After the end of the first stage of the Chinese Super League, it was reported that Dalian striker Long Dong will be called up by the national team and return to China to compete. As a result, he may not be able to catch up with the second stage of the Super League. However, the Dalian people officially announced today that Long Dong has returned to the Dalian team to prepare for the game.
The official Weibo of the Dalian team stated: "After a short holiday break, the first team of our club has regrouped on October 4 to prepare for the second stage of the Chinese Super League. Except for Hamsik who returned to China to participate in the national team competition and the selected national team Tong Lei, the other players have all returned to the team. "This means that Long Dong will not return to China to participate in the competition. He can represent the team in the second stage of the Chinese Super League. In the first round of the relegation group, they will face Yongchang.
