Pereira ( head coach of Shanghai SIPG)

Today, we have learned a good lesson. Football is actually very simple,when to attack everyone attack together, to keep the compact structure, when to defend everyone defend together, to keep the compact structure as well.But the team I saw today was not play like this, we attack then lost the control of the ball, the formation then become loose, many empty gaps behind.

This is not our style of play, we must learn from this match, and to gain experiences and learn lessons. In the match, we lost the balance of tactics,lost the emotional balance, it is impossible to win this match unde these circumstances.


Chen Jingang ( head coach of Changchun Yatai): The match was breath taking, both team has give a wonderul match to the audience.Thanks to the players for their excellent performance, and thanks to the supporters,I hope more fans will cheer for us in the future games.At that same time, I wish Shanghai SIPG in the up-coming league, CFA Cup and ACL to received good results. Shanghai SIPG has a lot that we could learn from, they have strong ability, feel that they can achieved good results this year.

Today's score is on the one hand,we have more good chances and cooperation in the duration of the game,defend is also not bad. We have done particular research on Shanghai SIPG, especially the previous match playing against Tianjin Teda has given us alot of guidence.
