[Special Report]Chelsea Football School (Hong Kong) just won the Hong Kong Commercial Times Business Awards 2023 (HKCT Enterprise Award) last month – “The Most Outstanding Local Football School of the Year”, and then launched an exclusive credit card with the bank. Santos, the chief operating officer, was naturally happy. “I can’t be happy enough to see the Hong Kong team pass one level after another and historically reach the top four of the Asian Games! This young generation is so good, they have already surpassed us. Hong Kong football really relies on them! ”
Under the leadership of coach Jon Anderson, the Hong Kong team first defeated Palestine 1-0 in the top 16, and then defeated Iran by the same score in the top 8 to reach the top four. Today they will compete with Japan for a spot in the final. “I watched every game! Although we lost to Uzbekistan in both games in the group, the players in the class all played boldly and played hard even in the defeat. When we got to the knockout round, we were even more bold to attack. We didn’t just think about defending and shooting. He stole the chicken from 12 yards and went to play the “shoeshine wave”. Every player on the field fought hard, which is very rare.” Santos talked about his thoughts on the Hong Kong team’s performance in this Asian Games.
Among the members of the Hong Kong team this time, goalkeeper Tony Tse Ka-wing is the one who steals the spotlight. He made many wonderful saves in every game. Especially in the game against Iran, he flew from left to right and blocked the opponent’s attack. “‘Jarong’ joined Chelsea at the age of 12 to play in the elite team with ‘Cen Pei’ (also known as Cen Guopei). At that time, he already felt that he had great potential, but he just felt bored. When he got older, he was already playing in the elite team two years ago. There was a lot of negative news, and I was worried that he would be done with it. I hope that after hitting the wall so many times, he will really be a big boy, so that we and the people who support him will not worry!”
Together with Tse Ka-wing, the Hong Kong team has a total of 7 players in this Asian Games team who were members of the elite team of Chelsea Football School (Hong Kong), including Yu Zaiyin, Lin Yin-ting, Ng Wei-him, Ip Cheuk-man, Liu Jiaqiao and Lin Lok-kin. “Sometimes I feel so proud when I see these pictures. The children at that time became the heroes of Hong Kong football. This may be an exaggeration, but they really relied on their own efforts and blood and sweat to achieve what their predecessors could not achieve. The goal is not a hero, is it?” Santos said with a smile.
Chelsea Football School (Hong Kong) is celebrating its 14th anniversary this year. The former students now shoulder the important task of bringing glory to Hong Kong. No wonder Santos, who has always been kind and generous, couldn’t help but feel: “We decided to set up a football school that day. , the biggest goal is to cultivate players for the local football world. Although in the process, there are many players who we think have great potential, but they choose to give up football or go to play in the second team. It doesn’t matter! It’s good to have one, so We are all so relieved that we are not alone. Hong Kong team, come on!”
