Chinese Team's head coach Liu Guoliang has always been expressive about the importance of veterans. They might not have the strength or stamina just like before to compete against younger players, they can still be great contributors as to their honing. Respect is also one of the values the Chinese Team emphasises. With this, Liu Guoliang would actually want to acknowledge the contribution and effort from them. 

QQ Weibo. They say nothing is permanent in this world except for change. As once the main players of the Chinese Team start their new journey outside the National Team, head coach Liu Guoliang wishes them well.
