Tiger Fight, October 23. Recently, Tianjin TEDA's relegation hero Achim Peng admitted in an interview on the official website of the Chinese Super League that if in a normal season, TEDA is likely to be relegated.
Achim Peng: It’s very difficult to describe how we feel now. We finally completed the relegation. This season we have experienced a lot of injuries at the beginning of the season. At the same time, there were irregularities in the foreign aid personnel, but the Tianjin fans, including TEDA Group, gave us With the support of, we are still closely united and completed the relegation task, especially in the second stage, everyone worked together and worked together, and finally completed the relegation task.
Achimpen: Indeed, we experienced a lot of difficulties at the beginning of the league, including the change of coaches later. The original coach Stillik had his own style of play. After the new coach came, he gave it to us. The drill of new tactics, including many meetings, communicate with us. I think in such a difficult situation in Suzhou, everyone did not give up and we were not beaten. So in the second stage, we also knew that this gave us a second chance to save ourselves, so we must take it. With such an opportunity, our personnel are also very neat after coming to Dalian. We have five foreign aids, so everyone on the court can also see some changes in our performance.
Achim Peng: It is true that the rules of the season are quite special, but I think that as the Football Association, a lot of work has been done this year, including in the situation where the global epidemic control is not very good. Organizing and operating such a game, I think they have also prepared for the entire season after careful planning, so I think that including our special competition system and rules, everyone is gradually adapting. Before the second stage, it was already very clear how to play, so I think it doesn't matter whether we go through the painful process in the first stage or whatever.
Achim Peng: This year is indeed quite special. From the beginning of the season preparations, we also experienced a lot of twists and turns on the journey, including the first stage to Kunming, and then back to Europe, then to Thailand, and then back. To China and so on. So this year, we also have all kinds of difficulties to prepare for this league, but I think we still have to thank the Chinese Football Association. They have built for our professional players under such a situation affected by the epidemic. Such a game platform, because for us, the game is still very important and critical, and after the late game is open to the fans, the fans shout for us together, and we also bring happiness to the fans. I think this is a very good feeling. .
Achimpen: I think this is more difficult to talk about, because as a professional football, the departure and arrival of the head coach are very normal things. Of course, Stillik has done a very good job before Preparation, and also made a great contribution to the team. Later, after the guidance of Wang Baoshan, we introduced some new foreign players. Everyone's injuries are also actively recovering. If you really want to make a comparison, It is really difficult. I can only say that Stillik lacked a little luck in his previous work. At that time, the team suffered a lot of injuries. Of course, after the guidance of Wang Baoshan came, our team has been moving forward. With development, we are also undergoing some positive changes, so we finally achieved the task of relegation.
Achim Peng: As a player, I think I just do myself well. The head coach will definitely have a clearer understanding of the situation on the court when he is on the sidelines, so I will follow his requirements for any adjustments he makes. Of course , Maybe the outside world does not know what we will experience as a player in the game, what we will endure, including now I still have some injuries, of course I am not here to complain about anything, because I also think I should not go Complain, because there are too many situations in our team, like Bastians, there are many Chinese players, everyone is gritting their teeth to stick to the game, so I think it is a very painful injury. Experience, but not as a reason for us not to fight on the court.
Achimpen: I think he (Suarez) is a type of player we need very much, because we lacked such a player in the first stage who can hold the ball and protect it. Now we can find A very good rhythm of the game, then he went to fight for the ball, and then I went to seek the space behind me, the cooperation between us became more and more tacit, the first stage, we can not find the feeling of the game, but also because of the lack of the court Such a role, and his arrival, just made up for such a shortcoming.
Achim Peng: Ahmedov is indeed a very amazing person, because everyone has their own family members, and they all know what kind of experience their family members will experience if they go through some unfortunate things, so I think he Under such pressure, I have also made so many contributions to the team, so I also want to use this platform to express my blessings to Ahmed and hope his family can recover soon. Of course Ahmedov does it for the team. With such a contribution, under such pressure, I feel that I can't find more words to bless him, and I hope that his family will be well.
Achim Peng: Tianjin. As I said many times before, Tianjin is already my second hometown, so after so many years in Tianjin, it’s hard for me to imagine that if I were to leave Tianjin one day, I would have What kind of feelings I have in the past few years in Tianjin. I like this city very much. My family and I live very happily in Tianjin, including my daughter and my family. Maybe this year I didn’t come over because of the epidemic, but I have been with me in Tianjin before and have been living in Tianjin, so I also feel the enthusiasm of Tianjin friends, Tianjin fans and Tianjin people, and I can feel them when I see fans on the road. Enthusiasm, so I am very happy to be able to come to such a city.
I am very grateful to the Football Association for being able to open the game to the fans, because I think that the football game itself is not entirely about players playing on the field, but also has a great relationship with the fans, so I think if there are fans cheering us off the field, our The experience of the game is very good. I think the fans spend money to buy tickets to watch the game. What we can give them in return is to bring them happiness.
Achimpen: As for the captain, Stillik brought it up at the time. He brought it up and told me that because I am a foreign aid, I hope I can set an example on the court and choose me to be the captain. , I said at the time that I still need a few days to think about it. One is that I want to discuss this matter with my family, and the other, I also want to discuss this with my teammates, so after that, I also have a very good discussion with my teammates. In the end, everyone agreed to let me be the captain of the team, so I think I am very willing to take on this responsibility. I am willing to continue fighting for Tianjin and Tianjin fans.
