the Atletico squad. At the age of 24, the Belgian midfielder stunned the village when he gave up his peak career to play in China with a good salary.
