Oscar of Shanghai SIPG in action during an AFC Champions League Group F match against Urawa Red Diamonds in April.

Former Chelsea footballer Oscar has been involved in a mass brawl between Chinese clubs Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou R&F on Monday (NZ Time).

Now playing in the Chinese Super League, the attacking midfielder was in the middle of a fracas that involved both teams, the reserves and the coaching staff of both sides.

Oscar, who signed with Shangai last year for $105m, appeared to kick the ball at two Guangzhou players.

He was confronted, then pushed to the ground, before things kicked off and the benches cleared with players running in.

The referee managed to regain control of the match after play had been stopped for more than two minutes and a player from each side was given a red card.

The match finished as a draw, as Oscar helped set up the equalising goal for Hulk.

Shangai are managed by former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boa.
