Salomon Longdong, the forward of the Chinese Super League Dalian team, accepted a video interview from The Guardian. He talked about his feelings for Newcastle, his experience in China and his advice on Chinese football.
In the first stage of the Super League, Long Dong played 13 times for the Dalian native and scored 9 goals. When asked about the schedule and environment of the Chinese Super League, Long Dong said: “We play the game the first day, we will start training the next day, and we will play the game four days later. In 60 or 70 days, we may only have one day off. In the face of this situation, you must be firm in your heart and not think too much about what is happening around you."
"A few days ago, some of our Chinese Super League foreign aid, Ghanaians, Brazilians, Colombians, etc., talked about football, epidemic, AFC and other topics downstairs in the hotel. We tried to organize our thoughts. The current game environment can easily affect the athletes' Mental health. Thank God, my family understands this situation, although it is still difficult."

In the 18/19 season, Long Dong played for Newcastle United on loan, but after the end of the season, Benitez left Newcastle, Long Dong also ended the loan and returned to West Brom, who was still in the Championship. Speaking of his experience in the summer of 19, Long Dong said: "I like this pressure, and I have proved that I am worthy of the No. 9 jersey. I think I can stay in Newcastle. But in the football world you never know. What will happen. If Newcastle gives me a chance, of course I will stay, but they didn't say anything, it was like a mystery. Then Benitez contacted me:'Do you want to come to China? I have this plan. '"
"In the final analysis, the career of a football player is very short. I have to work hard to take care of my family and children, and plan for the future (so I came to the Super League). But if I have the opportunity to sign for Newcastle again in January, I will definitely do so. I did, because this club gave me a lot of things and I felt a lot of support at St. James’s Park."
Speaking of Benitez, Long Dong said: "Perhaps people will say that he talks too much, and always say you have to do it like this. With a coach like him, you have to listen to what he says very seriously. Since the first time I met him, everything has been wonderful. He is of great significance to my career."
In China, Long Dong tried to assist Benitez to help Chinese players progress. He believed that for China, which has already made a huge reserve for the development of football, it is necessary to maintain patience. Long Dong said: "This (in It’s difficult for China to develop football, because Chinese football is different from what we have seen in other countries. Chinese players are more worried about making mistakes and maybe a little afraid of touching the ball. Benitez tries to teach them to control the ball, keep in shape, and be reasonable Kick time."
"Chinese football is on a good path, but if you try to do too much in a short time, then the next step will be difficult. They want to enter the World Cup and invest a lot of money, but in my opinion , You have to walk before you can run (to lay a good foundation)."
For the 31-year-old Long Dong, going to the European League may be very attractive, but first of all, he still has a mission in China. He said: "Some people say,'You are going to be unemployed, you are going to retire', but in fact they don't know anything. I'm still scoring goals and in good condition. I'm still working hard in China."
