Assistant coach Li Jinyu is in danger

On December 3, the Chinese Football Association issued an official announcement, agreeing to the resignation request of the former national team coach Li Tie, and at the same time announcing that Wuhan team coach Li Xiaopeng will be the new head coach of the national team.

As a forward, he represented the Chinese national team in 73 appearances in various international competitions and scored 26 goals. In addition, Li Jinyu has also won the Chinese Super League Championship, the Football Association Cup Championship and the Chinese Super League “Golden Boot” honors. He is also the first player in the history of the Chinese Football League to score 100 goals.

Li Jinyu came to the Wuhan club with Li Xiaopeng at the beginning of this year as an assistant coach. However, in the first stage of the Chinese Super League this year, the Wuhan team had a particularly difficult run, and it was too late to win. 14 league games, until the 13th round did not usher in the first win of the season. In the end, after the end of the first stage, the Wuhan team entered the “relegation group” with a record of 1 win, 8 draws, 5 losses and 11 points.
