Chinese Players Unfit to Play well in Friendly: Coach
    2008-12-14 13:52:13     Xinhua

The Chinese players are not fit enough to play well in the four-nation tournament, said the caretaker coach of Chinese soccer team Yin Tiesheng.

The Chinese team have now arrived in Oman for the tournament, which Yin hopes could help improve his players' physical fitness.

"We only started our training camp four days ago, and the players are tired after a rather exhausting season. So it's not reasonable to expect good performance from them now," he said.

"We are going to play the friendlies in hope that they could help make my players physically prepared for the forthcoming Asian Cup qualifiers."

The 52-year-old Yin, who has been appointed to prepare for two Asian Cup qualifiers in January, also expressed his misgivings about some players' weak nerves.

"Some players are confident off the pitch and not on the pitch. I need to have some talks with them, and it is also very important to help them grow up mentally," he said.
