The start date of the second stage of the Super League is getting closer and closer. After a short rest, Guangzhou Evergrande has also assembled on the 5th to prepare for the most important championship group event. On the 8th, at the Panyu base, Evergrande coach Cannavaro met with various media for the last time before leaving for Suzhou to explain his views.
Six closed knockout rounds in the second stage won the Super League championship, and then the AFC Champions League and the FA Cup, which crashed in the schedule, will have to be cautious in dealing with the Devil's schedule in the next two months, even for Evergrande, who has rich experience in foreign warfare.
At the end of September, the first stage of the Chinese Super League ended. After Evergrande returned to Guangzhou, Cannavaro immediately let the team go on vacation. After all, the players and coaches were not robots during the two-month closed competition and training. Is quite necessary. On the 8th, Evergrande held a media meeting at the new base in Panyu. The reporter saw Cannavaro, who hadn't seen him for several months, at close range. In addition to his iconic smile, he was also relieved.
Kashuai revealed what he did the first thing after returning to Guangzhou. "I haven't seen my wife for 8 months. When we returned home in Guangzhou, we immediately went to Linjiang Avenue and walked for half an hour. It makes me feel that I’m back. It’s not easy for everyone to believe me. It’s not easy to keep energy for such a long time. Not only me, the players and staff have been working together for more than two months, from morning to night, Very not easy."
Seizing the hard-won holiday, the Kashuai family went to Sanya for a beach vacation to adjust, "Thank you China, I have witnessed the greatness of China in the epidemic. With the epidemic in foreign countries so terrifying, our country can still be outside. It’s incredible that fans can enter the stadium to watch football during the meal. My family and I went to Sanya for vacation during the holidays. The impact of the epidemic was completely invisible, except for wearing a mask."
The one-week holiday is actually a good reward for Evergrande in the first stage. After all, in the first stage two rounds in advance to ensure the top position of the group, the points and goal difference are the most in the Super League. Evergrande led by Cannavaro It can be said to be the team with the most stable performance this season. "After a long period of the first stage of the game, we are in a closed living environment in the competition zone, not only the game, including training and life, I am very satisfied. When it comes to the game , Played 14 games, except for a ugly half, the other games were very good." Cannavaro himself commented.
The results of the first stage are no longer meaningful. They are placed in front of Evergrande, which is determined to defend their title. Now it is the second-stage knockout round of the Chinese Super League to determine the championship. Compared with the normal league period, the competition system is similar to the cup competition. The uncertainty on the crown road has suddenly increased, and the time and space for adjustment after problems are very limited. Mr. Jinqiu, who has won the World Cup champion, naturally knows the truth.
Cannavaro said: "I said at the press conference before the final match in Dalian that the first stage is cleared, and the second stage is a new start. The scores in the first stage do not affect the second stage. Double. The round-robin format is still different from the one-round cup match. The contingency is relatively small, and the player reserve is a little bit advantageous. Also, my experience tells myself that this system does not have any chance of making mistakes. I can get it back."
On the 5th, the Heng Daquan team assembled for training. This period of less than two weeks is their final prime time to prepare for this year. Of course, Cannavaro has to deal with the staff irregularity caused by the national team's transfer, although this is commonplace for the defending champion, "I I think there are 2 to 3 obvious problems to be dealt with in the first stage, but after the national team is recruited, 6 players are not there, which is a bit difficult to solve. We can only wait for the end of the national football training camp on October 9th, before we set off for Suzhou, hope Can it improve after a few days of training."
Speaking of the six players called up by the national team, Cannavaro said: "I have no contact with the two naturalized internationals. I don't know where they are. They are also the first time to go to the national team. I hope they can enjoy them. I have been in contact with Wei Shihao and Zhang Linpeng. They are injured and I am more worried about their situation. Before leaving for the national football team, Wei Shihao and Zhang Linpeng have been in the team for treatment. I don’t know what will happen to them when they return. maintain."
Objective factors cannot be controlled. Training the next gang of soldiers will naturally become Kashuai's current priority, especially the controversial foreign aid Talisca in the first stage. Although Cannavaro once again emphasized that "Taliska is not my godson", he must also know that Evergrande wants to win the championship and Talisca's performance on the attack line is crucial, so in the first stage The Brazilians have been given enough patience and time during the game.
Now Talisca’s recovery from injury is in good condition, and he has already participated in the team training. The physical homework he pulled down during his stay in Brazil has gradually been supplemented. "Taliska’s body is now completely free of problems. His biggest The problem is that I have been in Brazil for too long before. Because his players are very talented and capable, but they need a lot of training to stay in shape."
As for Paulinho on the other thigh, Cajun is much more confident. Cannavaro revealed that he will show a better form in Suzhou than in Dalian. "Paulinho is like Talisca, he is not in his best form, although Paulinho’s goal rate is now quite high. But the state in the first stage is not the best. He can still provide more help to the team. Therefore, this can only rely on the accumulation of game time, which is the fastest way to get back to the state. I also like everyone, I hope Tali In the second stage, Skar can return to the state he was in the first six months when he first arrived in Guangzhou. Of course, players at the level of Talisca and Paulinho may also change the team in Europe, not to mention it. What about the Chinese Super League?"
至于保利尼奥在另一只大腿上，卡琼则更有信心。卡纳瓦罗透露，他将在苏州展现出比大连更好的表现。 “ Paulinho就像Talisca一样，他的状态也不是最好的，尽管Paulinho的进球率现在很高。但是第一阶段的状态并不是最好的。他仍然可以为球队提供更多帮助。因此，这只能依靠积累的游戏时间，这是回到状态的最快方法，我也和所有人一样，希望塔利在第二阶段可以回到他刚到达的头六个月的状态当然，塔里卡和波利尼奥这样的球员也可能会改变欧洲的球队，更不用说了。中国超级联赛怎么样？”
During the 15-minute training time that Evergrande disclosed to the media on the 8th, after the whole team warmed up by jogging, Kashuai asked the players to split into two teams to play rugby, and the training ground was full of laughter. On the other side, Mei Fang and Luo Guofu were jogging to recover with the rehabilitator Coty. Huang Bowen is also in recovery training. It is believed that these wounded people will have no problem returning before the second phase.
On October 13, the Evergrande team will set off for Suzhou. Before that, they will train at the world's top new base in Panyu. The staff has already started packing the baggage needed in Suzhou according to the planned process, and all procedures are proceeding in an orderly manner.
Regarding the situation in the Suzhou Division, Cannavaro is now worried about turf. As we all know, the best grass condition in the first stage of the Chinese Super League is the Dalian Youth Training Base. However, due to the continuous rain in the Suzhou Division, the maintenance of the turf is not good. "I am most worried about the second stage of the venue. I hope this During the intermission period, I can do more work in maintaining the venue. Because all aspects have been devoted to this year's Super League. Both the team and the Football Association have spent a lot of effort. In order to ensure the excitement of the game, there is no good venue. It may not be worth it."
When talking about the situation of Evergrande in the semi-finals of the championship group, Cannavaro said that he almost watched the first stage of the Suzhou division and knew all his opponents such as Hebei Huaxia and Beijing Guoan. "We A strong team, although we can’t get stronger through signings now, there are many unique players in the team. If they knead together and play the best, they will definitely have a chance to compete for the championship. Without avoiding it, for the 16 team Some teams are not inferior to us in terms of staffing, or even better than us in some areas, but no matter which team we compete with in the Super League, we have the ability to compete, so we must defend the championship."
在谈到恒大在半决赛中的情况时，卡纳瓦罗说，他几乎看了苏州分区的第一阶段，并认识了河北华夏和北京国安等所有对手。 “我们是一支强大的球队，尽管我们现在无法通过签约而变得更强大，但球队中有许多独特的球员。如果他们团结一致并发挥出最佳状态，他们肯定会有机会争夺冠军。 ，对于16支球队而言，在人员配备上，有些球队并不逊于我们，甚至在某些方面甚至不比我们好。但是，无论我们在超级联赛中与哪支球队竞争，我们都有竞争的能力，因此我们必须捍卫冠军。”
The most important task for Evergrande is of course the competition in the Chinese Super League championship group. However, after the Chinese Super League in the Japanese season on November 12, Evergrande did not have the holiday at all, and was even busier-the AFC in 9 It was officially announced on Japan that the East Asian Championships of the AFC Champions League will be played in Doha, Qatar from November 18th to December 13th. At the same time, the second round of the FA Cup will start on November 26th.
What is certain is that although Evergrande has been competing in the Asian arena for many years, by then Evergrande will face a real two-line battle. Cannavaro himself frankly said that he could not take care of it: "We also don’t know what to do. I said at the meeting that I hope to strengthen the communication between the club and the Football Association, so that the club can make a better plan as much as possible."
As early as the start of the season in July this year, Evergrande boss Xu Jiayin made it clear when he mentioned the season goals that the goal of Evergrande this year is the Chinese Super League and the AFC Champions League. Judging from the clash of time, Evergrande will inevitably give up the FA Cup, while the AFC is an indispensable road to Huashan, but in the face of various Asian powers, it is still a three-day super-intensive schedule. "Thank you for the support of the group. The players in my current lineup are very satisfied, but our configuration is in the Asian arena and we are going to compete for the AFC. Some positions are still lacking."
