Leshan Xiaozhi: Japanese football also had clubs that valued sustainable development after bankruptcy in the Jin and Yuan dynasties.

December 23-after retiring from the Shenzhen team, Japanese player Xiaozhi Leyama has been staying in Shenzhen to engage in youth training. In an interview with Xinhua, Mr. Leyama compared football between China and Japan.
Although far away from the field, Takayama is still as thin and strong as he was when he was a player. he pays close attention to the format of Chinese and Japanese football and thinks about it accordingly.
“Japanese football has experienced the era of ‘gold dollar football’, clubs are scrambling to introduce international big-name players to increase attention, ignoring the operating pressure. It was not until 1998 when a club went bankrupt that the Japanese football community began to attach importance to the sustainable development of the club. ” Leshan Xiaozhi said.
After graduating from Leshan Xiaozhi University, he joined the Japanese J League team Chiba Hara. “Japan has three youth training systems. One is campus football, one is social youth training club, and the other is professional football club echelon. High school football league, professional club echelon league and other events are independent and intensive, and are eliminated step by step, forming a stable pyramid structure. I entered the university as a ‘specialty student’ and joined the J League team from the college sports team. ”
“there are good children in Chinese football, but when children enter middle school, they concentrate on their studies and give up playing football, or it is very difficult for them to play in Europe as professional players at the age of 20.” Mr. Leshan said that after playing against the then Shanghai Shanghai team ten years ago, he was surprised by the outstanding ability of Chinese player Wu Lei. “I asked my Chinese teammates why Wu Lei is still in the Chinese Super League. He should go to Europe. ”
Today, Leshan Xiaozhi has his own youth training club in Shenzhen, which teaches students every week to train the basic skills of football. “I play football and live in China, and I get a lot of help from my Chinese teammates and Chinese people. What I can give back to you can only come from football. ” Leshan Xiaozhi said.
