Press Release

4 November 2016 - The AFC Disciplinary Committee issued on Thursday decisions regarding the anti-doping rule violation committed by Shandong Luneng (CHN) player Jin Jingdao (https://www.the-afc.com/media-releases/chinese-player-provisionally-suspended-for-doping-violation) and an incident that occurred in the 49th minute of the AFC U-16 Championship India 2016 match between DPR Korea vs Uzbekistan on 23 September 2016.

Jingdao, who tested positive for clenbuterol in an out-of-competition test conducted prior to the FC Seoul (KOR) vs Shandong Luneng (CHN) match on 23 August 2016, was suspended from all football-related activity for a period of 8 months. The full decision will be made available on the AFC website in due course.

The Committee also found that the DPR Korea Football Association, the DPR Korea U-16 Head Coach Yung Jong Su, and the DPR Korea goalkeeper for the match Jang Paek Ho, were all guilty of bringing the game into disrepute following the deliberate conceding of a goal in the 49th minute of the match and ordered:

DPR Korea Football Association:
USD20,000 fine and exclusion from AFC U-19 Championship 2018 (suspended for a probationary period of 1 year)

DPR Korea official Yung Jong Su
USD5,000 fine and twelve (12) month match suspension

DPR Korea player Jang Paek Ho
USD1,000 fine and twelve (12) month match suspension

Should the U-19 representative team of the DPR Korea Football Association engage in similar behaviour in the AFC U-19 Championship 2018 (Qualifiers), they will be automatically excluded from the competition.

The effect of the match suspensions also means that Yung and Jang are now suspended from the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017.

All decisions have been notified to the respective Member Associations today.
