Li Yi, born in Bengbu, Anhui Province, China on June 20, 1979, is a Chinese professional football player. He is now the head coach of Sichuan jiuniu football club.
In March 1991, Li Yi joined the locomotive junior football team. He has played in many Chinese Super League (a) clubs such as Beijing Guoan, Shenzhen Ping'an and Shaanxi Chanba. He is the main player of Shenzhen club who won the first Chinese Super League Championship in 2004. In 2003, he won the last generation a golden boot award. Li Yi is fast and in good physical condition, but unfortunately, he is not so good. Before 2003, he played well in the national team and the Olympic team, but later he was not very satisfied. In early 2011, Li Yi announced his retirement.
On March 8, 2013, Li Yi officially launched in-depth cooperation with the king of war to speak for the counter attack culture. On November 7, 2013, Li Yi took over the post of French "white Wizard" trussier as the acting head coach of Shenzhen Mavericks capital red diamond team.
Li Yi was born in the locomotive team, later joined Beijing Guoan club, and then followed his mentor Zhu Guanghu to Shenzhen team. Li Yi is fast and in good physical condition. But the weak point is that it's just a foot in the door. In 2003 before the national team and the Olympic team have a very eye-catching performance, but later has been unsatisfactory, after the 2004 Asian Cup has not been able to re-enter the national team.
In 2004, Shenzhen Jianlibao Zhongchao won the first championship. In Jianlibao's season, Li Yi's powerful center is domineering. Under the head coach's playing style with him as the core, Li Yi is like a fish in water. His center is the core of the team's defense. Basically, every attack ball of the team has to pass under Li Yi's feet, and then Li Yi chooses whether to divide the ball or break through with the ball.
Asia Cup Miss single shot
In the 2004 Asian Cup final, Li Yi missed a single goal. After the single goal was not scored, Li Yi was questioned and even denounced by the fans. Since then, Li Yi's state has plummeted. Intentionally or unintentionally, "my ball protection like Henry" attracted a lot of abuse from netizens.
After winning the championship in 2004, the Shenzhen team has enjoyed a lot, but Chi Shangbin has set an embarrassing record of nine rounds in the new season. Chi Shangbin, who can't play the Shenzhen team, finished class on May 17. He and Yang Saixin, the former chairman of Shenzhen club, put forward the astonishing argument of "ball bully" in Beijing. When the news of Da Chi's resignation was disclosed, the reporter blocked Li Yi who came out of Jianlibao base and asked, "how do you feel after Chi Shangbin's class?" Li Yi replied: "it's daybreak", but this sentence "it's daybreak" has made him a target of public criticism. Since then, the name of "soccer bully" has spread all over the country.
My guard is like Henry
On May 25, 2005, Shenzu won the qualification in the Asian championship match with Samsung Shuiyuan. As a forward, Li Yi's containment in the front court was remarkable. After the match, an authoritative domestic sports media reported that Li Yi said triumphantly: "my ball guard is like Henry.". It's this sentence that makes Li Yi an Internet celebrity and resounds across the country in the name of "the great emperor". Until today, when Li Yi waves goodbye to the green field, people still think of this most classic quote in Chinese football circle.
State of decline
In 2004-2009, Li Yi was sought after by netizens because of the "Asian Cup event" and "dawn" and "my ball guard is like Henry" events, and then fell into a depression. In the 2008 season, Li Yi only scored three goals. In the 2009 season, he failed to score one goal and was punished for three stops because of "negative training attitude". Later, Li Yi was given a chance to play again because of the change of coach of Shaanxi team. So far, people are still waiting for the former "emperor" to get back the feeling of scoring.
Announce to hang up your boots
Li Yi: the great emperor is still looking for his next stop. As for his way forward, Li Yi said: "I am in a state of waiting, and where my next stop is has not been determined." But he also said his own idea, "I may go to Shenzhen, because this city has left me too many beautiful memories. I am almost half a Shenzhen person. But all this has not been finalized, if there is no place, maybe I will choose to retire. The friendly match, one of which was wearing No.14 Jersey, attracted wide praise from Yisi.
On February 24, 2011, Shenzhen football team held a warm-up match with Guizhou Zhicheng, a new Chinese team. In the match, Shenzhen team defeated the opponent 2-0 with Li Yi's volley in the first half and the opponent's own goal.
On March 12, 2011, Shenzhen Maotai red diamond team held its first teaching match with Changchun team at Yatai base in Chengmai, Hainan. Finally, Li Yi, the substitute, headed the goal to help the team draw 2-2.
At 0:34 on March 24, 2011, Li Yi officially announced to hang up his boots on Sina Weibo. Since then, there has been no Bengbu roundabout in the world.
Li Yi is the assistant of Shenzhen Red Diamond team.
On May 5, 2011, Li Yi visited CCTV's "night of football" program. Yisi all over the world sat in front of the TV, listening to Li Yi's story about the great emperor. It is reported that this issue of "football night" is the highest ratings in history.
On October 14, 2020, Sichuan jiuniu, a Chinese first-class club, officially announced that the club decided to punish Li Yi for his improper remarks, which hurt the feelings of Sichuan fans and brought bad effects to the club. The full text of the announcement is as follows:
In view of Li Yi's improper remarks at the post match press conference of the ninth round of the first phase of the 2020 China League A (editor's note: on the evening of October 11, Sichuan team lost two goals in a row and was killed in the make-up time stage of China League A, coach Li Yi "teased" the yellow shirt of the team at the post match press conference, which did not bring good luck.) The club decided to punish Li Yi, deduct one month's salary from Li Yi, and order Li Yi to suspend his post for one week from now on, so as to seriously study and deeply understand the glorious history of Sichuan football development and the football culture inheritance of yellow belief.
Bengbu roundabout: one of the advanced skills of protecting the ball. It refers to the advanced football skills that players use 361 degree turning action to protect the football, get rid of the opponent's snatch and protect the ball firmly under their feet in the process of high-speed protecting the ball. Because this technique was initiated by Li Yi, it was named "Bengbu roundabout" after the hometown of the great emperor.
