Following China's football explosive winter transferring, Season 2016 of CSL kicked off on Mar 4th. Huge stars like Teixeira, Ramires, Jackson Martínez, Lavezzi, Gervais Yao Kouassi who used to only present on TV are now in front of numerous Chinese fans for real, and played as phenomenally as their worth of value. At the same time, the deep-rooted weakness of China's youth training system cannot be ignored, at the beginning of the year in the international youth match Al-Kass World Cup hosted by Qatar Aspire Academy,Shanghai Shenhua FC U17 representing China lost to European FC youth teams in a row by a large gap, ended up ranking last in 12 teams.

Only by doing well in youth training can China football advance in the future. It requires down-to-earth efforts of all levels working in accord with football rules. It is commonsense and a lesson we learned that youth training is key and fundamental to improvement. As campus football develops, football participants will also increase, how to select the elites still takes more endeavors; to perfect training system and open up talent transfer channels are priorities, China still needs more competitions in which they play strong teams to get annealed. Youth training is an immense system which requires joint efforts from all subtle segments of football value chain. How to construct youth training system well, reinforce youth coach teams should be focused. Then China football base can be cemented and the soar of it won't be long.
