Chen Xuyuan: Confident in qualifying for the top 40 of the National Football Team, responding to Suning TEDA’s withdrawal
China News Service Client, Beijing, March 20th (Reporter Wang Sishuo) As winter passes and spring comes, Chinese football is going through another slightly quiet offseason. The new season of the Chinese Super League is approaching, and the national team, which has been away from the international arena for a long time, is about to prepare for the four games after the top forty games. At this moment, people may have their own expectations and doubts in their hearts. On the evening of the 19th, Bai Yansong asked the Chinese Football Association Chairman Chen Xuyuan continuously on the live broadcast on behalf of the fans, and the latter’s response reflected the current appearance of Chinese football.
Fan Zhiyi in the past week Tucao on Chinese basketball in variety shows aroused heated discussions. Chen Xuyuan talked about his views on this matter. “I think Chinese football has received a lot of criticism from all walks of life in recent years. The reason is that Chinese football is relatively backward, and it will be beaten if it falls behind. So I think the most important thing is that we do our own affairs well, if we can make more progress I hope to bring it to the common people. I believe they will definitely give more positive comments. The key is to be yourself.”
In previous years, the Chinese Super League season started around March, but it was scheduled for the beginning of this year. The battle time is set on April 20. Regarding the upcoming Chinese Super League season, Chen Xuyuan mentioned that a series of preliminary preparations are very cumbersome, because the goal of this year’s Football Association is to, regardless of the Chinese Super League, the Chinese Premier League or the Chinese Premier League, all To play all games, this also means that this season’s Super League, will play 30 rounds, and will not follow the previous season’s game system.
February 28, The Jiangsu team official micro-issued the “Announcement on the suspension of operations of the teams affiliated to Jiangsu Football Club”.
In response to the cruel current situation of the disbandment of Jiangsu Suning, the defending Chinese Super League champion, Chen Xuyuan also expressed his attitude. He revealed that the Chinese Football Association has already seen the various problems of the club, and has also fully communicated in advance. However, the Suning team has already issued an announcement to stop operations, and it is more difficult to meet the admission requirements. It is also rumored that the Tianjin team, which cannot join the Super League in the new season, has encountered some difficulties.
In addition, he also said: “From the perspective of club investment, it should be thought that football itself is a social welfare product. Investors still have to consider the social responsibility and social image behind investing in football. We hope this As far as possible not to happen in the future…For football investment, unlike corporate investment in projects, the business purpose is certainly not the most important one. If every club adheres to this philosophy, I believe that temporary operating difficulties will not become Fundamental problem.”

Under Bai Yansong’s sharp questioning, Chen Xuyuan also made his own response regarding the rename of some clubs, especially when the SIPG team he had served for a long time changed its name to Shanghai Haigang team. “Frankly speaking, it has been nearly two years since I left SIPG. Of course, I have feelings for SIPG, but I don’t even ask about their club work.” As far as he is concerned, he is not in favor of the “former club”. The new name, “In fact, I think there can be a better cultural name, but the committee passed it, and I didn’t comment on it.”
In addition, he also said that Guoan will largely retain it. “Beijing Guoan’s original CITIC Guoan shares are likely to be acquired by Zhonghe. After the acquisition, the two parties have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Therefore, according to the league regulations, Guoan is likely to continue to use this name.”
Some netizens asked Chen Xuyuan that the national football team made him most angry Which game is it? In this regard, Chen Xuyuan bluntly said that it was the tie with the Philippines last year. In fact, the draw on October 15, 2019 was already what happened the year before. At that time, the Chinese men’s football team went to the top forty matches, tying the Philippines and then losing to Syria. The promotion situation in the top twelve match took a sharp turn. In contrast, the away game that was tied by the Philippines made Chen Xuyuan the chairman most angry. That was also the first draw with the Philippines in the history of the national football team.
About the issue of league expansion, Chen Xuyuan also gave a positive answer. “We originally planned to expand the Super League to 18 teams by 2023, the Chinese A to 20, and the Chinese B to 32 teams. Of course, the entire army expansion will be decided according to the development of football. The professional league preparation team is in communication with the Football Association to prepare for the league. In the process, I hope to prepare for the expansion of the army this year.” When talking about the long-demanded but delayed professional league, Chen Xuyuan issued a “military order” in front of the camera, “It must be completed this year.”
< p>”Are there any problems with referees in our professional leagues, what are the problems?” When Bai Yansong continued to raise sensitive refereeing questions, Chen Xuyuan did not evade the most important issues, but frankly pointed out the loopholes he saw in the existing league whistleblowing. come out. “Our professional league, the entire referee team, and Chinese football have many shortcomings. Last year the referee paid a lot to complete the league, but there are also some problems, mainly in three aspects.”
“First, the professional level of our referees is poor Many of the reasons are that the professional level is not in place, not for other reasons; the second is that we do have bad habits in the refereeing session, such as circle and mountain culture, which will also affect the judgment of referees in law enforcement; the third cannot be said to be complete There is no fake gambling that we have fought against in the past.” Chen Xuyuan said.
Chairman Chen is very determined for the forthcoming men’s football finals. “This top forty match is an exam for Chinese football. We must pass the exam. My point is that we must be able to beat these opponents. As long as we prepare for the game and adjust our mentality in place, we can win. The next game. In the next Forty Finals, we are fully confident to do a good job of preparation and hand in satisfactory answers.”
“I have been working in the Football Association for nearly two years, and I have worked in a company for 46 years. To be a joke, it was always me. Scolding others, no one else scolding me. I have worked in the Football Association for more than a year and have been hesitant and hesitant, but I am now very strong. I think I must continue to take this responsibility.” Chen Xuyuan still confided humorously at the end of the interview. To my heart. “I regretted it once, but I can’t do it now.”
In the last Q&A session, Chen Xuyuan talked about his proud football skills, “It’s good among 65-year-old amateurs. When asked why he was still doing this difficult job at the age of 64, his response was utterly loud-“I think it is for the social responsibility I pursue, and I hope to do something for football.”
The position of the Chinese football navigator on Chen Xuyuan station, It has just been a year and a half, and people have seen his courage and determination to reform, but they have not yet looked forward to the buds that will grow on this barren soil. To be impatient, no one can rush him. The next 40 men’s football matches, the women’s Olympic preliminaries, and the restart of the Chinese Super League, are full of trials and hopes. Hopefully, the vision in Chairman Chen’s heart can be fulfilled one by one in the next few years. After all, all fans want to see it earlier and the dream will be reflected in reality. (End)
