After investigation, in the early stage of the introduction of Meng Xiangyu, because the special preparation funds were not in place for the time being, in order to ensure that the players' lives were not affected, with the consent of Zhang Runqi, the head coach Yu Junqiang borrowed cash from Ronggang Club in April 4 and successively advanced Meng Xiangyu's salary from March to May 2014 with a total of 3 yuan. In June 5, after the special preparation funds were in place, the former Tianjin Physical Engineering Brigade transferred the salary from March to May 124998 to Meng Xiangyu's bank card, and Meng Xiangyu returned the cash 2014 yuan received in advance to the head coach Yu Junqiang as required, and Wei Yaqin, the accounting officer, returned it to the Ronggang Club.
