Chinese Super League: Club Profile - Henan Jianye

We take a detailed look at Chinese Super League Club Henan Jianye - one of the more modest clubs in the league.

As part of our series of ‘fact-files’ focusing on each of the teams contesting in the Chinese Super League (CSL), we take a look into everything you would need to know about Henan Jianye.
