Commission for supervision and investigation.

  Li Tie's name is very familiar to the Chinese men's football team.

The "iron waist" who has been guarding the midfield of the national team for many years in his player career also showed his face on the stage of the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup.

  During the ups and downs, he has always been on the front line to experience the changes of Chinese football.

In May 2012, Li Tie was invited by Lippi to Guangzhou Evergrande as a physical assistant coach, officially completed the transformation and entered the coaching position.

  After Lippi resigned at the end of 2019, the national team faced the search for a new coach.

Wang Baoshan, Li Xiaopeng, and Li Tie competed for posts, and in the end Li Tie won by virtue of his experience in coaching with a national name.

  As early as 2014, Li Tie helped coach Perrin prepare for the Asian Cup as an assistant coach of the national football team, and did not leave the national team until the end of the following year.

Less than a year later, he was brought to the national team by Lippe as the team leader, and he has come and gone freely in the national football account for many years.

  Playing in 10 World Preliminary matches and achieving 5 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, this is the answer sheet that Li Tie handed over when he coached the national football team.

  The national football team under Li Tie won all four games in the second half of the top 40. Although the bumpy game process slightly reduced points, it also paved the way for the top 12 games, but overall, the top 40 results Single is still generally satisfactory.

  What put Li Tie into a coaching crisis was after entering the top 12.

  After losing to Australia and Japan in the opening game, Li Tie's social media comment area changed from "blowing your hair is so beautiful" during the top 40 game to "laughing at life" is not worthy.

  Judging from the strength of the national football team, it is normal to lose to the Australian and Japanese teams. The key is that they have no power to parry during the game, which is surprising.

  Afterwards, the surprise victory over Vietnam saved the bottom line of the national football team in the top 12. However, it regretted losing to Saudi Arabia and being drawn by Oman, leaving only theoretical hope for the national football team to hit the World Cup.

  Therefore, Li Tie's formation, especially the use of players such as Luo Guofu and Alan, has caused a considerable upsurge of public opinion.

  And after Exxon, Luo Guofu, Alan, and Jiang Guangtai were sent to "conform to public opinion", the national football team drew 1:1 with the Australian team, which could have slightly improved the public opinion environment.

  But after the game against Australia, in a 32-minute post-match press conference, Li Tie, who was fully fired, escalated the conflict further.

  After the game, Li Tie's advertising content on social media made him sink even deeper in the vortex of public opinion.

  As a professional coach, there is nothing wrong with accepting commercial advertisements and endorsements. This is also common in other sports teams, but the act of arbitrarily advertising competing products for national team sponsors obviously breaks the business rules in black and white.

  As the coach of the national football team, it is unjustifiable to take the lead in breaching the contract under the slogan "Unity is iron", and the series of off-court turmoil caused by this has boosted and even accelerated the process of "dismissing get out of class".

  Now Li Tie... besides sighing, is still sighing.
