  "From today onwards, my coaching staff and I will not continue to coach in the Dalian Football Club." Last weekend, the Spanish coach Benitez sent a farewell letter to the Dalian Football Club and the Chinese Super League. The fate of the league is locked in one and a half years.

  In the preparation period before the new season, Benitez is not the first well-known foreign teacher to choose to leave the Super League.

Before him, Shanghai SIPG coach Pereira, Beijing Guoan coach Genesio, Guangzhou R&F coach Van Bronckhorst and other big-name foreign teachers have announced their termination of the team.

  With the new round of transfer window officially opened from January 1 this year (will continue to February 28), the new season of the Super League has entered the full preparation stage.

  Compared with the transfer signings of tens of millions of euros in previous seasons, the club investment in the new season is no longer a "familiar formula". With the introduction of new league policies such as the upgraded salary limit order, it has swept the Chinese Super League for nearly 10 years. The "Golden Dollar Football" of 1991 gradually ebbs, and the Chinese Super League is brewing a new "shuffle".

  The "Golden Dollar Football" of the Chinese Super League has been cold, and it has already appeared since last season.

With the Chinese Football Association’s first salary limit after the end of the 2019 season and the sudden impact of the epidemic, the total investment in signings for the Super League last season has fallen sharply, which is only the same as 10 years ago.

  The value of the league transfer king and Shanghai SIPG foreign aid Lopez is only 5.4 million euros, which is less than a fraction of the previous transfers of major foreign players such as Hulk and Oscar to the Super League.

  After the end of last season, the Chinese Football Association further introduced an upgraded version of the salary limit order-Chinese Super League clubs must not exceed 600 million yuan in a single season, domestic players must not exceed 5 million yuan before tax in a single season, and foreign players must not exceed 3 million euros before tax. , The total salary of foreign aid does not exceed 10 million euros, etc., so that the Chinese Super League teams are further put on a "tight spell" in terms of league investment.

  Under the New Deal, those foreign aid and foreign teachers in the Super League with huge and high salaries are facing a new choice.

  A large number of big-name foreign teachers in the Chinese Super League represented by Benitez have bid farewell to the Chinese Super League during the league preparation period. Of course there are uncertainties brought about by the epidemic, but after the implementation of the new league policy, the income may drop sharply. The main reason for the Super League.

  It is reported that the annual salary of Benitez and his team in the Dalian Club is as high as 13.5 million euros (about 106 million yuan).

With the escalation of the Super League salary limit, Benitez will not only be unable to introduce big-name foreign aid, but its own income will also be affected, leaving the Super League to become inevitable.

  In addition to big-name foreign teachers, many big-name foreign aids who have held amazingly high salaries in the Super League have also turned away this winter.

  SIPG foreign aid Hulk, Suning foreign aid Teixeira, Luneng foreign aid Pellet and others, who have received over 10 million euros in the Super League, have all terminated their contracts with the club or ended their contracts.

  Next, Shanghai Shenhua's Shalawi and even Guangzhou Evergrande's meritorious foreign aid Paulinho and others may also say goodbye to the Super League.

  With the departure of high-paid foreign teachers and foreign aid, the Chinese Super League teams pay more attention to cost-effectiveness and practicality when choosing foreign teachers and foreign aid.

  Compared with the annual salary of tens of millions of euros by Benitez and Pereira, the cost of recruiting foreign teachers in the Super League team has been greatly reduced.

  According to Shanghai media reports, the newly signed Croatian coach Lecco, who is newly signed to coach SIPG, has an annual salary of 2.5 million euros.

Bilic, who has coached the Croatian national team and the Premier League team, earns 3.5 million euros in Guoan, only half of his predecessor, Genesio.

  After being unable to attract big-name forwards with a large amount of money, low-investment midfielders have become the "goodies" in the Super League transfer market.

In addition, the attention of clubs for hiring has also shifted from the top five European leagues to more cost-effective player markets such as South Korea, Japan, and Croatia.

  In terms of new foreign aid, Shenhua bought the Croatian Jonic, who was twice elected as the best central defender in the J-League for less than 1.5 million euros; SIPG introduced Croatian central defender Mestorovich with a transfer fee of 3 million euros. ; Luneng spends 1.5 million euros an annual salary to introduce Korea K-League MVP Sun Junhao...

  In the 2011 season, Guangzhou Evergrande successfully surpassed the Super League and also opened the "Golden Dollar Era" of the Chinese Super League. The total investment in the Chinese Super League winter window signings soared from 5.9 million Euros in the 2010 season to 24.29 million Euros.

In the following seasons, the investment of the Chinese Super League teams continued to increase, and the "sky price" foreign aid and foreign teachers repeatedly set new highs, which once shocked the world football.

  While the high investment has brought big-name foreign aid and high attention to the Chinese Super League, it has not brought substantial improvement to the quality of the league and Chinese football. On the contrary, the survival and development environment of the entire league has become worse and more and more clubs. Can't make ends meet and even quit.

  In all fairness, the Chinese Football Association has launched a series of new policies in the past two seasons, hoping that more Chinese Super League clubs can change the previous crazy investment regardless of cost, so that clubs can achieve sustainable development by improving the "bloodmaking" function.

  In this sense, the return of the Chinese Super League teams to rationality in the new season is a high probability event.

  However, how to find a balance between controlling costs and improving the quality of the league, and retaining fans and sponsors by effectively enhancing the competitiveness and excitement of the league is also a problem that the Chinese Football Association and Chinese Super League teams must think about and solve.
