Guangzhou Evergrande new boy Barrios confident he will be a success in China

Lucas Barrios believes he can do very well in the Chinese Super League after signing with Guangzhou Evergrande.

The 27-year old Paraguayan striker departed German Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund to join former Italy manager Marcello Lippi at Guangzhou and is confident he and his new team can be a success in a league which has seen ex-Chelsea star Nicolas Anelka struggle.

"No one can decide a game," Barrios said.

"Only through working hard with your teammatescan you win. I can help the team win in the games ahead, and I believe I will be successful in China.

"I paid attention to soccer leagues in Asian countries, especially the CSL, when I played in Europe.

"The Chinese league and the entire soccer industry in China have improveda lot in recent years, which helped me make the decision to move here.<>p> "Through conversations with the club's managers and some of my friends, I knew Guangzhou Evergrande was a team that was run with an international approach, so I decided I would have a try in China."
