Dear Zhou en Jin,
Good to hear that you are going to participate in the Ajax Camp at ‘De Toekomst’ next summer. Have you ever participated in an Ajax Camp before and how do you know about the Ajax Camps?
No, this will be the first time. We have participated at different camps, but never at the Ajax Camps. We are looking forward to it. Our trainers arranged everything for us and we come with a group of 17 football players from Shanghai. A great experience!
Could you tell us more about your soccer experience in China?
We both play at Guannan F.C. and we train mostly 3 times a weak. Zhou: “I play central of the midfield. We train very hard and I like the training session with 1 versus 1 and I also love to play the league matches. Jin: “ I play right or left winger and I`m very fast. I`m always very proud of my team when we’ve a good team play.’’
Have you ever seen a match of Ajax on TV or in the stadium?
Yes, sometimes we see games of Ajax on television, but unfortunately it’s not always broadcasted. When we’re in the Netherlands we hope to see a match of Ajax in the stadium.
Who`s your favorite Ajax-player?
We’re both fans of international stars who’ve played at Ajax, like Suarez, Ibrahimovic, Sneijder and Eriksen. If we had to choose 1 player it would be Luis Suarez, because he`s extremely good and together with Messi they’re the stars of Barcelona. Our trainers always teach in the style of Johan Cruijff and we train his tricks and skills.
Which country do you support at the World Cup?
Normally the Chinese people are huge fans of the national team of Holland, because they’re always excited and very recognizable in the orange colors. Zhou: “This World Cup I`m fan of France and Argentina, but unfortunately Argentina is disabled. Jin: “I prefer the team of England. First I also supported Spain, because they`ve a lot of famous soccer players.’’
Who is the best soccer player in the world?
Jin: “ I think Lionel Messi is the best player in the world, because he’s fast, has a good shot and the best technique, he is my idol. Zhou: “My favorite player is Pogba, because he’s fast and strong and is a great soccer player.''
Thanks for answering the questions. See you next summer at the Ajax Camps!
