Pereira ( Head coach of Shanghai SIPG)

Today the game was very intense, our team deserve the final results. I am satisfied with the team performance, the players are non-stop running on the pitch, work together, this is very important for us.


Regarding I pass a little message to Wu Lei, because I think I must make some changes, especially strategy for defending, to keep everything under control, so I wrote the instruction on the paper. To ask Wu Lei pass to the other players, to let them know quickly what they must do next.


Before each game, we will spend time to practice ball coordination technique. I am very glad we have scored goals, the goal scored by Wu Lei was excellent, and so far he is the best player in China.


Wu Lei is the player who has technique and has its own characteristic, this makes him the top player. Actually I was not only satisfied with his goals, but his contribution on attacking for the team, I let him to be involved with attacking and assist to attack, he will take immediate actions, he always consider for the team, this is the most important. I believe he will score more goals in his football career.


If we are looking at the numbers of scoring and losing goals, I can said the team are balance on the attack and defend, our attack is equal with Shandong Luneng to have less possession, and leading on the net goals, we did very well. Because we are good at carrying forward and we are very stable and fairly balance.


Wu Jingui ( Head coach of Shanghai Greenland Shenhua): Congrats to Shanghai SIPG for winning the match. For entire match, both teams are played very well, it is relevant to the point. We havent solve some of the problems, this caused we lose the ball. The players have played well with their own level, but we still need to go back and summarized some details.


We have some injuries at defend MF, the change of effect is not bad, to stop the opponent for their attacking, it was successful, didnt lose the ball on the position. Two young players, I am satisfied with their performance.
