Li Yi said that the teams goal in the new season is first of all to avoid relegation, and at present the most important work is to introduce foreign aid: foreign aid is very important to the team, so we will keep on introducing foreign aid. If there is no foreign aid, it is really difficult to play the league
The teams goals for the new season
First of all, it must be relegation
Red Star News: Hello, director Li. Welcome to Sichuan. Why did you choose to join Sichuan?
Li Yi: Sichuan youbixuan is a young team. Both players and investors have certain ideals and aspirations. Moreover, the team has the background of Manchester City. For me, such a platform is lacking. In fact, I have been in contact with the clubs investors for a long time. But in the end, when I was told to coach, it was quite sudden.
Red Star News: before that, many domestic and foreign famous marshals were candidates for the top positions in Sichuan. What advantages made you stand out?
Li Yi: first of all, Im younger. Its Mesozoic. Secondly, Ive been with a lot of famous coaches since I was a player to be a coach. Foreign countries have Horton, Milu, arihan, trussier. I have followed Shen Xiangfu, Zhu Guanghu and Gao Hongbo in China, so I still have an advantage in this respect. Another big advantage is that it is more convenient for me to communicate with Chinese players.
Red Star News: you have assisted many famous coaches, which coach has helped you the most?
Li Yi: Zhu Guanghu is the most helpful player in my playing time. Trusier is the one who helps me the most in my coaching career. Because I learned a lot from trussier, my first teacher when I became a coach.
Red Star News: what is the goal of the team in the new season?
Li Yi: first of all, it is to protect the class. We are promoted, there are many new players to join, but the team is still short of foreign aid, so first of all, we must be relegated. In fact, its useless to talk about too many goals. As long as we do a good job in every link, many things will go with the flow. As long as you take each step well, the final result will be better than expected.
Advocating high position close and grab method
The training state of a player determines whether he can play or not
Red Star News: you must select the strength of the introduction is also very big. Whats your comment on this seasons recruitment?
Li Yi: I only came to the team today (July 22), and I still dont fully understand some of the teams internal aid. At present, what we need most is foreign aid. Foreign aid is very important to the team, including the first and the Super League. Therefore, we will continue to introduce foreign aid, if there is no foreign aid, it is really not good to play the league. Without foreign aid, its like playing chess and giving your opponent a car.
When Li Yi arrived in Chengdu, he met with the team
Red Star News: Sichuan fans are generally concerned about what kind of playing methods will be adopted in the new season for such a brand-new team?
Li Yi: I advocate oppressive and high-level snatching. Now young coaches are more used to this advanced tactics. Football has to have passion and blood to play well. However, it is also necessary to formulate the playing method according to the existing personnel and situation of the team. For example, I want to play high-level close down, but when I come to the team, the players are not specific about this kind of play, or it is more suitable for other games, so we have to change it. There are two kinds of coaches. One is to stick to his own playing methods, such as high-level snatching or defensive counterattack. In those years, Jose Antonio was famous for sticking to the defensive counterattack. However, some coaches teach students in accordance with their aptitude, that is, when they arrive at the team and find out what is suitable for the team, they will adjust their playing methods.
Red Star News: what are your plans and preparations for the use of young players?
Li Yi: after I arrived at the team, I told them a very important point, that is, a new coach came, so the previous things would be turned over. What Im looking at now is the state of their training, the ability they show in training, and if they are qualified to play, they will be in the starting list. Anyone who has the ability to enter the large list will be included in the 18 person list. I only look at the teams training, which is fair to everyone.
Its hard to play twice a week
But its fair to every team
Red Star News: the new season may be like the Super League two games a week, do you think the teams bench depth can cope with an average of three to four days a game?
Li Yi: its not only our team, but I dont think any team can meet the requirements of a double game a week. We made up from the second half, maybe it will be worse, but I believe it is fair for every team.
Red Star News: in your career as a player and coach, have you had two months of closed games and training? Whats your opinion on such a competition system?
Enthusiastic Sichuan fans welcome Li Yi at the airport
Li Yi: I have never had such an experience before. This is a new challenge. As we all know, this year, because of the impact of the epidemic, there is really no way. The Chinese Super League will open on the 25th, and the Chinese Football Association has done a lot of work in this respect. It is not easy to carry on the league. I am also very grateful to the leaders and staff of the Football Association. Its really hard.
The Yellow whirlwind once swept across the river
Sichuan is very suitable for me
Red Star News: whats your impression of Sichuan football before?
Li Yi: I knew Sichuan football better when I was a player. Sichuan ball market was very popular in the era of a, and the Yellow whirlwind swept across the whole country, including the slogan of Xiongqi. Sichuan fans are also very enthusiastic. Sichuan is known as the land of abundance. Several famous people I like very much, such as Zhuge Liang and Li Bai, have origins in Sichuan, so I think Sichuan is quite suitable for me.
Red Star News: this season, Sichuan has two professional teams active in the field of China a, how do you view this scene? Li Yi: market economy. At that time, there were three Chinese Super teams in Shanghai, which was a normal phenomenon. Red Star News: can you tell Sichuan fans something at last?
