In the 14th round of the first stage of the Chinese Super League, Guangzhou Evergrande beat the Dalianren 1-0. After the game, head coach Cannavaro attended the post-match press conference of the game.
Talk about the first stage
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all team members and staff. I was quite shocked. From the first day to the end of the last day, all the team members were very cooperative with my work. I am very satisfied with the implementation of the technical and tactical requirements during the game, including the completion of each training session. From Dubai back to Guangzhou, until the start of the league, there has been no long rest, and even the three-day holiday.
Talk about daily preparation
I am more strict with the players and the burden is a bit heavy. But judging from the running and fighting data, our efforts have paid off. Very positively, there are still some rest in Dalian, such as one or two days of rest. But every time a team breaks, there are always players asking for additional training. This is a very positive signal and means that you cannot relax for a while in a club like Evergrande. This is also the thought I especially want to convey to the players, that is, I cannot relax one day in my career, especially in such a club. When every member of the club has this mindset, the team will improve every day.
Talk about Golat
Goulart played all the games in the Suzhou Division. This was our previous goal, and he also accomplished it. But he completely stopped (competition) nearly two years ago. Now there is no clear arrangement for his future. He has to discuss with the group, including the AFC. Many things need to be considered comprehensively.
Talk about the status of the Heng Daquan team
There are still many players who have not reached 100% status, such as Fernando, Yan Dinghao, and Li Xuepeng. As long as there are 1,000 minutes of the game, the players can reach a relatively good state. However, due to various reasons, some of the more important players have not yet reached. But what I am most satisfied with is the implementation and display of the players' skills and tactics, which are done well no matter what the environment. Now the team is very mature, according to the instructions of the coaching staff during the game, immediately carry out the formation change. Back in Guangzhou, there won't be much time until the second phase begins. I also have to give the players a vacation and a national team training camp. I don’t know how many people will go there. It depends on the situation. But our first consideration is to give the players a vacation.
