When Manchester City won the title ahead of time, Gua Shuai gave a speech to all the staff at the training base: Congratulations, because we are the champions and the best in England. I hope all the staff feel that they are part of the championship. We are always talking about coaches and players, but without your efforts, we will not be able to achieve this. You know how wonderful your work is. You can lose one or two games, and a season is 9 months, 10 months. You are great every day. You have created something special. The spirit of the dressing room, and your friendship, if you are not good people, we wont win the championship. What we ended up doing was better than the other 19 teams. Thats it. Theres nothing else. But you take care of everyone and deserve all my respect. I will always remember you to the last day of my life. I am very sure about that. After my speech, everyone went to the stadium to take pictures, and all the players and staff went. I want to give you the warmest applause. We deserve it.
