Will China be a football superpower? PART 2

It seems this frivolous spending has gone so far the Government had to intervene. Even though owners though they were doing the Government a service and in a sense they have brought a lot of attention and top class players to China but has it benefited football in China as a whole? That’s yet to be seen.

The Chinese Government wanted instant result but have cracked down on foreign imports to preserve the identity and integrity of their league. So with stricter rules in place and almost every team filling their foreign player quote, there are only 5 more slots in the whole league for foreign players.

Going back to my point in the previous blog , until China creates their own breakout stars and creates them with the same attention and praise as foreign imports, they will not be a football superpower.
