Tiger Fighting, October 12 In response to the inappropriate remarks made by Sichuan Youbixuan coach Li Yi after the game last night, the Sichuan media "Red Star News" believes that Li Yi lacks sufficient knowledge and awareness of Sichuan football.
On the evening of October 11th, Sichuan Youbei Xuan led 1-0 to the 91st minute in the 9th round of the first stage of the Chinese League match against Nantong Zhiyun, but lost 2 goals in stoppage time, 1-2. Was lore. Although the outcome of this game is not important to Sichuan Youbixuan-they have no hope of entering the championship group, but Sichuan Youbixuan's coach Li Yi's remarks after the game caused great dissatisfaction among Sichuan fans. .
Compared with Nantong Zhiyun coach Xie Hui, who was full of excitement after the game, Sichuan Youbixuan coach Li Yi looked very depressed. He said at the press conference after the game: "This is football. This is also the charm of football. Football also has a component of luck. We wore a yellow jersey in 8 of the 9 games and we didn’t win. On the contrary, we won one game with a blue jersey. This is luck!"
"It's the jersey that loses, Li Yi, do you know the meaning of yellow for Sichuan football? You touched the bottom line of Sichuan football!" A Sichuan "fan leader" said angrily after hearing Li Yi's remarks. Well-known fans told Red Star News reporters immediately after the game: "Did you hear Li Yi's post-match speech? You will be pissed off!"
As we all know, the yellow jersey is of unusual significance to Sichuan football. From the beginning of the “yellow rush” by Sichuan Quanxing in the first year of A-A in 1994, the yellow represents the struggle history and honor book of Sichuan football. After the Sichuan Crown City was disbanded, the Sichuan army that took over basically followed the "yellow spirit". Only Sichuan Longfa changed its name to Sichuan Annapurna and changed to wear a red shirt. The Chengdu Football Club, which has always used the red jersey as its tradition, also wore the yellow jersey in the 2007 Chengdu Sheffield United’s key surpassing campaign.
After Sichuan Youbian took over the flag of Sichuan football, it also used yellow as the color of its home jersey, which means that it has fully inherited the traditional Sichuan football mantle. When Sichuan Youbican released the new season jerseys this year, the club also specifically emphasized the "Quanxing Yellow" at home and the away "Man City Blue" (one of the shareholders of Sichuan Youbican is Manchester City's investor City Football Group).
Therefore, in the minds of some Sichuan fans, it may be acceptable to accept the team’s unsatisfactory record for the time being, to accept two goals in stoppage time and to suffer a lore loss, but they cannot accept the Sichuan army coach’s disrespect for the "yellow shirt", even It's just a joke, a joke.
The Red Star News reporter learned from people familiar with the matter that Li Yi was actually more of a self-deprecation at the time. "So Li Yi did not expect that Sichuan fans would react so fiercely, mainly because he lacked sufficient knowledge and knowledge of Sichuan football. ."
