Original title: Does Liaoning's Asian Club Cup count? Lippi took credit: I took Evergrande to the AFC Champions League! No one can do it before
It was reported on October 13 that the Italian media "tuttomercatoweb" recently disclosed an interview with Lippi. The former national football coach talked about his contribution to the Chinese club. He said that before he came, no one could lead the Chinese team to win the AFC Champions League.
But the old man seemed to be mistaken. He really didn't know the basic situation of the Liaoning Men's Football Team when they won the championship in 1990? The Liaoning team won the Asian Club Cup 30 years ago in 1990. In 1989, the Liaoning Men's Football team won the title of the Chinese A League, which represented Chinese football in the Asian Club Cup. Finally won the championship, although it was not called the AFC at the time, the Chinese club really won the Asian club championship. In fact, this was the AFC Champions League that year, the highest level of Asian football clubs.
At that time, Liaoning was called the Liaoning Dongyao亚搏手机版 Team. They defeated the Macau Team 5-1, the Japanese Nissan Team 1-0, and the Korean Truck Team 1-1. They entered the second stage with an unbeaten record. In the second stage, Liaoning Dongyao beat Iran亚搏体育app登录’s Sahin 2-0, 1-0 Indonesian team, 0-0 Iraq Rashid team. This result allowed Liaoning to reach the finals with 4 wins and 2 draws in six games. Then in April 1990, they played the Asian Club Cup final with the Japanese Nissan team. The Liaoning team went 2-1 away and 1-1 at home, eventually winning Nissan Japan. Won the Asian Club Cup for the first time! This was also the highest-level champion of the club in Asia at that time.
