In response to the Italians choice not to take part in the East Asia Cup, Feng Zhen, a reporter from Southern Metropolis Daily, expressed his dissatisfaction: taking the national team to participate in the competition that China team needs to participate in, whether it is the main match or the friendly match, is the most competent job of the head coach. Besides, the East Asia Cup is still an influential traditional event. Lippi as the national football manager, with the most generous treatment, if not even basic work, it is disappointing. Even if he leads the team to the top 12, he cant ignore this kind of rejection
Even if you take a U18 to play, its a national team, but if you change to a temporary coach, team two will not explain. Is it troublesome or afraid of losing? The Chinese Football Association cant control its own manager. Its strange to let this happen.
