On October 1, Beijing time, 61 young football players, more than 40 coaches and base staff from Shanghai Genbao Football Base celebrated the double festival together. Xu Genbao also raised his expectations to the young players.
Xu Genbao encouraged the young players: "The next double festival will be 11 years later, which is 2031. At that time, you were 23 or 24 years old, the best age for football players. At that time, I hope you can be in the Super League club. To be effective, we must work hard to enter the Chinese national team and win glory for the motherland."
Fan Zhiyi, vice chairman of the Shanghai Football Association and director of Genbao Youth Training, also said at the scene: "You guys have a very high starting point, but you will definitely encounter unsatisfactory distress here and feel uncomfortable. Faced with difficulties, I hope you can persevere, and everything depends on persistence. I hope that through your hard work, you can play for the Chinese Super League professional club and realize your dreams in the near future."
