Philip ( assistant coach of Shanghai SIPG)


I think we saw an excellent match, the two strong teams fought fiercely. We are playing very hard to create scoring opportunities, try to score goals, Suning also had several opportunities. I am a little disappointed, did not get three points, but we will continue to fight, try to play well and try our best to win the following match.


 We do have important players who can not play this time, but this was not the reasons and excuses which we didn’t win today. Jiangsu Suning plays very hard, they did their best. We knew this was a tough match, but after getting one point, we well perform better for the following match, to get three points.


Look at the top two forwarders from opponent, although in such circumstances, our defend line is well protected. Although we have given some opportunities to opponent, but they have not score goals, our defend line did a good job.


Olaroiu ( Head coach of Jiangsu Suning): It was a very difficult match, the opponent is very strong. But we are not happy with the result, we have gained more opportunities, but have not turn into goals, actually we can win the match. Of course, everyone has tried very hard, we have carry out our strength and progress, we can compete with top teams.
