As the 2019/2020 campaign draws to a close, it is now time to recognize the outstanding performer of the CSL season. This year’s award goes to Guangzhou Evergrande’s Paulinho.
Before Evergrande won its first title in 2013, the best performance of Chinese clubs in the Champions League was a semi-final appearance, which both Dalian Shide and Shenzhen FC managed in 2003 and 2005 respectively. Chinese football has since entered a dark period.
FIFA World Cup champion Fabio Cannavaro is not enjoying the best moment in his career as coach of the Chinese Super League powerhouse Guangzhou Evergrande.
The 30-year-old football player has received his citizenship certificate from the Chinese officials and will join Marcello Lippi’s team to seek a chance to enter the final stages of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
