The Dutch trainer lost with his club Guangzhou R&F the second league game of the season against Dutch champion Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao 5-0. Van Bronckhorst made his debut on Sunday with a 3-0 loss to Shenzhen FC in the Super League, the start of which was delayed by almost five months due to the corona crisis.
“All in all a very disappointing start for myself, but also for the team and the club,” said the 45-year-old from Rotterdam. “We still have thirteen games to go, but it must be much better, because what I have seen now is not the way I want to see the team play.”
However, the second game also had a disappointing course for Guangzhou R&F. Paulinho, the Brazilian captain of Guangzhou Evergrande, opened the score early on. The championship team of trainer Fabio Cannavaro then ran out to a generous victory. Van Bronckhorst is in group A with his team, with Dalian as the regular playing city. The duels from group B, including eight clubs, are in Suzhou.
