BERLIN , March 29 (Xinhua) -- Former Chinese youth team head coach Eckhard Krautzun shared his opinions about Chinese soccer.

Xinhua: Mr. Krautzun, we hope you don't mind if we start with the easiest question we can think of.

Krautzun: (Smiling) I'm listening.

Xinhua: When do you expect China will win the World Cup?

Krautzun: You call that an easy question? I honestly have doubts that any Asian country will win the World Cup in the next 10 years basically because many countries in Asia lack professionalism and basics and general conditions and the ability to catch up with the pace at which the game is played by the world's top teams.

Xinhua: Is the pace the main problem?

Krautzun: As for the pace played by the world's best, you have to say that it's almost impossible to play at that speed in hot and humid climates like the ones in most parts of Asia. And then there are many more reasons like coaching and regular competition. One is the coaching skills.

Xinhua: That might be the situation at the moment, but what can be done by a sports nation like China to improve?

Krautzun: The right step has been taken by President Xi Jinping. China has to build a pyramid of success starting with a coaching system right from the bottom , meaning in the schools. It is coming late but not too late. The mistake in the past maybe is to set up a league like the Super League but at the same time to neglect junior coaching and youth development. Things have turned around now and coaches will have to be trained as well.

Xinhua: So China will have the chance to improve as a football nation and let's say become successful?

Krautzun: Considering its population plus the financial potential and the organization talent, China will become Asia's No. 1, I have no doubt about that.

Xinhua: Could one problem in China be that you have, other than in successful football countries like Spain , France, England and Germany, more of a school or college system than a club system?

Krautzun: In a huge country like China it's extremely difficult to implement a similar club system. Some of China's pro clubs have set up youth academies, but the general problem in the near future will be: Who is training China's school teachers and football coaches. I recommend they get the world's best coaches for the job. At the moment , it's more of a case that coaches with a big reputation are employed by China's senior pro teams. So get back to the roots because that's where the talented youngsters are. You need to know one thing ...

Xinhua: Now we're listening.

Krautzun: In the end you need a national team that is winning something. You basically don't get anywhere by signing foreign stars who don't always deliver what you expect from a star. And your national team won't win anything if you don't do everything to support your youngsters with a solid and methodical coaching system. If you manage to do that, football in China might be able to beat basketball as China's number one sport and table tennis in the future.

Xinhua: The main task is not only to find football talents, but coaching talents?

Krautzun: There are three to four things that have to be done: First train the coaches, the primary school teachers have to learn grass roots football , secondly an efficient scouting system has to be started and then a nationwide league system has to be set up for juniors. At the moment you only have regional tournaments. Lastly Chinese clubs or the football association should send as many talented players and teams to foreign countries, to Europe or South America, to get competition against the best youth teams.

Xinhua: At the moment, the football world is talking about Chinese clubs signing stars from all over the world. Do you think the strategy will help or are the foreign stars blocking the chances for Chinese youngsters?

Krautzun: Twenty years ago the North American league made the mistake of only buying foreign stars instead of putting in place an efficient coaching system for juniors. It did not succeed , the league broke down. Now two decades later they have come to the conclusion that it is better to have a youth coaching system in colleges and start with very modest salaries for players in the pro league.

In China at the moment the rules are clear, you are allowed to have four players on the pitch over the 90 minutes. The difference in China, compared to the mistakes the Americans made 20 years ago, is that they have started coaching football in the schools. It will never work out without taking such a step. If both are done , foreign stars and youth coaching, it can be successful. If you look at Guangzhou Evergrande, they have won the Asian Championship with outstanding performances and players and an outstanding coaching stuff. So if you get into a situation whereby Chinese youngsters can learn from foreign stars then things will be positive, but you have to avoid foreign stars blocking your own talents.

Xinhua: So you are sure China has the skilled players that can develop to top class players?

Krautzun: Let us go back to 2005 when I was in charge of the Chinese under 19 team. We scouted the best Chinese players with four German scouts and in a short time , which was amazing, the youngsters developed to an amazing level and played a great World Cup in the Netherlands against the best Youth teams in the world. Eight of these players became senior internationals which is an excellent number and its shows there's a lot of talented players in China. But you have to find them and teach them modern football with methodical coaching and then the country will be able to compete with any team in the world.

Xinhua: What in your opinion happened after 2005? China's football has not managed to have similar success. Did China's football make the mistake of stopping, let's say, half way?

Krautzun: It Elements. Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Cheap Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys From China Wholesale Authentic NHL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale NCAA Jerseys From China Cheap Basketball Jerseys
