At the post-match press conference, Cui Kangxi, the head coach of the Shanghai Greenland Shenhua team, first said: "Thank you for the players who worked hard to the end. We also have regrets for this game. The result of this game is not too bad. I hope the team can be in the first place. The second round played better."
Speaking of Shenhua's eight games this season with zero opponents, becoming the number one in the Chinese Super League, Cui Kangxi said: "Last year the team conceded more goals in the league, so reducing the league conceded this year has become our goal. Not only It’s a backcourt player. The whole team is engaged in defense together. This is also the reason why we can improve on defense. Of course, the players on our defense line are doing very well and I am very grateful to them.
Talking about the two foreign players who were not on the field and the player injuries that appeared in today’s game, Cui Kangxi said: “The new foreign aid is still in the process of adapting. Today’s game has a faster pace and the team is more defensive. So I didn't find a chance to replace them. Zhao Mingjian's injury may be more serious, Moreno should be fine, Zhu Chenjie had a sprained ankle, so he replaced him."
Speaking of today’s game venue, Cui Kangxi said frankly: “The game is played in a neutral position, so there is no home or away point, but the fans came to the scene to cheer, and the players gained a lot of power from them.”
