LONDON, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- China's Zhou Yuelong reached the second stage of the Snooker Championship League after claiming one victory and two draws in the first stage group matches on Tuesday.
In a statement, the Beijing Ducks said the club had kept good communication with Lin and relevant parties, and had reached an agreement to extend Lin's contract before the California-born star's decision to leave.
Stage One involves 32 groups of four players, with the player who tops each group progressing to Stage Two.
"It's an agreement by our clubs and investors. We are expecting to help them get reasonable control of the spending. Besides that, all of us want a more balanced league. Under the cap, the teams are encouraged to pay more attention to their youth training system instead of buying players."
According to the organizing committee, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) confirmed the design schemes from all the host cities except Beijing on Tuesday.
"The board is united and there has been no discussion about Dome's position. It hasn't even been considered," Braz told reporters on Saturday.
"It's nice to be back. It's such a special club for me where I made my name, what an amazing club with amazing fans, it's incredible to be back," commented Bale on the Tottenham website.
The 48-year-old coach started his career in 2009 as the head coach of Iranian Pas Hamedan and then headed Iran's national U-23 team, Naft Tehran, Esteghlal and Zob Ahan.
"The finish was impressive, playing with nine against 11. We showed an incredible mentality. It was a deserved victory after a crazy match. I am very proud," the German coach said.
Middle blocker Wang Yuanyuan also returned from the national team to join Tianjin in their quest for the title.
Apart from Werder Bremen's Florian Kohfeldt, all the other head coaches voted for Bayern Munich, the reigning champions, to win its 9th consecutive title. Is the Bundesliga really that predictable?
