On September 21, Beijing time, in the 12th round of the first stage of the Chinese Super League, Shenzhen Kaisa lost 1-2 to Shandong Luneng Taishan. After the game, the coach of Shenzhen Football Club Jr. attended the press conference.
The players worked hard to reach the end of the game today, and the penalty kick at the end of the first half had a lot of impact on us. Today the whole team used their efforts to impress our coaching staff and reporters. We also have a lot of possession time on the court and a lot of shots, but we did not turn those opportunities into goals.
We failed to turn the chance into a goal. Today, when we were in possession of the ball, we did a good job of passing, running, and forward, but it was the last one. The player with the most goals in our team (Mali) also had some physical discomfort today. The team doctor advised him to play only 45 minutes today.
I will tell the players that every bit of hard work and no gain will be rewarded as much as we paid. Although we have paid a lot today but have not been rewarded, we are now on the right path. Going down this road, there will be good results.
Mali was injured in the last league game, so we must be very careful in using him. As a coach, my job is to use my players reasonably, so that they have sufficient physical fitness to prepare for the next game.
Every next point is important, and everything we do is to take all three points.
