On December 12, this season, Nantong Zhiyun of Zhongjia was successful in two rounds ahead of schedule. Football News interviewed Fan Bing, an investor of the club, and talked about the feelings and future planning of the team since its establishment seven years ago.
Talking about the feeling of overtaking-
If you choose to use phrases to describe it, I think there are only sixteen words: a city, a team, a monument, and a lifelong belief! In fact, after seven years of hard work, I think that Nantong Zhiyun is no longer a matter of one person or a group of people, and it is gradually becoming an important symbol and cultural carrier of this city.
Talking about unforgettable moments-
One scene that I can’t forget so far is that on October 27th, Vòng 20 của giải vô địch Bundesliga mùa 21-22 2018, we successfully rushed to the armor under the witness of more than 50,000 fans. Later, I saw a documentary about the game made by CCTV. The film truly recorded countless Shaanxi fans queuing for tickets all night in the cold late autumn night, and Nantong fans who rushed to Xi ‘an from all over the country, especially on the flight from Nantong to Xi ‘an in the early morning, from first class to economy class was almost chartered by Nantong fans. As soon as my family and I got on the plane, we were given seats to first class by enthusiastic Nantong fans, which was really touching. At the moment when Nantong Zhiyun was the winner in the game, 50,000 fans at the home of Shaanxi Sports Center were silent, leaving only the picture of Nantong fans crying in the stands and celebrating … Until now, I can’t help but burst into tears every time I think about it.
Talking about how the club can get through the difficult times-
To tell the truth, Di Maria không vội vàng tham gia Juventus, anh muốn tham gia nhất là Barcelona. these years have been quite difficult. I was impressed several times. One time, in 2017, the shareholders suddenly withdrew their capital, which led to the shortage of funds. I had no choice but to sell the houses in Guangzhou and Shanghai to raise money and pay wages. Another time was at the end of 2019, when the newly introduced shareholders withdrew their funds in 2018. No way, I transferred the equity of power plants with good profit prospects to listed companies for emergency. At that time, when football was popular in Jinyuan, the investment in football was really bottomless, and shareholders withdrew. I can understand that, but I still want to thank them for accompanying Zhiyun in some stages of growth.
On the significance of the team’s overtaking-
The significance of Zhiyun Chongchao to me is that I have fulfilled my promise to the fans and the city. Of course, I have fulfilled my recent goal and dream, which is also an account for myself, my family and the team. After all, Vòng đua thứ 38 của giải vô địch 20-21 everyone has been purely paying for it for so many years. I think this moment is deserved.
Talking about the feeling of overtaking-
To tell the truth, after playing football for so many years, although I have been drinking ice for seven years, it is difficult to cool my blood. The club has spanned seven spring and autumn periods, and "Nantong Zhiyun" not only survived tenaciously, but also fulfilled its original promise of going from China B to China Super League one year ahead of schedule. If you give me another chance to choose, I will still choose to be a footballer, because I love my city and football deeply! Nantong needs a professional football team to endorse the culture and spirit of the city and to carry people’s passion and love for the city. I also believe that Jiangsu football will have a better tomorrow, and I believe that China football will take off, and China’s football industry will become the center of the world, alaba cho thấy hình ảnh của chính mình： đừng chiếm chỗ của chúng tôi! because we have a strong motherland and the largest and best fans in the world.
