Xu Jiajun, who just turned 25 this year, became famous very early. He has a talent for football since he was trained in Tianhe Sports Center Sports School since he was a child. In 2011, with the help of the "Dream Come True Selection Charity Program" project, Xu Jiajun went to Brookhouse College in the United Kingdom to study abroad for two years.
In 2013, Xu Jiajun returned from studying in the UK to join Guangzhou R&F’s reserve team, but he did not get many opportunities. In 2015, he walked out of Guangzhou and traveled to various professional teams of different levels, including Hebei Huaxia Fortune, Shenyang City, Beijing Renhe, Yanbian Beiguo, and even went to the Belgian team Roeselare for a short stay abroad. But in the end, he chose to return to China.
At the beginning of 2019, Xu Jiajun chose the 7th club in the past 7 years-he joined the Chinese second team Taizhou Yuanda as a free agent.
"I have been hoping to find a club that can be the main player in the years I went out from Guangzhou, but it may not be stable because of the lack of physical conditions and the style of the coach." Looking back on the "wandering years of those years" "Xu Jiajun said, "However, due to the experience of being alone in the UK as a teenager, I am not uncomfortable with the life of leaving Guangdong to play football games outside. This may be a bit different from traditional Guangdong players. No matter which one I arrive. The club I do my best, no matter whether I can play in the game or not, I never thought of giving up because of various objective difficulties."
Although Taizhou Yuanda is headed by a typical northern coach Yin Tiesheng, and most of his players play tough, but fortunately, Xu Jiajun found a long-lost sense of identity and belonging in Taizhou Yuanda. Li Yang, the owner of Taizhou Yuanda, is a super fan. From forming an amateur team to becoming a Chinese second club, he has always supported him in all aspects.
In the second half of 2019, Xu Jiajun was quickly reused and gradually became the main player and shooter in the team. This year, in addition to the classic battle that left Guangzhou fans with the most impressive FA Cup lore and elimination of R&F, Xu Jiajun scored 12 goals in China B and became the No. 2 shooter in the Yuanda team.
"The owner of the team also appreciates me very much and takes special care of me in life. Director Yin valued me very much and arranged tactics suitable for me. Even for my weaknesses in physical strength, the club also asked a Spanish physical fitness coach to specialize Developed a training plan for me. I feel that this year has been particularly helpful to my career growth, and it has also fully established my self-confidence to play in the domestic professional league." Xu Jiajun said.
In December last year, Taizhou Yuanda started winter training and only took a few days off before the New Year. But after the outbreak of the epidemic, the team quickly refocused, and then intensive training until the beginning of the Chinese League in September. "Affected by the epidemic this year, we have experienced a very long and very long period of training preparation. Later, we have been adopting the method of match-up training and played many warm-up matches. I feel that the state has been maintained good, and everyone has a good An unprecedented sense of competition hunger." Xu Jiajun said.
Regarding the team's entry into the Super League, Xu Jiajun said frankly that he did not expect it before the start of the season, "As a newly promoted horse, from the boss to the coach, the goal is to first relegation and gain a firm foothold in the Chinese League." "However, there are many experienced veterans in our team and strong foreign aid capabilities, so it is not surprising that we can enter the super group. Today we achieved the relegation goal ahead of schedule, and our team is very happy!"
In the 10 rounds of the first stage of the Chinese Premier League, Xu Jiajun scored a total of 4 goals for Taizhou Yuanda, and all of them were scored against the Beijingers and Beiti University. He also became the team's first scorer. . "I myself have never considered that I can become the number one shooter in the team. I finally achieved this result. It is inseparable from the support of all my teammates, especially the trust of the head coach. This year's competition system in China A is for everyone. Challenge, three or four days of a game consumes a lot of physical energy, and it is almost the same as the one and three games in the UK when I was a child." Xu Jiajun said, "The first stage has the most profound and important impact on me, of course, today 2. We beat Beijing Renhe by one. In this game, we can only enter the super group by defeating our opponents. It is really unforgettable that we can score an important goal!"
在中国足球超级联赛第一阶段的10轮比赛中，徐家俊为台州远大队总共攻入4个进球，所有这些进球都是对阵北京人和北蒂大学的进球。他也成为球队的第一得分手。 。 “我本人从未考虑过自己可以成为队中第一号射手。我终于取得了这一成绩。这与我所有队友的支持，尤其是主教练的信任密不可分。今年的中国比赛体系挑战，一场比赛三到四天会消耗大量的体力，这几乎与我小时候在英国的一场和三场比赛相同。”徐家俊说：“当然，今天第一阶段对我有最深远和重要的影响。2.我们一人击败北京人和。在这场比赛中，我们只能通过击败对手而进入超级组。这确实是令人难忘，我们可以取得重要的目标！”
Looking back at the first stage of the game, Xu Jiajun thinks that he is most grateful for Yin Tiesheng’s trust. “Director Yin has given me many opportunities this year. What he said to me most is the word confidence. He encouraged me to take more in every game. Play the ball, run more, take more shots, and cooperate with your teammates on the offensive end. I think being a player with confidence may not necessarily win, and without confidence, you will definitely lose!"
In Taizhou Yuanda Formation, although Xu Jiajun is a southerner, he and all the northern teammates are very good. "The experience of Liu Jianye, Wen Chao, Shen Longyuan, Liu Junpeng, Dong Lei and other veteran players has helped me a lot. Joking with me also gave me a lot of encouragement," Xu Jiajun said. "Our three foreign aids this year are very strong, especially Tosic has played Manchester United before. His technique and ball handling ability are very strong. I learned from them. I have learned a lot from me. Because I can speak English, I have a lot of communication with them. I also have a tacit understanding with each other on the court, and I can play some good tactical cooperation."
Looking forward to the Super League match, Xu Jiajun believes that although the team's relegation goal has been completed, there must be a dream. "The 6 teams that can enter the Super Supergroup should be about the same strength. I have also watched games in other regions. I don't think anyone can make it to Super Supergroup in the end. They all have a chance!"
As for the three Guangdong teams in the Chinese Super League, Xu Jiajun said that he watched each of their games, “Hengda’s overall strength is stronger this year, and it must be the favorite of the Chinese Super League champions. As for R&F, I am confident that they can Get the top ranking in the relegation group!"
Will Xu Jiajun and Taizhou Yuanda continue to perform miracles next? let us wait and see.
