Pereira ( head coach of Shanghai SIPG)

This is a tough match, I am happy with the result, as well as the players for their hard play and strength. To face such strong opponent, actually we can perform even better. But in the first half, we have not control the match good enough, but it was better in the second half.


To received the victory is very important, the players are under good condition, now I need to prepare for the next league.


To let them score even, we think that we can take down the match, 1 to 1 draw means both teams has chances. In the second half, we have some improvement, and create some opportunities, to change by make balance of the match. We have lost control in the first half, did not do well, the opponent have made some excellent passing, the control on the middle field is not good enough as well.


Until end of the league there is still a long way to go, the CSL league is very tough, there are four to five teams has the ability to win at the finals, so every match needs to get points. If not concentrate properly, it’s easy to lose points, we have a tough match on Saturday. The current position is good for us, this is the encouragement to the team, but don’t forget we have many leagues need to play. Now we have to calm down, concentrate to focus for the next league.

Cannavaro ( head coach of Guangzhou Evergrande): I think, the champion will still belong to us. I am very proud today, and satisfied with the performance with our players. From 1 minute to 90 minutes of Shanghai SIPG’s home ground, the players are listening to my instructions, frequently threaten opponent goal post, we have creating many opportunities today, but the luck is not by our side.


Of course, under such process of match, but did not take points back, we are a bit shameful. But there are still 8 leagues until the end, I have said in the change room, not the difference of 4, but only one point behind. The remaining 8 leagues, there is still opportunity for us, Shanghai SIPG and Beijing Guoan, maybe our league is more advantage for us. We will play well, start from compete against Jiangsu Suning.


Regarding that mistake on ball of coordination, actually the coordination ball which Shanghai SIPG has cooperate, we have watching the videos 3 times before the match. But sometimes, this is difficult and anything could happen.  I think the match has been disturb too many times, especially the team like us require many passed and receive the ball, high intensity on movement, so this has impact us a lot.
