A city of friendliness

Relocating in Guangzhou was a huge step for Alan and his family, even though the fact that he has other Brazilian teammates at Guangzhou Evergrande who he can share his experience here with.

Alan came to Guangzhou, only to find that it is more international than he originally thought. Initially, Alan’s concern was regarding the food and language barrier. But he was quick to adapt to life in Guangdong, where he enjoys all kinds of food, from home and abroad.

Alan insists that Guangzhou has no lower degree of globalization than other major cities. He describes people here as “remarkably open-minded and friendly to foreigners”, and appreciates the city for its diversified culture, both traditional and modern. In a previous interview, Alan said Guangzhou is great place to live, and even came to the conclusion that his life in Guangzhou is better than it was in Salzburg.

Alan himself has experienced major changes in his personal life as well-It was in Guangdong that he welcomed his second baby. When Guangzhou Evergrande defeated Changchun Yatai with a 5-0 thumping on the evening of March 9th, Alan celebrated his second goal with the a cradling gesture for his coming child.

When it was time for Alan to find a proper education for his elder child, he was pleasently surprised that there is not only education in Chinese, but also schooling provided by Americans, British and even Brazilians. Alan says his family appreciate the life here, made easy by convenient health care and education.
