January 31 In an exclusive interview with “Football News”, Henan Songshan Longmen coach Ha
Weir said that the team needs to avoid unnecessary red cards, and he also expressed the hope that the team will play proactive football.
When you returned to Spain to rest during this period, did you review the experience of the team last year?
What is your biggest emotion?
This is a very difficult season for all teams, and it is not easy to complete the league.
I am so proud of the hard work and fighting spirit my team shows in every game.
We defended the honor of the club.
Last season, the team’s overall lineup strength has been improved to a certain extent. Has this improvement prompted you to design technical and tactical upgrades?
What approach did you take during the transition?
How do you feel about the results achieved?
To create a team’s technical and tactical style, it must first be based on the team’s positioning and goals.
Our team used to focus on defense, using a dense and compact formation to do a good job of defending, while waiting for opportunities to counterattack.
Based on this game mode, the team can achieve relegation, but the ability to actively create opportunities is insufficient, and it is difficult to enter the middle and upper reaches of the standings.
As you said, in the process of technical and tactical upgrading, it is inevitable to experience some bottlenecks and difficult periods, and in the process of going through these, what kind of game state do the players reflect?
Retrofitting based on reality is more difficult than tearing down and starting over.
On the defensive end, more emphasis is placed on discipline and sense of position, the defense and protection between formations, and the hard work and dedication of the players.
In contrast, the offensive end needs to hold the ball to actively create opportunities and take risks. The team needs to organize the offense from the backcourt, press the overall formation forward to the opponent’s half court, need to transfer the ball efficiently, and need to create locally
number advantage etc.
This requires a high degree of tacit understanding between the players, and all players need to be ready to respond, even if they sometimes encounter high-intensity oppression from the opponent.
Only in this way can scoring opportunities be created and converted into points.
It takes a lot of time to adjust and prepare, but there is no doubt that we have made up our minds and want to play a more proactive football.
Of course there is a price to pay sometimes, when your formation presses forward and more people participate in the attack, the more space you leave for the opponent.
We need to put energy on the offensive end while never forgetting the importance of defense.
After experiencing Haikou’s excellent performance in the first stage, what is the reason for the team’s poor performance after returning to the home and away game system?
First of all, how do you adjust as a coach, and what kind of signal do you send to the players?
That’s exactly what happened.
When we came back to our hometown, back to our home court, back to our fans, the state of the team did decline.
We maintained a good momentum in the first game of the second stage and won Beijing Guoan at home. Since then, many changes have occurred and many problems have occurred.
There were consecutive red cards that should not have appeared in the game. These unnecessary red cards are undoubtedly what we need to avoid, but the most important thing is that we lack the core players on the offensive end of the frontcourt.
Kalanga was in a hot state in the first stage, but his state declined after that, and Dorado also left.
The team experienced some emotional out-of-control situations at various stages of last season, or relatively serious foul situations, which also affected the use of personnel to some extent. How did you communicate with everyone on this issue?
We are a tough one to beat because we never give up.
This fighting spirit and aggression is engraved in the DNA of the team, but we should not be an impulsive, reckless team.
In some scenes of the game, the pace is fast, the intensity is high, and the intensity of confrontation is also high. Players made some foul actions on the field and were awarded a red card. I think it is acceptable, and this kind of mistake will be made by both players. Our team
The season also encountered many serious fouls by opponents, which also led to constant injuries.
But it is true that we have had many avoidable cards this season.
Yellow cards and red cards are the price we should pay for our own impulsiveness and recklessness. I have no excuse for this. Some players have shown very unprofessional attitudes. They should be punished.
A serious penalty was imposed because it was not in the overall interest of the team.
You know your players well.
From your point of view, for example, the Dorado incident caused the club and the team to suffer a lot of losses. Why did they have this situation?
Everyone can see what happened, I can’t comment too much on that incident.
But I want to say that when Dorado played for Henan, he gave his all.
As a team, we lost our offensive core, which is a huge loss!
