On July 2, Dalian Yifang Club announced the signing of the Spanish coach Rafa Benitez, which caused a sensation in the entire football world. As a well-known "master of tactics" in world football, Benitez is one of the biggest coaches in the history of Chinese football. Benitez's effect after taking office is also very significant. Only 5 days after taking office, Dalian Yicong beat Henan Jianye 3:1 at home, ushering in a good start to the coach. In addition to the good start on the results, the fans also said that Master Bei made the team look completely new. In the 3-1 victory over Henan Jianye, Dalian Yifang was aggressive and decisive in passing the ball. The wind of Liverpool. However, such a big and powerful world coach is a very humble person.
July 10, Beni On the one-week anniversary of Tes’s appointment, he posted a weekly diary on his personal website, expressing his views on the first week of his China trip. He said: Clubs, players, and fans respect him, and China’s cultural heritage is very deep.
Benitez wrote: "My coaching team and I have visited so many countries. We have worked in Spain, Italy, and the UK for many years, but we have never had such a unique experience. We are in a country with thousands of years of cultural heritage and traditions. This was noticed from the first moment I entered China... When watching a documentary about China on the plane, I was shocked by many characteristics, including the Chinese. With respect to their teachers, they explain what life is and show how to write words. Chinese calligraphy is definitely an art. A little bit about Chinese culture, I also found that they not only built the Great Wall, but also invented gunpowder and other things, includingPaper, carts and even pasta! Marco Polo brought pasta after his visit to China, and it has become synonymous with Italian cuisine for many years. The Grand Canal that unites the Yangtze River and the Huai River is an engineering achievement that is comparable to the Great Wall in complexity, ambition and practicality. Well, as Spanish says: "otro mundo", it is another world, and I hope to continue to discover it and share it with those who want to know our experience in China. ”
As a world-renowned world-famous marshal, Benitez’s people are as they are, gentle, humble, and approachable. In a new country and new environment, you can always discover the good things here. In contrast, after some unknown foreign aids and coaches came to China, their own level was not very good, the career path was not smooth, and they left After China did not forget to smear China exaggeratedly, it is really "a gentleman is magnanimous, but a villain grows weary. "I hope Benitez's coaching career in Dalian will be smooth sailing!
