Beijing time today, the 15th round of the Chinese Super League Guangzhou R&F vs. Qingdao Huanghai Qinggang pre-match press conference was held in the Dalian Division. Guangzhou R&F coach Van Bronckhorst attended the press conference.
After a few weeks, we returned to Dalian again. After the first stage, we gave the players a few days off, allowing them to recover and adjust physically and mentally. Later, we had a training camp in Guangzhou and we were very happy that the team introduced two new foreign players after the first stage. I think all the preparations are good. We know that the format of the second stage is completely different from that of the first stage. We are playing a two-round knockout, and its intensity is not comparable to the first stage. Than. I hope that players can achieve 100% in their mentality, physical fitness, and attention on the court. We can't say that we only played 90 minutes of games, we have to stick to 180 minutes of games. We also hope to complete the relegation task as soon as possible, so tomorrow’s game is our first opportunity. We hope to seize the first opportunity and then play the first game of the two rounds.
Our first few games at the beginning of the season exposed a lot of problems defensively and conceded more goals. As the league progressed, we also did some analysis and conclusions. This has also improved by adjusting the formation to a three-back formation. Of course, we also know that in a two-round knockout match, every goal is of the utmost importance. We hope that the team can be more stable on the defensive end to ensure zero goals and not give the opponent any chance. Of course, we also know that the defensive end still needs the whole team to work hard and do well. In this month, the players have done a good job in daily training, and our team has been working hard to improve the overall defense. I hope we can continue the upward trend in the second half of the first stage and continue to do better defensively.
Briefly introduce the injury situation, the first is Zeng Chao, he has not yet practiced with the team because of a knee injury. Renardinho has been involved in recovery training after his injury in the first stage and is expected to return to the team for joint training this week. Li Tixiang suffered a fractured metacarpal bone. He has returned to the team for joint training after surgery, but he only participated in confrontational training on Tuesday. He may not be able to play this game, but we look forward to his next game. Chen Junle is also a very talented player. He also played in the first stage of the game before, but it is a pity that he suffered a knee injury and needs surgical treatment. He will miss the second stage of the game.
The club is very quick in the operation of renting two new foreign players. These two new players also participated in the team's joint training for about 10 days. They are getting more and more familiar with each other. They also integrate into the team very quickly. I believe their The technical feature is that they are very adaptable to the team's technical and tactical play. I believe their ability can help the team and help the club succeed.
Everyone knows that he played for the Chongqing team in the first stage and joined our team on loan in the second stage. We are two completely different teams, with certain differences in tactics. I believe his experience against Qingdao will also be helpful to the team because we believe in his ability. Of course, the second stage of the competition is completely different from the first stage. I hope he can fight for the rich and powerful with the mentality of going all out for the team.
The Shenzhen team had a chance to enter the top four before the final round of the first stage, and finally got very high points. Tianjin did not perform so well in the first stage. The outside world believed that Shenzhen could easily win the game, but the results surprised everyone. But in my opinion, this is very normal. Whether I am a player or a coach, I have played or coached in some popular teams, but it does not mean that we can win every game, especially in such a special Under the fierce competition system, anything can happen. So I still hope that the team can be more fully prepared and put our mentality in a right way. I can guarantee that our team does not mean to underestimate the opponent in preparation, because Qingdao is also a very strong team, they have very good coaches, their staff structure is also very reasonable, their foreign aid, domestic aid The ability is also very strong. So I still hope that the team can’t relax, value the opponent, put the mentality right, and show attention on the court, so as to support us to have a better advantage in the two rounds of the game. Of course, I still treat our team. Very confident.
