More details about the “illegal” money and this coach obtained are as follows:
Approximately 250,000 USD (about 5.8 billion VND) salary of 2 TSM players was “transferred to the wrong object” by Peter Zhang.

Coach TSM helped SwordArt sell cars for about $80,000 in the US, but this coach only paid $35,000 for SwordArt, and the remaining $45,000 is still “debts that have not been paid yet”. More than $15,000 in loans from players and staff at TSM. If the players and staff did not stop it in time, this number would have increased by another 20,000 USD.
