Football in China : As in the times of Mao

There were moments in the year 2018, which were created for the battered Image of Chinese football international Polish. The ultimate 5:4 in the title battle of Shanghai SIPG Guangzhou Evergrande for three game days before the end of the season, for example. Or the Cup of victory from Beijing Guo'an with the German coach Roger Schmidt in a two-pack, final play against Shandong Luneng. Or the performance of Wu Lei of master of Shanghai, the abhängte with 27 goals all the highly paid Stars from abroad.

Good news for a League that wants to go upwards, in a country that wants to. China's President Xi Jinping wants the world title. However, the domestic professional League would have to reach at least one level on the talent of international class. What the League needs, is an Association that works so that the clubs can work in peace. The opposite is the case. 2018 will go down as the year in China's football history, which made the Belief in the professionalism of nothing.

The officials of the Association, the CFA handles to altmaoist traditions and gathered their hope, as in previous times in a month-long military camp. At the beginning of October, the CFA recruited 55 Chinese players under the age of 25 from the top two leagues. Regardless of the current season, the clubs had to make their players available and continue to pay. Photos show how you can jump bare-chested in the snow.

military camps for Chinese footballers have, since the 1950s, the Tradition in China, alone, is the breakthrough into the world top. It means that the professionals will be distributed in the coming year, in two squads, and against the clubs of the first and second League start. Your opponent should resign on foreign Stars. The purpose of the project is discussed since then, but there is on the part of the Association, no public, plausible strategy.

The CFA do not club everything corresponding to the Norm

"what time is the CFA stop to shoot themselves in the foot? It is certainly the least predictable Organ in the entire Sport," says Jonathan White, of the in Hong Kong published the "South China Morning Post". It is assumed that the policy plays a large role in the Background. The Ministry of sport provides specialised foreign officials as of 2014, the former table tennis player Cai Zhenhua to the top of the Association, and in the future may be the former basketball hero Yao Ming.

The CFA is considered to be strictly hierarchical construct that must bow to the instructions of the Ministry. But it is the politicians who dictate to the national players have to look like you, if you want to continue to emergence for China. Tattoos must be covered with skin-colored Armsleeves and hair short and black, worn. Blonde hair highlights or Braids are no longer tolerated.

With the mallet method the CFA do not club everything is not the Norm. Victims were mainly their own national players. Recently, it got off to Junchen, the highly-talented U-19 national team player Zhou. The CFA blocked the "Chinese Ribéry," as some experts call it, with reference to the midfielder of FC Bayern, for a period of twelve months. Zhou had to leave with a few players after a lost match against Jordan in Thailand without consultation with the team of trainers the team hotel. While the team-mates came up with significantly shorter Locks, met Zhou, the full brunt of the authorities. He was unapologetic, according to the Association circuits.

"The CFA is apparently on a new campaign. Such a punishment is totally covered and is detrimental to the development of the player,“ says Brandon Chemers from Beijing, reported for many years about the Chinese football. The American believes that Zhou had been punished so hard, to make an example of him.

discipline caught also foreigners

As hard as it had caught a few weeks before national team player Wang Shenchao. The changes in the match against Myanmar and was killed on the field, a necklace, a breach of Fifa regulations. The national Association of language without the Need for a twelve-month lock and hurting, especially of one's own choice. Because Wang has to watch at the Asian Cup in January. The discipline got off to foreigners. The Brazilian Diego Tardelli of Shandong Luneng was suspended for one game because he was driving during the national anthem through the face. A gesture that was interpreted as disrespectful of the Chinese anthem. In a statement, which was published in Tardellis name in Mandarin, said: "I apologize for my disrespectful behavior in China. I had not intended. I have been living and working since four years in China, and to love and respect this country deeply.“

But China always stressed, to want to go his own way, socially, politically, culturally. In 2018, the football of the country has followed this path consistently.
