The last round was in Yancheng to watch Group B. Today we will come to watch our game. Whats the name of that 45? How old is it?
Such greetings and conversations occur at the edge of almost every round of U23 League matches.
The original intention of the U23 League is to give young players who cant play in the first team more opportunities to practice. But it is precisely because such games are arranged between the end of the previous season and the beginning of the new seasons winter training, so that the U23 League has added the exhibition attribute of talent flow.
Players are working hard to find a way out next year
The first-team players of the Chinese Super League and the Chinese First-Class Club have entered the vacation mode after a season. Therefore, all the players who really come to play in U23 league are the marginal players who are not sure to be included in the seasons list in the first-team, as well as the young players from all levels of the clubs youth training echelon.
The last season did not get too many chances. These players have to compete for a first-team squad next year through the U23 league with their best performances. The competition is very fierce.
Taking the Hong Kong Club as an example, only Zhang Huachen and Sun Jungang have played in the first-team matches in Hong Kong in the 2018 season. In addition, players like Gao Zhijie, Jiang Zilei and Yang Shiyuan have been on loan to other teams this season. Whether these loan players can return to their parent team or not, the U23 League is also a platform for them to show their current actual level.
According to Cheng Yaodong, head coach of Shanghai U23 team, there are thirty or forty players aged 20 to 24 in the club. Next year, there will be 99/00 youngsters coming up to join the competition for first-team registration. It can be seen that the elimination rate is quite high, and next year the League U23 policy may be cancelled, which further weakens the advantages of young players.
As a result, the U23 league players hardly need to mobilize and go all out on the pitch, especially the U23 teams from the Chinese Super League clubs such as Shanggang, Luneng and Shenhua. Xu Haoyang, Shenhuas U19 youngster, and Zhang Enge, both from Hong Kong, had just got off the court and were sent directly to the hospital by ambulance for examination.
In fact, its not just for the sake of getting into the first teams new season list. With the attention of many club scouts, if players can be recognized, even on loan or transfer, it is a good choice for young players who can not play in their own clubs at present.
I hope the players can play well, perform well and lay a good foundation for next year. Cheng Yaodong, head coach of Shanghai U23 team, has mentioned the problem of playersexit more than once. After all, it is mainly through this platform that these players show their good state, so that more people can understand them and pay attention to them. No matter which club you are at next year, you have to be ready for next season.
Select people, low-level clubs are the most active
Players need to play, they need a way out. In fact, the clubs that are preparing for the new season next year also need to supplement their squad, so they are also looking at the U23 league.
With the scarcity of top football players in China, those players who can not play in their own clubs have become the focus of scouts. Of course, the most concerned are the Chinese Super League clubs with strong youth training foundation, such as Group A in Jiangning Football Training Base, Nanjing, Shandong Luneng and Shanghai Port have the highest popularity. Like Shanghai Club, most of the young players of Shandong Luneng Club with good youth training tradition are difficult to get ahead in the first team, so Shandong Luneng Club and Luneng Football School have always been the big exporters of players.
The Chinese Super League may not be able to get the chance to play, but whether it is the young players of Shandong Luneng or Shandong Shandong Shandong Shandong, it is not a big problem to play in the first place in terms of strength. In the second place, it is basically the absolute main force. Therefore, on the sidelines of U23 League matches, it is almost impossible to find scouts from Chinese Super League clubs, and most of them are from low-level League clubs.
The coach of Zibo Team of North China Second Division has been paying attention to Shandong Luneng U23 Team on Sunday. The geographical proximity is very convenient for players to rent. Similarly, the staff of the Manantong Zhiyun Club can be seen on the sidelines of the U23 team competition in Shanghai. And Nantong Zhiyun, who is still playing in the second division this season, has definitely tasted the sweet spot of loan. Zhu Zhengrong, who is on loan from the Shanghai Club, is the absolute core of the teams midfield and the key player of the teams success in the first division this year. In addition, Shangkong U21 Junior General Gao Zhijie was also on loan to Nantong Zhiyun this summer, starting in several key battles.
Four hats are expected to promote mobility
The buyers market and the sellers market are in demand, and the U23 League is really a good trading platform. But whether the Chinese players can really move and let more players have the ball to play still needs further encouragement policies and measures from the Football Association. For example, for low-level League clubs, whether on loan or transfer from the Chinese Super Club, the cost of funds has always been the biggest obstacle.
Let alone spend tens of millions of yuan to buy a player who plays the main role in the Chinese Super League Club, even if it costs millions to buy a young player in the Chinese Super League Club is a huge burden. Therefore, the second and most of the promotion will not be strong in the first club, more or more will consider the use of leasing to make up for the teams shortcomings in the lineup.
In fact, its very difficult to rent. Some of the children who havent played in the first team are paid 23 million a year. A club staff member from a low-level League League league said, U23 policy has been implemented in the past two years, and the salaries of young players signed by large and medium-sized clubs are very high. Im so interested in renting that we cant afford his salary. You know, in the 2014 season when Shanghai East Asia kicked the Chinese Super League, the annual salary of the main players is only a few hundred thousand.
Fortunately, the four caps being brewed by the Chinese Football Association - capital injection cap, salary cap, bonus cap, transfer cap, let the clubs of low-level leagues see real hope. If the Football Association really has a cap on capital injection, the salaries of the big clubs must be inclined to the first-team players and foreign aid, young players. Wages will not be too high. Its better to keep down the transfer fees for young players, so we can choose more players. So Ill come and see if the new deal comes out and maybe I can sign a few back. The boss said that next year we should accumulate well and prepare for the next year. Go back to Sohu and see more
