    Default Why China is Buying Football

    Mostly about the Midlans teams under Chinese ownership and HS2. However we are included. Southampton's deep water port is the reason Gao is here.

    If China wants to invest in foreign infrastructure projects, it does so quite openly. It doesn’t send gormless, disgraced patsies in to buy up the local football team.

    Gao has certainly got the club in deep water.
