On October 9th, Duan Liuyu accepted an interview with us at the Luneng Club training base. The last time I saw him at the Luneng Football School was three years ago.
Duan Liuyu, who wears glasses, has a very quiet personality. If it weren't for wearing a player jacket, you might not have thought that he was a professional player. On the contrary, he would have thought he was a fresh graduate.
In 2015, Duan Liuyu was learning Portuguese
In 2015, Duan Liuyu came to Luneng Football School from Shenzhen Cuiyuan Middle School, and soon he was sent to Luneng Brazil Sports Center for training.
“I’m unfamiliar with the place in Brazil. It’s actually quite difficult to live there at the beginning, and it’s boring. I also gradually adapt to the life there. It’s also an exercise for myself. As for football, The Brazilians are very spiritual in playing football. They feel that their football genes are carved in their bones. The opponents they meet during the game are also very strong. The rhythm of the game and the physical confrontation are fierce. Generally speaking, they are facing themselves. The help is not small."
In 2016, Duan Liuyu, Zhang Yuanshu, and Zeng Yuming returned to China with Brazilian sports to participate in the "Weifang Cup" and won the championship, but he was not the main player in the team at that time. A year later, he finally had the opportunity to show his progress to the fans more comprehensively. In the "I want to go to the Olympics" game, Duan Liuyu performed very well as the captain of Luneng U21 and is the absolute core of the team's offensive system. Speaking of this, Liu Yu seemed very confident: "After all, I have practiced in Brazil for so long, and I feel that I must show my achievements after returning to China."

Liu Yu did not return to Brazil after playing the "I want to go to the Olympics" in 2018. In the second half of that season, he entered the Luneng first team but did not get a chance to play. In early 2019, Luneng went to Hong Kong to participate in the "New Year Cup". Duan Liuyu After coming off the bench, he performed well, which also gave him a chance to start in the first round of the league.
"I was very excited at the time, but also very nervous. I thought in my heart that we should not make any mistakes first, at least do all the passing and receiving well."
Throughout the first half of the season, Duan Liuyu has been constantly adjusting himself. In the last round of the first half against Guoan, he got a great opportunity to score but missed the ball. After that, Li Xiaopeng replaced him, and when Duan Liuyu walked off the court, Li Xiaopeng immediately called him to his side.
Li Xiaopeng explains the ball handling for Duan Liuyu
"At that time, Director Li actually told me to be steady in front of the door and be more determined. You must not hesitate when you encounter this kind of opportunity.
Li Xiaopeng's remarks, Liu Yu obviously listened to it. In the second game after that, Duan Liuyu sent a sharp through plug for Gerdes to form a single shot, and the latter also used this opportunity to score the ball. After that, Duan Liu Yu played better and better. He scored two goals and also sent five assists throughout the second half of the season. This is a sufficiently outstanding report card.
Talking about his outbreak in the second half of last season, Duan Liuyu said that this was the result of constant hard work in the competition. The improvement brought by each training session was slowly accumulated, and finally the quantitative change brought a qualitative change.
In the 2020 season, Duan Liuyu is still an indispensable player in the Luneng team. In the first stage of the Super League, there were 14 rounds in total. Duan Liuyu made 13 starts and no substitutes were absent. This also shows how much Li Xiaopeng values him.
"After the competition last year, my mentality has improved a lot, and I feel more confident than in the past. During the previous epidemic, I also strengthened physical training and improved to a certain extent, but it is far from enough. In the first stage, my performance was quite satisfactory. Of course, the schedule was relatively intensive this season, and my body was actually a bit tired in the final rounds."

There is a line in "Spider-Man": "The greater the ability, the greater the responsibility." Although Duan Liuyu is still a U23 player, many fans no longer use the U23 standard to measure his performance. He needs to do more in many places. it is good.
Liu Yu himself is very clear about all these episodes. He said that he would not think too much at this stage, and he should steadily improve himself step by step. Of course, if he has the opportunity to go to overseas leagues to seek higher challenges in the future, he will bravely go out. .
For the future, Duan Liuyu has more expectations
None of us can predict the future. Let us look forward to all of this with an open attitude, and let time give us the answer.
