On October 18th, Beijing time, the first round of the "Shanghai Derby" of the Chinese Super League Championship started. The two teams scored 0-0. After the game, Shenhua coach Cui Kangxi attended the press conference.
Cui Kangxi said: "Thank you for the players who worked hard to the end. We also have regrets and have done well. This result is not bad, and there is a second round. I hope that the second round will play well."
"We conceded a lot of goals in the league last year. This year our goal is to reduce conceded. All our players have to participate in the defense, which is why we conceded fewer goals. Of course, the players on the defensive line also performed well and deserves praise. The first round is a tie, and we have to sum up the shortcomings and fight for the next game."
Talking about why several new foreign players did not play and the health of the players, Cui Kangxi said: “The new players need time to adapt to the team. It’s a pity that Mez and Martinez are replaced. Zhao Mingjian’s injury may be more serious. Moreno’s injury is a serious injury and should not be a big problem. Zhu Chenjie, who was on the bench, was replaced because his ankle was broken again. ."
"For the derby in a different place, the fans of both teams are here, so there is not much home and away points. Through the cheering of the fans, the players have been given strength. (Today's result) did not fully meet expectations. We also hope to win and defend. We did a good job, and we still need to strengthen the defensive and offensive aspects."
In this game, Mbia also made outstanding achievements in the defense line. He frequently blocked the "eye-catching" in front of the goal. After the game, he also won the best player of the game.
