China ensnares two more former soccer officials in dragnet

Corruption crackdown deepens; 9 top body affiliates already under investigation

Li Yuyi, left, and Ma Chengquan have come under investigation for "serious violations of discipline and law," according to the Hubei Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection.

Two more senior soccer officials have been caught up in China's sweeping crackdown on corruption in the sport, which has now ensnared at least 11 previously high-ranking members and coaches of the Chinese Football Association (CFA).

Former CFA Vice President Li Yuyi and former Chinese Super League (CSL) Company Chairman Ma Chengquan have been placed under investigation for "serious violations of discipline and law," according to two one-line statements published on Friday by the Hubei Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection.
