Eriksson: As far as the first half of the game is concerned, I think that Guangzhou Evergrande played better. We did not play enough aggressiveness and did not put enough pressure on the opponent, which also made Guangzhou Evergrande haveMore possession, so they played better in the first half.But in the second half of the game, we made significant improvements and we played better.As far as the whole game is concerned, I am very satisfied with the performance of the players. I think the draw is a fair result.  Netease Sports: Guangzhou Evergrande had more opportunities to break the door. They hit the door frame twice. Do you admit that this draw has some luck?  Eriksson: Well, they should have scored more goals, but we also created a lot of opportunities, but we didn’t grasp it.Playing against Guangzhou Evergrande on the road is a very painful thing, but if you ask Cannavaro, I think he will also think that a draw is a fair result.  Netease Sports: Wu Lei had a good opportunity to break the goal in the 23rd minute of the first half. He could have shot immediately, but he chose to take the ball and was eventually disconnected. Didn’t you criticize Wu Lei for missing the opportunity after the game?  Eriksson: No, I never do this kind of thing.Blaming the player is not my style at all. I think the job of a coach is to help the player, not to criticize the player.  Netease Sports: What happened to Sun Xiang’s injury?  Ericson: I don’t think it’s as bad as expected.After the examination on Monday, we will get more accurate news of the injury, but I hope he can recover soon.  Netease Sports: Will your post-injury guard return as soon as possible?  Eriksson: I hope that Jin Zhourong and He Xi can return as soon as possible, maybe in the next game, or just after the next game.  Netease Sports: You used to have a good personal relationship with Guangzhou Evergrande coach Lippi. Even you often have dinner together. How is your relationship with Cannavaro?After all, you knew him well when you were in Italy.  Eriksson: My relationship with him is not bad. We have met many times in Italy at his level, but he is like another generation, and our connections are not close.Lippi and I are good friends. It is normal for us to have dinner together, but Cannavaro and I are not so familiar. The relationship between us is more like a colleague.  Netease Sports: After the ten rounds have passed, and after the start of your third Chinese Super League season, the Shanghai team you led is still the only undefeated team and has become the top of the standings.Are there any predictions for such results before the start of the season?  Eriksson: I said long ago that our goal is the Super League title, and the brakes guarantee us to advance to the AFC Champions League next season.Of course, I am very happy with the team’s current performance and achievements, but for us, there is still a long way to go.The Super League is very balanced, and the gap between the teams is not big. Although we have reduced the first place, but some are tight, we will continue to use victory to consolidate the position of the first place.If we can have a chance to fight for the championship, we must catch him, but we must now concentrate on the next game.
