East: from “hiring Lippi” to “naturalized international player”, Evergrande’s feat of being a national nurture should not be denied.

On December 28, yesterday afternoon, the Guangzhou team of the Chinese Super League lost 1-4 to Changchun Yatai and was relegated to China League one round ahead of schedule. Shanghai-based Oriental Sports Daily commented that although the Guangzhou team is now downgraded, Evergrande’s feat of being a national nursery should not be denied, from hiring Lippi to coaching the national team to naturalizing a number of international players for Chinese football.
Since the Guangzhou team returned to the Chinese Super League in the 2011 season, the frenzied smashing of money by the Evergrande Group has given birth to another team of kings in the Chinese professional arena. From 2011 to 2017, the Guangzhou team won the Chinese Super League championship for seven consecutive years and won the AFC Champions League twice. Guangzhou won the league title again in 2019, achieving the great cause of eight championships. Over the past 12 years, the waves caused by the Guangzhou team in the Chinese Super League should not be left behind at will, and their promotion of the league and their harm to Chinese football should be engraved in historical memories and should not be easily erased.
