For the new Shuai Li Tie, the players have expressed trust and expectations. Hong Kong international Yan Chun-ling said in an interview that he had always been very optimistic about Li Tie as head coach and that the club's performances of coaching and leading the team to the East Asian Cup showed that Li Tie was a very thoughtful local coach.
About 5:45 p.m., Li arrived at the hotel with his luggage. He didn't stop in front of the waiting press and trotted into the hotel. He left only one sentence in the process:\" I'll go up and put down my luggage and come over and start training at once.\"
In view of the internationals'exhaustion, the coaching staff did not arrange for the team to go to Evergrande base for ball training, and Li Tie arranged for the team to carry out physical recovery and strength training in the hotel sports gym in the evening.
On the one hand, it reflects Li Tie's strict rule of the army, on the other hand, it also reflects the urgent need of the new national football. The national team, from players to coaches to management teams, is almost entirely new, and this more than two-week training session will require all parties to get the new team on track as soon as possible.
At the end of March, the National Football Association will host two top-40 games with the Maldives and Guam, although it will count for more than two months, but with Spring Festival holidays and league missions, this will be the only training session before March. In two weeks, not only do the teams need to run in, but the coaching staff also have to work out the top 40 squads and initial tactical guidelines.
This tension will also be reflected in the next session. It is understood that the team will train in Foshan, three practice a day is likely to become the norm, during which time will arrange two teaching competitions. January 23, the team will enter the Spring Festival holiday.
