With the official announcement of the Luneng Club, Li Xiaopeng officially stepped down as the head coach. Such sudden personnel adjustments caught Luneng fans off guard. Unexpectedly, not only the expected big fish-level foreign aid would be lost, but even the head coach would have dismissed get out of class.
Fans who are familiar with Li Xiaopeng's guidance know that he is a typical Shandongese and he is very real in life and work. What is commendable is that Li Xiaopeng, a tough guy in football, has a high emotional intelligence. One of the most talked about is that after the Chinese Super League match between Luneng and China Fortune was over two years ago, Li Xiaopeng gave a deep bow when he shook hands with Pellegrini. Not only does he treat people decently, he often tells the truth in press conferences. Sometimes when asked by reporters about tactics and personnel arrangements, they said directly. At first everyone thought that Li Xiaopeng instructed this to be a smoke bomb, but then they found out that they really said what they said to kick it! As a result, he was ridiculed and became a prominent head coach.
The reason for saying this is to show that Li Xiaopeng's guidance is a real person. Therefore, when he said that Luneng wanted to introduce big fish-level foreign aid, it was definitely true.
By this season, Luneng's style of play became four different. Neither did they make good use of Fellaini and Pellet's high points, and did not play the expected passing style. In many games, it was passed and controlled for more than half of the game like constipation, and found that time was running out, and then resorted to tower tactics to grab points. Over time, Luneng fans quit, and Li Xiaopeng's call for dismissal became more and more loud. The Li Xiaopeng guide in his eyes only hopes to introduce a strong foreign aid to support his pass and control play. This should be the origin of the big fish.
However, the foreign aid of the big fish class did not come. Thinking about it is probably related to the taking over of the Cultural Tourism Group. With the addition of the new sponsor, it is likely that he and Li Xiaopeng have different opinions on signings, and Da Yu was naturally rejected. Of course, this is just a speculation based on known information. The final result is that Luneng has to rely on the existing team to play the second stage of the game. Taking into account the characteristics of the tournament system, I believe that most of the Super League teams will put defense in the first place. This also means that the improved pass and control style guided by Li Xiaopeng is difficult to work.
Some people might say, isn't the guidance of Li Xiaopeng resigning due to illness? That's right, according to reports from well-known reporters such as Chen Yong, Li Xiaopeng coached the entire first stage of coaching with illness, often with a high fever and worrying about the team's affairs. For this reason, Li Xiaopeng, who was worried about not being able to complete his work, had previously offered to resign.
