After taking office, the leaders of the new Football Association vowed the administrative program and development plan as before, among which the youth training work was placed in an extremely prominent position.
Looking back on the development history of modern football in China, the national team has lost ground from once to now. From the quasi-first-class in Asia at the beginning, it has fallen to the third-rate now. The real reason lies in the stubbornness of the football system and the exaggeration and failure to implement the youth training.
In 1985, Grandpa Deng proposed that "football should start with dolls". Thirty years later (February 2015), the First Secretary proposed that "we should develop and revitalize the football cause, pay attention to the mass base, consolidate the talent base, start with dolls, start with grassroots units, and start with mass participation".
Therefore, every president of the Football Association has vowed to talk about football from dolls and intensify efforts to do a good job in youth training.
But what about the actual situation?
At present, there are fewer and fewer excellent top players trained by youth training, but more and more players with mediocre skills. The results of the junior and national youth teams are getting worse and worse, and even qualifying for the group in Asia is a luxury.
But why should every leader of the Football Association take youth training as the focus?
Because youth training is a long-term systematic project, it is difficult to show real results and achievements in 3-5 years. The term of office of the president of the Football Association is generally four years. As long as you don’t make mistakes during this period, the youth training work can always be described and written. As for the national team’s performance is getting worse and worse, it can be completely pushed to the predecessor, who did not do a good job in youth training.
In my opinion, as a capable and responsible leader of the Football Association, we should concentrate on the development and implementation of youth training, rather than overemphasizing the illusory youth training (it’s like a family child who has not studied yet, and generally preaches that he should be trained as a schoolmaster in Tsinghua and Peking University). Even if you really want to focus on youth training, can the leaders of the Football Association make a written pledge to fulfill a military order, and what kind of achievements the junior high school and the national youth team will achieve during their term of office? If they fail to achieve their goals, they will resign.
In my opinion, youth training is important and needs constant efforts. However, it is urgent for the leaders of the Football Association to grasp how to change the unreasonable systems of China football and how to govern the current foul-mouthed competition. How to improve the professional ability of football referees; How to locate the real strength of the national team in Asia and work out the actual plan and the achievements and goals that should be achieved in the competition.
Only such a leader of the Football Association can be a good leader with responsibility, courage and sincere desire to promote China football.
Therefore, when the leaders of the Football Association took office, they vowed to do a good job in youth training, which is a real reason for the continuous decline of football in China!
The above analysis is purely personal. Welcome everyone to express their opinions and discuss and exchange for the rise of football in China!
