Special correspondent Li Rui reported that Tianjin TEDA’s relegation task has been completed. Recently, the team started preparing for the FA Cup. Wang Baoshan also made it clear that he would go all out for good results. After relegation, TEDA’s three foreign aids all stayed behind the team, reflecting their professional attitude and making the team’s prospects in the FA Cup brighter.
However, behind the team’s successful relegation and the desire to compete for the FA Cup, there are some practical problems that need to be resolved. Under the special background of this year, TEDA, like some clubs in the Chinese Super League, failed to escape the operational crisis. All encountered varying degrees of wage arrears.
The newly joined Ahmedov and Lima only receive a small portion of their salary, while Suarez has not received a penny so far. Captain Achim Peng has been in arrears for three months. Only got one quarter’s salary. It is in this state that the players have completed their relegation. To continue to strive for good results, the club and the group must act and support.
The public training on the 17th was TEDA’s first appearance in Tianjin after its successful relegation. Many fans braved the cold wind to the scene and sounded the familiar drum. One was to celebrate the team’s relegation, and the other was to help the team. Cheer up for the Football Association Cup.
After the end of the Chinese Super League, many foreign players in the Chinese Super League chose to return to China for vacation. TEDA’s three foreign players Suarez, Achim Peng, and Lima all chose to stay behind. TEDA’s prospects in the FA Cup are also very good. As the captain, Achim Peng said directly: “Of course we hope to win more games, for the sake of Tianjin people, and to support our fans. If this is a very good opportunity, why not do it? We have such a good opportunity. Wish, winning the championship is very worth looking forward to.”
Achim Peng is currently the foreign player with the longest time on the team and the only foreign player who has not returned home so far this year. Everyone has seen his contribution to TEDA’s relegation, but what the outside world does not know is that he is also the foreign aid that has not received a salary for the longest time in the team this year. Moreover, Achim Peng’s mother was ill in his hometown, and it was also very difficult whether to return to his country.Spark Global Limited
