 Date:2010.06.29   Publisher:Evergrande Group

On June 28, Zheng Zhi and Sun Xiang, the football players, showed up in the Meeting for New Aid of Guangzhou Evergrande Football Club, and officially joined Evergrande Football Club. In the opinions of the insiders, the joining of the two heavyweight players will surely enhance the overall strength of Evergrande and facilitate Evergrande to take another important step forward in terms of professionalism.

Zheng Zhi and Sun Xiang are symbolic at a certain stage of the football circle in China. After the successful joining of Gao Lin, a football player from the national team, and Lee Jangsoo, the coach, the joining of the two valuable players is an important step of Evergrande in its efforts to build up a top club.

At the meeting, Liu Yongzhuo, the chairman of the board of Guangzhou Evergrande Football Club, expressed his welcome to the two players. In the opinion of Chairman Liu, the Chinese football players who play football in Europe are the pioneers for the Chinese football to join the world. Their return to China will bring to China the advanced professional football skills they learn in Europe, which is influential. Such two-way communication will directly facilitate the professional development of Chinese football.

Coach Lee said, Evergrande makes contribution to the development of the Chinese football and has the obligation to do a good job for the club and the league matches. All these need the joining of such good players as Zheng Zhi and Sun Xiang.

Then, Chairman Liu granted the new “coat armor” to Zheng Zhi and Sun Xiang and hoped they could make greater achievements in Evergrande. Both of the players said that they were very lucky to join Evergrande, and that they would have a brand-new starting point in their career after joining Evergrande.

Soon after taking over Guangzhou Football, Professor Xu Jiayin, the chairman of the board of directors of Evergrande, said that it was the responsibility of Evergrande to facilitate the professional development of Chinese football, and that Evergrande would try its best to make a good job of football. Evergrande Football Club always makes unremitting endeavor in terms of professionalism and hopes to lead Chinese football to join the world and to facilitate the overall development of Chinese football.

The following is the speech delivered by Chairman Liu

Friends from the media:

Good afternoon!

The World Cup matches are being played and are attracting our attention. Here, I’d like to thank you for your presence in this meeting and for your joint support in Guangzhou football.

Recently, it is our focus and also your concern to introduce aid-players into the club. Our previous negotiation for introduction of aid-players has covered a lot of aspects and met a lot of difficulties. In responding to your inquiry, we could only express our gratitude and could not give specific explanations. I hope you can understand this. However, with your concern and support, we finally sign the contract today. Therefore, I declare without delay that two famous Chinese football players, i.e. Zheng Zhi and Sun Xiang, have officially joined Evergrande.

Judging from the development trend of the modern football, the players who play football overseas are the pioneers for each country to quickly improve their fighting capacity in football. Their return to China will bring to China the advanced professional football skills they learned in Europe, which is influential. I believe that such two-way communication will directly facilitate the professional development of Chinese football.

The club has always adhered to the concept of “Try your best once you start to do it”, carried forward the pioneering spirit, and devoted itself to the professionalized development of Chinese football. Zheng Zhi and Sun Xiang are the symbolic figures of the players who play overseas in the circle of Chinese football, with whom you are very familiar. There is no need for me to give an introduction of them.

Now the club invites the joining of these heavyweight players. We firmly believe that this will greatly improve the overall strength and the management capacity over professionalism of Evergrande Football Club and boost the rapid growth of a large number of young players. The club will also offer conditions for them to create the new brilliance in their professional career in Guangzhou. Guangzhou Football will surely return to its peak!

Thank you!
