In an interview with Global Sports, Paulinho said that he hopes that Brazilian friends who are naturalized and joined the Chinese team can enter the World Cup as they wish.
I have my own views on this, and I look at it from a positive perspective. Many of them are players with their own history in Chinese football. The Chinese national team chose them because they were the right choice. I think these naturalized players who have joined the Chinese team have a very good historical background in China. They are respectful and full of affection.
Now they have the opportunity to enter the Chinese team to impact the World Cup. Although there is no opportunity to represent the Brazilian team, football is like this. They are now in China. I hope they can achieve their goal, which is to enter the World Cup. I think this will be an incredible thing for China. The friends who joined the Chinese team and the Chinese people cheered.
To be the best scorer in the team, or to care about scoring in all competitions, has never been my goal, that is, I am not the person doing this job, things always happen naturally.
Sometimes I think that the game cannot be played because the world is in such a state of chaos. We don't know how things will continue to develop, but afterwards, China controlled the epidemic very well. They set a detailed timetable and were very careful about everything.
It is not easy, I have to ask the club for some training equipment to exercise in the room. I also talk to my family as much as possible. This is something I must draw strength. During that time, I could hardly do anything except training. During this period, I also need to keep a clear head. This is indeed one of the most difficult moments of my career.
Like I said, the love Corinthians fans love me is something I bring into my life and career. In Corinthians, no one knows what will happen tomorrow. My contract will expire in 22 years, and I think only time will give the final answer. I will try my best to fulfill the contract with Evergrande, football is like this, I will enjoy the time now.
I will finish my fifth season in China. I think the most important thing for players playing in China is to have a good mind, focus and purpose. It is very important for me to be able to play here for many years. Everyone knows my professionalism. I am eager to always win the championship, so I focus on this.
The most important thing is that the players themselves have to be prepared and know what to do. This is why I have been in China for so many years. I am very happy, and my family has a very happy life in China. I have no complaints. The way they received me in 2015, their love and respect for me, I can only repay them with serious training and competition.
