“Golden Dollar Football” Ebb Trend Where will the high-paid foreign aid foreign teachers go under the Super League New Deal?
Under the New Deal, the Chinese Super League is brewing a”shuffle”

“From Starting today, my coaching staff and I will not continue to coach at the Dalian Professional Football Club.” Last weekend, the Spanish name Shuai Benitez’s farewell letter locked his fate with Dalian Club and the Chinese Super League within one and a half years.
In the preparation period before the new season, Benitez is not the first well-known foreign teacher to choose to leave the Super League. Before him, Shanghai SIPG coach Pereira, Beijing Guoan coach Genesio, Guangzhou R&F coach Van Bronckhorst and other big-name foreign teachers have announced their termination of the team.
With the new round of transfer window officially opened on January 1 this year (will continue to February 28), the new season of the Super League has entered the stage of full preparation.
Compared with the transfer signings of tens of millions of euros in previous seasons, the club investment in the new season is no longer a”familiar formula”-with the upgraded version of the salary limit order and other league new policies With the introduction of the Chinese Super League, the”Golden Dollar Football” that has been popular in the Chinese Super League for the past 10 years has gradually receded, and the Chinese Super League is brewing a new”shuffle”.
The”Golden Dollar Football” of the Chinese Super League has been in a cold state since last season. With the Chinese Football Association’s first salary limit after the end of the 2019 season and the sudden impact of the epidemic, the total investment in signings for the Super League last season has fallen sharply, which is only the same as 10 years ago.
The value of the league transfer king and Shanghai SIPG foreign aid Lopez is only 5.4 million euros, which is less than the previous Hulk< /span>, Oscars and other big-name foreign players transferred to the Super League.
After the end of last season, the Chinese Football Association further introduced an upgraded version of the salary limit order-Chinese Super League clubs must not exceed 600 million yuan in a single season, domestic players’ salary in a single season does not exceed 5 million yuan before tax, and foreign players’ salary Not exceeding 3 million euros before tax, and the total foreign aid remuneration not exceeding 10 million euros, etc., make the Chinese Super League teams further put on a”tight spell” in terms of league investment.
Under the New Deal, those foreign teachers with huge and high salaries in the Super League are facing a new choice.
A group of big-name foreign teachers in the Chinese Super League represented by Benitez bid farewell to the Chinese Super League during the league preparation period. Although there are uncertainties brought about by the epidemic, the new league policy may bring income after the implementation of the league. The sharp drop is the main reason for them to leave the Super League.
It is reported that the annual salary of Benitez and his team in the Dalian Club is as high as 13.5 million euros (about 106 million yuan). With the escalation of the Super League salary limit, Benitez will not only be unable to introduce big-name foreign aid, but its own income will also be affected, leaving the Super League to become inevitable.
In addition to big-name foreign teachers, many big-name foreign aids who have held amazingly high salaries in the Super League have also turned away this winter.
In the Chinese Super League, the foreign aid of Shanghai SIPG with a high salary of over 10 million eurosHulk, Suning foreign aid Teixeira , Luneng foreign aid Pellet and others have terminated or ended their contract with the club.
Next, Shanghai Shenhua’s Sharavi and even Guangzhou Evergrande’s meritorious foreign aid Paulinho and others, It is also possible to say goodbye to the Super League.
With the departure of high-paid foreign teachers and foreign aid, the Chinese Super League teams pay more attention to cost-effectiveness and practicality when choosing foreign teachers and foreign aid.
Compared with Benitez, Pereira and others, who have an annual salary of tens of millions of euros, the Chinese Super League The cost of recruiting foreign teachers for the team has been greatly reduced.
According to Shanghai media reports, the newly signed Croatian coach Lecco, who is newly signed to coach SIPG, has an annual salary of 2.5 million euros. Bilic, who has coached the Croatian national team and the Premier League team, has an annual salary of 3.5 million euros in Guoan, only his predecessor, Genesi Half of Austria.
After failing to attract big-name forwards with a lot of money, low-investment midfielders have become the “sweetness” of the Super League transfer market. In addition, the attention of clubs for hiring has also shifted from the top five European leagues to more cost-effective player markets such as South Korea, Japan, and Croatia.
In terms of new signing of foreign aid, Shenhua purchased twice as the best zhongwei</span class=”entity-word” data-gid=”8487082″>for a value of less than 1.5 million euros. Span>’s Croatian Jonich; SIPG introduced Croatian centre-back Mestorovich with a transfer fee of 3 million euros; Luneng spent 1.5 million euros to introduce South Korea’s K-League MVP Sun Junho…
< p>In the 2011 season, Guangzhou Evergrande succeeded in surpassing the Super League, which also opened the”Golden Dollar Era” of the Super League, making the total investment in the Super Winter Window soaring from 5.9 million Euros in the 2010 season to 24.29 million Euros. In the following seasons, the investment of the Chinese Super League teams continued to increase, and the”sky price” foreign aid and foreign teachers repeatedly set new highs, which once shocked the world football.
While high investment has brought big-name foreign aid and high attention to the Super League, it has not brought substantial improvement to the quality of the league and Chinese football, but has made the survival and development environment of the entire league worse. , More and more clubs are unable to make ends meet or even withdraw.
In all fairness, the Chinese Football Association has launched a series of new policies in the past two seasons, hoping that more Chinese Super League clubs can change the previous crazy investment regardless of cost, so that clubs can achieve sustainable development by improving the”bloodmaking” function.
In this sense, the return of the Chinese Super League teams’ investment to rationality in the new season is a high probability event.
But how to find a balance between controlling costs and improving the quality of the league, and retaining fans and sponsors by effectively enhancing the competitiveness and excitement of the league is also a problem that the Chinese Football Association and Chinese Super League teams must think about and solve. .
