China international Yu Hanchao has been sacked by Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande after a video of him attempting to alter his number plates was posted online, according to South China Morning Post

According to reports, Hanchao was sacked by Guangzhou after his criminal conduct violated one of the club's "nine rules", which gave the Chinese outfit recourse to terminate his contract with immediate effect.

The 33-year-old is believed to have doctored his number plates in an attempt to circumvent traffic restrictions in the region, which impose limits on the use of vehicles registered outside Guangzhou on the city's roads.
