Tiger Fight, October 25th Beijing time tonight, Everton will go to an away game to challenge Southampton. Before the game, An Shuai said in an interview: Everton is now refreshed, and entering Europe is the goal of the season.
He said: "Compared with last season, the atmosphere and spirit on our training ground are completely refreshed."
"You know, last season was very difficult for everyone. The team had a bad start, and then changed coaches, and then I arrived, but the epidemic soon began to break out and we all had to be isolated at home."
"So this season is really complicated. Players can switch quickly and prepare for the new season with a different mental outlook. This is the key."
"As of now, our goal has not changed. The team has a good start. We have always wanted to enter the European arena again. We want to play in the European arena next season, so there are two possibilities-Europa League or the Champions League."
"We hope to achieve this goal, which is important to us and the club."
So far, Ancelotti has led Everton to 7 victories in the first 7 games on various fronts this season. In the Merseyside Derby last week, Everton played 2-2. Tie Liverpool.
Speaking of the last derby, he said: "Derby has demonstrated our competitiveness, but to be honest, we are not on the same level as Liverpool."
"In my opinion, Liverpool are one of the best teams in Europe. There is no doubt about it. I don’t know how far we can catch up with them. Really, we are not at the same level at the moment. We have to do this. Work hard."
"Experience, knowledge, all these things, we have to improve the level of the team year after year, and have a little patience. Of course we can't get the best results right away, we need time, I think we can reach one in England Very good level."
"I love football, I love what I do, I can keep the passion that I used to play football on the street as a child."
"The most exciting part of my job is training. I like to be on the court, with my players, work hard with them, work hard together."
"The most difficult part of our work is the selection of the lineup. Sometimes it makes you a bit difficult because you have to tell some players not to play, and sometimes they should play, but the selection of the lineup is very detailed."
"In the end, although time flies, I am really, really happy to be here. I like the atmosphere here. The club is like a family, so I feel very comfortable."
