Chelsea backlash a lesson for clubs chasing China cash

first_img0Shares0000Football: Chelsea backlash a lesson for clubs chasing China cash © AFP / Adrian DENNISHONG KONG, China, Jul 28 – Kenedy’s offensive social media posts about China sparked calls for his club Chelsea to be banned from the country and were a spectacular own goal in a lucrative market.Experts say that while the controversy will have only limited impact on Chelsea’s popularity in China, it serves as a warning to European clubs chasing riches in the world’s second-biggest economy. The Brazilian’s career at the Premier League champions was already on the wane when last week, while Chelsea were in China on a pre-season tour supposed to win new fans, Kenedy published two posts on Instagram that ignited a firestorm.The first contained what many interpreted as a profanity aimed at China and a second showed a security guard asleep and the caption: “Wake up China. You idiot.”Kenedy and the club subsequently apologised but when the furore refused to die down Chelsea banished the 21-year-old from their Asia tour this week.Chen Zhongjie, head of global strategic business at Chinese sports marketing firm Hupu.com, said Chelsea should have acted faster to apologise and punish the player.“It is quite obvious that Chelsea didn’t pay enough attention to this at the beginning, which led to the continuation of the negative impact,” Chen said.“It seems they are being pushed by public opinion instead of actively handling the issue. They still let Kenedy on the pitch after this (last Saturday against Arsenal in Beijing).“This thing will blow over quite soon and the Chinese football fans will forgive Chelsea, but they will not forgive Kenedy.“Chelsea’s experience is a warning to other clubs — if you want to tap into the Chinese market you must be sincere and respectful.”– ‘Shut your mouth’ –The reaction in China to Kenedy’s antics was fierce.Even non-football fans condemned him on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter, some calling for Chelsea to be banned for insulting the country.State media soon weighed in and an opinion piece in the People’s Daily, the official mouthpiece of the ruling Communist Party, said the affair was “humiliating China”.“Even though Kenedy and Chelsea have apologised the matter cannot be dropped,” raged the editorial.“It should be said that today China is more and more powerful and confident.“We may tolerate good advice, but we will not tolerate morbid behaviour that hurts China.“To people who want to make trouble, please shut your mouth.”Mark Dreyer, a Beijing-based expert on sports business in China, said rabid comment in official media should not be overstated because it plays to a nationalist niche and is ignored by many Chinese.“China being ‘humiliated’? Of course not,” said Dreyer, founder of the China Sports Insider website.“The vast majority of people would not be able to pick Kenedy out of a line-up and don’t care.“I think this will all blow over pretty quickly because Kenedy is not a massive star and football fans tend to be forgiving of what their players do off the field.“It certainly won’t help them win over new fans but I’d be surprised if it drives current fans away.”It is a lesson for European teams in how quickly and fiercely controversy can rage in China at perceived slights to the country, experts say.But it is also a warning for young footballers, especially when they are cooped up in hotel rooms far from home, said Rowan Simons, China-based author and expert on sport and media in the country.“Young players — and people — should learn about the dangers of tweeting or sending information to social media and the repercussions that can have,” he said.“But definitely time to move on.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Spurs chief relishing make-or-break run

first_img1 Mauricio Pochettino insists he is relishing Tottenham’s busy fixture schedule.Spurs face a tough run of six games in 17 days, with the Capital One Cup final meeting with Chelsea on March 1 sandwiched between crucial Europa League and Premier League games.It is a make-or-break period for the north London club, but Pochettino is confident he has a strong enough squad to cope with the demands of juggling three competitions.“This is our 42nd official game tomorrow in seven months,” the Argentine said, ahead of the first leg of the Europa League last 32 tie against Fiorentina in Florence on Thursday. “It’s important to manage the squad and always analyse after the games each case and each player. And after to be clever and select the best player to play in each game.“For me, I prefer to play every three days because it’s a good sign we are in all competitions.“We have a strong squad for playing in the Europa League, Premier League and the final of Capital One Cup against Chelsea. I am happy.“There is not a special worry about that. All the squad are fit and we are in a very good way.”Spurs are approaching every match “like a final” now, Pochettino says, and the importance of a positive first-leg result against Fiorentina is clear.Like Spurs, Vincenzo Montella’s side are pushing for Champions League qualification in the league and are amongst the contenders for the Europa League.They arrive in north London with a number of players well-versed with English football, varying from Micah Richards to Mohamed Salah, but Pochettino does not believe that experience will hinder Spurs’ chances.In addition, the Tottenham head coach does not believe the exit of Fiorentina’s star turn Juan Cuadrado to Chelsea during the winter transfer window will prove much of a helping hand to his team.“I believe that Cuadrado is an unbelievable player, but it is true that Fiorentina have a strong squad, a lot of good players,” he said.“Yes, we watch a lot of games from Fiorentina in the last period and it is a very, very good team.“It is true that Cuadrado is a very, very, very good player, but in the end I think Fiorentina have a lot of players that can replace him and do the same job.”That quality means the bookmakers are struggling to guess who will progress from the tie, with Pochettino well aware of how tough these games will be.“I agree that it’s 50/50 and I think it’s a tough game,” he added.“I think we share the same philosophy, Tottenham and Fiorentina.“Maybe we play in different ways, the system is different. Fiorentina play one, five or three and use different systems during different games, but we play 4-2-3-1. But a lot of the philosophy, yes.” Mauricio Pochettino last_img read more

first_img The Volkswagen Arena Spectators in the VIP area were prevented from leaving the Volkswagen Arena following Manchester United’s 3-2 defeat to Wolfsburg after a suspect package was found in a car park outside the stadium.They had to wait for approximately 15 minutes as police looked at the package.

Go get Defoe! Striker can have Zlatan-like impact on LIVERPOOL, talkSPORT told

first_imgJermain Defoe could be Liverpool’s version of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, talkSPORT has been told.The veteran striker has shone for Sunderland this season despite their struggles, firing 14 Premier League goals in 32 appearances.He will be available on a free transfer following the club’s relegation and, according to Tony Cascarino, he should be on Jurgen Klopp’s radar.That is because the former Chelsea, Marseille and Republic of Ireland striker believes the 34-year-old could have a similar impact on Liverpool to the one Ibrahimovic has had on Manchester United.Ibrahimovic has been a revelation since arriving at Old Trafford on a free last summer, firing 17 goals in 28 league games before injury cut short his season, to make a mockery of those who doubted whether he could still perform at the highest level at the age of 35.Speaking to Jim White on talkSPORT, Cascarino said: “One player I would take in for Liverpool, who is clinical, is Defoe.“It is a bit like the Zlatan move that United did, when you go and get a guy who has been around for years, a talisman.“I would go for Defoe. He would fit in to Liverpool’s style, the short passing, little interchange movements, quick feet, any chances in front of goal. He is as clinical as anybody.“I would take Jermain for a year. A bit like Man United did with Zlatan, I would get Jermain – and they would get him.”last_img read more
