Shanghai SIPG attacker Hulk and coach Andre Villlas-Boas have been banned for two games after showing support for Oscar in his eight-match suspension.

Former Chelsea star Oscar was hit with the lengthy ban after sparking a mass brawl in his side's 1-1 draw with Guangzhou R&F by appearing to deliberately blast the ball at opponents twice in quick succession.

The t-shirt worn by Hulk featured the slogan "nothing to do, nothing to say", echoing clothing worn by Oscar last week, while Wu's shirt read "nothing to do".

The pair were subsequently handed two-match bans and each handed fines of RMB50000 (€6,500) by the CFA, with Villas-Boas docked RMB16000 (€2,000) as well as a stadium ban for two games for "inappropriate comments on social media".

Although the CFA did not specify which post had landed Villas-Boas in trouble, the former Chelsea and Tottenham boss was given had written on Instagram: "355 career games; 5 years in the English Premier League; 47 appearances for Brazil; 70 goals. ZERO RED CARDS!!! 8 games suspended."
