In the course of football in China, foreign aid has always played a decisive role. Among them, the 33-year-old foreign aid Jin Yuyou from South Korea has become a leader in the Super League. According to the Korean media OSEN report, Jin Jianyou received quotations from many giants in Japan’s J League and South Korea’s K League when his contract was about to expire, and is expected to leave the Super League for free.
Jin Jianyou’s career began in 2010, and he started his own football tour in the J League team Bird Habitat Sandstone. He also played for South Shui Yuan’s Samsung and Jin Quan’s Shangwu, and has rich experience in Korean leagues. In 2022, Jin Jianyou joined Chengdu Rongcheng with his mentor Xu Zhengyuan and quickly became the backbone of the team. According to sources, even J-League teams qualified for the AFC Champions League have taken a keen interest in Jin Jianyou, taking a fancy to his advantages of being fluent in Japanese and competent in multiple positions.
This season, Jin Jianyou played 23 Super League games for Chengdu Rongcheng, contributing 6 goals and 4 assists. Last season, he also handed in four goals and seven assists. After two seasons, Jin Jianyou scored 21 goals in the Super League, showing his excellent offensive ability. It is worth mentioning that the new Football Association will soon follow up the AFC Champions League foreign aid policy, and the Super League is expected to restart Asian foreign aid. At this critical moment, it will undoubtedly be a great loss for China football to let Jin Guiyou go.
Jin Jianyou’s play in Chengdu Rongcheng can be described as incisive, and his departure will undoubtedly make the team and fans feel sorry. However, the vagaries of the football world make all this unpredictable. Jin Guiyou’s free departure may bring opportunities to other teams in the Super League, but for China football, it is undoubtedly a loss if he finally loses such a powerful player.
Among Jin Guiyou’s potential next home, teams from J League and K League have offered him olive branches. This Korean foreign aid who can speak fluent Japanese is likely to continue his brilliant career in Asia. While facing great competitive pressure, the Super League team also needs to constantly adjust its strategy and plan for the team’s future. Under the background of AFC Champions League policy adjustment, Chinese Super League teams need to increase the signing efforts and cultivate more powerful Asian foreign aid. Although it is a pity that Jin Guiyou will leave, it may inspire the team and the Football Association to change their signing strategies. Let’s look forward to the performance of China football in the future and see if Chengdu Rongcheng can make up for this vacancy and reproduce its glory. (Laoqiu Super Ball Review)
