Chinese goalkeeper Wang Dalei has been spared the axe by football chiefs after he apologised for his misconduct in Doha. But fellow Olympic team member Cui Peng has been shown the door following his unruly behaviour. According to mainland sports newspaper The First, the Shandong Luneng midfielder was 'kicked out' by the China FA for behaving like a prima donna. Among his crimes, alleged the newspaper, was a failure to turn up for meals, sleeping late, and an addiction to internet computer games. Keeper Wang and fellow squad member Chen Tao apologised for their 'arrogant ways' at the tournament and were reprimanded. As reported yesterday, CFA vice-chairman Nan Yong said the egos of some of China's young football stalwarts were undermining performances - the side was knocked out by Iran in the Doha quarter-finals - and were affecting preparations for the 2008 Beijing Games. 'Wang Dalei has not been sacked. But one player violated the rules and has suffered severe punishment,' Nan said. He said he did not want to name the player - but Cui later admitted to the media he had been made an example of. 'I hope he will learn from this punishment. It is a temporary punishment.'
