On the afternoon of October 4th, all members of the Shenzhen Kaisa’s first team finished the 6-day holiday and returned to their base to prepare for the second stage of the Chinese Super League. The coach of Shenzhen Football Club Jr. Cruyff said: "Our goal is very clear. We will actively prepare for the battle and complete the relegation goal as quickly as possible."
On September 27, the first stage of the Chinese Super League ended. Many deep football coaches, players and staff chose to go home and spent a warm National Day Mid-Autumn Festival with their families. Defence player Mi Haolun said: "I had a potluck with my wife and children during the holiday and enjoyed a rare family time." Midfielder Dai Weijun said: "Because I still had a little discomfort on my feet before, I returned to Shenzhen to rest. During the holidays, I also had daily talks. Family video chat, and some mooncakes with friends."
Cruyff, who was coaching the deep foot for the first time, used his vacation time to tour the sea world and took a closer look at the city for the first time. He said that he knew this was a beautiful city before, but now he doesn't have time to visit it slowly.
On the first training day after the holiday, almost all the deep-footed players participated in the joint training. Jiang Zhipeng has not returned to the team for the time being due to participating in the national team training. The amount of training arranged by the coach of the deep football team was moderate, and the players completed short passes, steals, group confrontations and other training content. Cruyff revealed: "The format of the second stage of the game is very different from before, so we have to make better use of possession and passing to create more offensive opportunities and score more goals."
In training, Cruyff paid great attention to the players' sense of position and often corrected their positions on the field. At the same time, he also requires good communication between the players, shouting out to let everyone know what each other thinks, and reduce mistakes. After the training, Mi Haolun said: "Everyone is in a good state, and they want to keep improving and play well in the next game." Dai Weijun said: "The second stage of the game is coming soon, so we need to get into the shape faster. I hope to help the team complete the goal as soon as possible, and at the same time I can score more goals in the game."
Cruyff and his team conducted research on the opponent Tianjin TEDA in the second stage. He reminded the players to always be vigilant: "We can't disclose the details of the preparations. What we can know is that Tianjin TEDA has gained strength through the introduction of new players. It’s different, we have to use this time to improve ourselves."
