Zibo Cuju investor He Shihua has returned to the pitch for his side , making his third appearance of the season for the China League One side. Once again, the 35-year-old came off the bench as the game wore down, this time entering the fray in the 91st minute, just after his side had scored an equaliser against Shaanxi Changan. The owner might pay the wages but he was quickly told who was the boss on the pitch when he tried to take a free kick and was waved away by one of his teammates. It was in stark contrast to the videos of former Jilin Baijia owner Xu Guangnan playing in 2019 where he took every possible dead ball for his side. That video was conflated with He’s appearances this season to become a viral story where He forced the coach to play his 126kg son . After his team scored the late equalizer , He Shihua, the No. 10 player and the owner of Zibo Cuju, came off the bench to make the 3rd appearance in CL1(2nd division) this season. He wanted to take the freekick as the last attempt of the team, but was asked to get away. pic.twitter.com/4nUc8w7LiK — Titan Sports Plus (@titan_plus) June 8, 2021 Video of He being waved away from the ball was shared by the Twitter account of China’s Titan Sports media outlet.
