On the afternoon of October 14, the Sichuan Jiuniu Club officially issued a statement that due to the previous improper remarks made by the head coach Li Yi, one month’s salary was deducted and Li Yi was ordered to suspend him for a week starting today.
In view of the improper remarks made by Li Yi at the post-match press conference of the eighth round of the first stage of the 2020 China League One, which hurt the feelings of Sichuan fans and brought adverse effects to the club, the club decided to punish Li Yi. Deducting Li Yi’s one month’s salary and instructing Li Yi to suspend his work for a week from now on, earnestly study and deeply understand the glorious history of Sichuan football development and the football culture inheritance of the yellow faith.
In order to strengthen the management of the team, the club decided to add the captain Wang Song to the coaching team as an assistant coach until the end of the league. As a flag player of Sichuan football, Wang Song, with his charm, personal ability and rich experience in the league, and his responsibility to Sichuan football, I believe that as a coach and player, he will definitely help the team complete the relegation task.

Previously in the 9th round of the Chinese Premier League, Sichuan Jiuniu was scored two goals by Nantong Zhiyun in stoppage time. After the game, Li Yi's remarks at the press conference that “wear yellow if you don’t win 8 games or blue will win 1” caused widespread controversy, and then he apologized to the fans.
