Timo Boll's appearance on the upcoming season of the Chinese Super League has already been announced a week ago. Once again, Boll will team up with Ma Lin in the league for the second time since their victory in 2011. Last season, Jiangsu only ranked fifth which made the team leaders unsatisfied. With this, team leader Yang Fei decided to invest on the German superstar Timo Boll. 

 

Modern Times. Last week, the lineup of the participating teams in the upcoming Chinese Super League was released indicating the presence of German superstar Timo Boll under the Jiangsu Team with Olympic stars Ma Lin and Chen Qi. 

"This summer, I will be joining the Jiangsu Super Cable Table Tennis Club and will be playing side by side with Olympic Singles champion Ma Lin and the Olympic Doubles champion Chen Qi. I am really looking forward to it!" Timo Boll wrote on his personal Weibo account. 

Later, the company's chairman, Yan Fei confirmed the news: "Yes, Boll has signed a one year contract with us." 

Last season, Jiangsu was one of the teams who had a powerful lineup considering both Olympic champions Ma Lin and Chen Qi were on their side. However, the team only fished fifth and failed to enter into the semifinals. 

With this, Yang Fei admitted that he was not satisfied with the result so through head coach Liu Guoliang, Yang Fei was able to reach Timo Boll and persuaded the German star to join the team next season. 

"Our first goal in the new season of the Chinese Super League is to enter the top 4 and compete in the second phase for the championship title." Yang Fei added. 

Of course, with such high-calibre player also entails a lot of consideration. "We have already calculated the appearance fees. He can get more than 100,000 yuan." Yang Fei concluded.
