“Of course we have the desire (to buy into the team) and we’ll offer more supports as long as the team need”, said Shu Yuhui, the President of Quanjian Group.
“The new sponsor and overseas players will significantly boost our performance. We have the dream to win the league indeed, and we will spare no efforts to win it despite the intense competition with strong teams”, said head coach of the club.
