The expansion of the army has given Qingdao Zhong a hope, and the fan market is hard to recover
The goal is to return to the Chinese First Class every year, but every year it’s almost meaningless. Four years have passed in a flash, from Yin Tiesheng to Stevanovic, to Christic, to Gasa, to Zhu Jiong, The head coach is renewed every year, but the team’s performance has never improved.
In Qingdao, which has a strong football culture, teams such as Zhongchuang Hengtai and Qingdao Red Lions have gradually begun to”take the lead” in the professional league. Chinese Super League“Single Seed” Qingdao Huanghai also developed steadily under the leadership of coach Wu Jingui. The fan group began to divide, and the disappointed Zhongneng gradually ceased to be their only choice, even if it changed back.”Qingdao Manatee”, a name with great significance in local football, is temporarily unable to find the glorious years of that year.
Last season, Qingdao Zhongneng changed coaches in three rounds, and the team won 1 win and 2 draws. When he failed and was only 2 points away from the top of the division, he unexpectedly terminated his contract with the coaching staff of Zhu Jiong and announced the termination of the contract S1 changed the old tone to call”Zhu Jiong” by name, and we can see some clues about this class.
After Zhu Jiong stepped down, the team’s former coach and the club’s youth training director Gasha took over the coach. The Serb arrived in Luxi early and just waited for the end of the three rounds to return to the team. In the 2019 season, Gasa also took the post midway through the fire, leading his team to play 23 games in the Chinese Second League, and achieved 10 wins, 9 draws and 4 losses. The record, the team finally ranked seventh in the North District. In the 2020 season, the Serbs, who appeared again midway through the seven rounds with 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, finally ranked third among the 10 teams in the Luxi Division. They still failed to bring the team into the promotion playoffs.
In the past four years, Qingdao Zhongneng has twice been promoted to the promotion play-offs, but they all came home in the quarter-finals. One time was when they lost to Meixian 2-3 in the two rounds in 2017. Tiehan ecology was once bloodbathed by the Sichuan team in 2018. However, both teams announced their disbandment last year.
After completing his mission as a fire-fighting coach, Gasa once again left his position as coach and the old coach Yin Tiesheng returned. With a number of Chinese Super League and Chinese Premier League clubs within walking distance of their dissolution, coupled with the two-level league expansion plan, the return of Zhongneng to Chinese Premier League may finally be nothing more than talk.
