Tiger Fighting, October 4, in an exclusive interview with the "Yangcheng Evening News", R&F Club Chairman Huang Shenghua responded to hot issues such as the contracts of former core striker Zahavi and Saba, the team's next stage goals, and the rise of domestic players. He also revealed some interesting facts about the head coach Van Bronckhorst's intoxication of Chinese culture.
Huang Shenghua (hereinafter referred to as Huang): It can be said that it is qualified. Our goal at the beginning of the season was to rush into the championship group. In the end, we lost a breath. I used to feel very difficult the night that Zahawi left the team. At the beginning we talked about Zahawi and Saba before leaving after the first stage. The signing of the second stage was actually lost, but during the conversation, Harvey's attitude disappointed me a bit, but to my surprise, the team's statistics and performance in all aspects of the next game are commendable.
Huang: Everyone has the same goal, unite around the head coach, and strive 100%. Everyone gets along day and night, engages in a lot of team building activities and private conversations, and faces difficulties together.
Last season, we scored 11 points against these seven teams at Yuexiushan Stadium, but we lost all seven away games. This year, the major general is short of soldiers. There were more wounded players in the audience than the players on the bench. By 15 points, they overwhelmed the host Dalian, and for the first time faced Henan Jianye to achieve a "double kill", and also had a good performance against Shanghai Shenhua. The FA Cup advancement, especially the second round of the first stage, the team's The performance I was "receiving", the team has come out of the pain of Zahavi's departure, and finally can achieve a more balanced offense and defense, and really feel like a "Xiaoqiang" who can't die.
Huang: Many of Fan Shuai's ideas are actually constantly being adjusted. He likes to communicate with players. He often listens to the opinions of the Chinese and Western coaching staff, and then synthesizes opinions that we all find insightful. So the whole process is constantly improving. Now the overall atmosphere of the club is very good. The management, coaching staff and players are very harmonious. Everyone convinces him and is willing to fight for the team. This is actually in line with R&F’s culture. He also added some tenacious elements to the team, such as the "absolute level" against Jiangsu Suning, the "lore" against Dalian people, and the final round facing Shandong Luneng. The audience confirmed this point. He will also instill in the players the notion that Chinese players are not worse than foreign aid, giving everyone a lot of confidence.
Huang: Fan Shuai is very rigorous when he works. He has a long working hours, but he is usually a "smile group (cantonese to describe funny people)". I remember that everyone was celebrating after winning a certain game in a thrilling manner, but at 11 o'clock in the evening they saw his two assistants enter his room with laptop computers and began to study the plan for the next game. I couldn't help but say "crazy coaching staff." Indeed, under his leadership this year, the team has made great progress in many statistics.
In private, Fan Shuai likes oriental culture very much, and he likes to drink Shengpu very much. I also gave him a set of "Three Kingdoms Kill" because he saw that we were all playing and was very curious, so I told him that this is a very old and strategic game related to Chinese history. He was very interested Asked if there was an English version, Chen Zhizhao ordered a copy online and asked him to study Chinese history. I also gave him a pair of mahjong, he also likes Chinese calligraphy and painting, and is working hard to learn Chinese.
Huang: Indeed, Ah Niu (Huang Zhengyu) has firmly grasped the starting position of the midfielder from the third game. There are also Li Tixiang, Zhang Gong, Tang Miao, Chen Zhizhao, etc., not to mention Chang Feiya and Ye Chugui. Players are growing, veterans are becoming more stable, teenagers are rising, and Han Jiaqi defended 14 rounds, all of which brought many positive changes to the team.
In fact, the signing of Fan Shuai at that time was based on his uniqueness in the use of players and young players. He has relatively high physical requirements and is suitable for the growth of young players. Now it seems to have some effects. Many U21 players get a lot of opportunities to play, which is good for them.
Huang: It’s normal to be nervous. For example, Zhang Jinliang was a reserve team player in January this year. He entered the first team sequence in May. He will have the opportunity to start in the FA Cup in September. At the end of September, they will start in the Super League. We are very pleased that we have achieved something, and Fan Shuai is also very happy. The players of the pre-90s and post-97s in the team are actually communicating with each other. The old players teach the young players how to play. The atmosphere of the team is very good.
Huang: Chen Junle has returned. Renaldinho, Li Titian and Zeng Chao are expected to resume training after October 10. Fan Shuai is also boldly using young players, so that each of them has the confidence to accept the challenge, has the energy to do every day of training, ready to show themselves in the game at any time.
Pei: The legal teams on both sides are connecting. I hope that this issue can be resolved peacefully. Saba is a normal transfer. Zahavi has some historical issues, but after all, he is also considered a legend in the history of R&F Club. Neither side wants to There are too many frictions. I believe I will sit down and discuss the contract issue frankly and honestly. I hope and I am confident to resolve this issue with courtesy and warmth.
Pei: During the negotiation process, I really want to thank Chongqing Lifan and Changchun Yatai for their support. Although the process has been a bit twists and turns, especially when Zivkovic comes back from abroad, he needs to be quarantined and must apply for an international transfer certificate. Chongqing even stopped Adrian from playing in the final round and came directly to discuss personal terms. All problems were resolved within 48 hours. I think this is a record-breaking speed in the Super League.
These two are counterpoint signings, including the previous Song Wenjie, who also played a tactical role in the frontcourt. They may not have high-light performance, but they can attract defensive players and give other players more space. In the next second stage, our goal is to relegation as quickly as possible, while polishing the strength and thickness of the lineup better. To
