Eriksson (the head coach of Shanghai SIPG FC) :

To win again was the most important thing because it was a long time since our last victory. This victory was very important. In the second half, we played a lot better than in the first half. In the first half, the opponent created more opportunities to score. Hangzhou Greentown performed well today, especially in aggression, which was not seen previously.

I hoped these three points can inspire the morale of the team and give us more energy so that we can win the last five matches. We were very happy to get three points. And the team was still on the way of winning the qualification of the next season of AFC Champions League. Of course, the rest of the game would be very hard. We must be prepared to do our best and make every effort to get the score.

For our young club, it was a good result to enter the quarterfinal of AFC Champions League for the first time to play and it would be wonderful if we can continue to play next season. Everyone knew that, so everyone made good preparation.

He Guan’s performance was very good. I was happy to see that. Next, we played a game every week, so I would let the strongest 11 players play. As to next round with Guangzhou Evergrade Taobao, I was not sure whether Kim Ju-Young returned back or not. So He Guan may continue to play.

Elkeson’s injury was rectus femoris. His specific traumatic condition would be known until tomorrow’s detailed examination after coming back Shanghai.


Hong Myung-Bo (the head coach of Hangzhou Greentown FC) :

Our player had been tried their best, but unfortunately, we lost two goals. SIPG was indeed a strong team. In the second half, after fumble early, we turned into passive. Over all, our players developed their ability.
