Com apenas dois meias de ofício no grupo, em condições de jogo e uma certa fartura de volantes, o técnico Dado Cavalcanti, do Ceará, já ensaiou o time com três cabeças-de-área. Tudo, no entanto, ainda está em fase de preparação, para a estreia no Campeonato Cearense, dia 15 contra o Itapipoca, às 20h20, no PV.
O meio-campo que vem sendo treinado por Dado Cavalcanti é formado por João Marcos, Jean Cléber, Uilliam Corrêa e Ricardinho. Já dá para perceber, que o técnico alvinegro deseja contar com Ricardinho na sua função original, de meio-campista, para tirar maior proveito do seu futebol ofensivo.
A formação completa que vem sendo preparada é a seguinte: Luís Carlos; Tiago Cametá, Sandro, Wellington Carvalho e Tiago Costa; João Marcos, Jean Cléber, William Corrêa e Ricardinho; Magno Alves e Marinho.
Dado já disse que deverá fazer modificações ao longo da pré-temporada, de acordo com a produção dos atletas, do condicionamento do grupo, dos testes físicos realizados, pelos reforços que venham a chegar, enfim, por diversas situações.
No elenco de 27 jogadores do Ceará, a posição de volantes é a que conta com maior número de atletas: sete, ao todo. São eles: João Marcos, Jean Cléber, William Corrêa, Carlão, Everton, Sandro Manoel e Mancha (este último é das categorias de base alvinegra).
Enquanto existem muitos volantes, o clube busca mais um atacante e os nomes são muitos na agenda dos dirigentes: Wellington Paulista, do Internacional/RS, William Batoré, que estava no exterior, e Arthur, ex-Flamengo e Londrina.

BEIJING, Jan. 8 (Yonhap) — North Korea has expressed regret over the killing of four Chinese citizens by a runaway North Korea soldier late last month and the alleged perpetrator was shot dead during a manhunt, according to China’s foreign ministry Thursday.
The North Korean soldier crossed into the Chinese border town of Nanping, just north of the Tumen River overlooking North Korea’s North Hamkyong Province, and killed four elderly Chinese people on Dec. 28 last year during a robbery attempt.
China has lodged a rare diplomatic protest with North Korea over the killing, but appears keen to avoid further straining ties with its only treaty ally, Pyongyang, describing the border incident as “an individual criminal case.”
“After the incident occurred, the Chinese police immediately launched a manhunt operation. During the operation, the killer was shot and died later after medical treatment failed to revive him,” China’s foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement posted on the ministry’s website on late Wednesday.
“The DPRK (North Korea) side expressed its regret that such an incident happened, and conveyed its sympathy to the family of the victims,” Hong said.
“This is an individual criminal case,” Hong said, adding that the two nations have been “carrying out follow-up investigations and dealing with the case in accordance with the law.”
It is not uncommon for North Korean soldiers or citizens to cross the border into Chinese towns and attempt robberies.
In December 2013, a North Korean defector in his 20s killed an elderly Chinese couple in the Chinese border city of Yanji and stole 20,000 yuan (US$3,210). The North Korean defector was caught by Chinese authorities after fleeing to Beijing.

“The directive to establish the statues of the late leaders came as the three-year mourning period for his father Kim Jong-il drew to a close. This appears to be part of the efforts to idolize the ruling Kim dynasty,” said the defector, who recently fled the North.
Given that there are nearly 150 counties in the North, building the statues is expected to cost a lot of money, which critics argue should be spent on enhancing the livelihoods of its starving people and its debilitated economy.
As Kim has sought to consolidate his leadership since taking power upon his father’s death in December 2011, he has focused on idolizing his family through having statues built; renovating the Kumsusan Memorial Palace of the Sun, where the deceased leaders are laid to rest; replacing old portraits of the leaders with new ones; and promoting other propaganda activities.
Ahn Chan-il, the head of the World North Korea Research Center, said that through constructing the statues, the North Korean leader sought to further strengthen his political legitimacy.
“The statues have a lot to do with his efforts to solidify his leadership and political legitimacy. Establishing other facilities or monuments for idolization purposes would be a lot costlier and thus, Kim appears to be focusing on building more statues of his late grandfather and father,” he said.
Observers have said that Kim may face tougher challenges when it comes to maintaining his leadership and drawing genuine public support as his options for economic reconstruction are very limited due to the deepening isolation stemming from his country’s nuclear and missile tests, cyberattacks and human rights violations.
Though the coercive ruling system and deep-rooted brainwashing mechanisms would help Kim secure forced public consent for his leadership, the ever-worsening poverty would gradually erode his legitimacy as a leader, they noted.
Following the end of the three-year mourning period for his father, Kim is expected to focus on the economy. Economic recovery is a crucial legacy task for Kim, who aims to make his country a “strong, prosperous” nation, as the North claims it has already become a strong nation ideologically with its “juche (self-reliance)” ideology and militarily with its nuclear program.
