At the beginning of January 30, Beijing, Wu Lei participated in a media meeting with the Spanish La Liga Club. One day before, Spanish officials announced that Wu Lei had joined the news. Only now, when Wu Lei has already fulfilled his dream of staying abroad, as he said, he still has to try to adapt to the local culture as soon as possible and integrate into this new team to become as soon as possible.
The first learning word is "getting into one"
January 30, Spanish No. 24 Wearing, Wu Lei officially appeared in El Prat Stadium. Club employees used Chinese "hello" outside the player channel to support the new support. Wu Lei smiled and replied with his thumbs.
It's a friendly start. After that, Wu Lei with shoulder injury hit the ball on the team's home court. Group photo, show ball skills, kiss team uniforms – players joining the new club are about the same, but as the first Chinese player introduced by the Spanish, this "set of action" is still a long loss for Chinese foreign players. When Wu Lei photographed with caddies, everyone shouted in Spanish: "We're here!"
Yes, Wu Lei has arrived here and it is his first time to go to live and play in Europe, there are still plenty of places to adapt, and team integration is only part of it, he needs to understand and adapt to local culture and life as soon as possible. .
Wu Lei's motivation is "to show the ability and hope to prove that Chinese players can stand in five leagues". As the most popular local attacker in recent years, Spain is also pleased with him.
After Wu Lei arrived in Spain, the first Spanish dictionary was "marcargol" – one. The club's top management made a clear statement at the meeting, but the introduction of Chinese players had some considerations to enter the Chinese market, but more importantly, "If not, we will not allow Wu Lei to come to the Spaniards, not just economic issues.
Of course, Wu Lei must first be given the opportunity to play before he can deal with the evaluation problem. "Initial debut, this is the first goal. The goal is the duty of the attacker, unless you can get the result, no matter who is against it." Wu Lei said.
"Integration is more than a course"
In recent years, the number of Chinese foreign players has fallen sharply, which is one of the Asian Cup's embarrassing data that the Chinese team is the only Asian Cup team from the national league.
Fortunately, there are still people who can provide experience and help Wu Lei. In 2015, Beijing Guoan lent Zhang Chengdong Vallecano to become the first Chinese player to land in La Liga. Zhang Chengdong told Wu Lei that La Liga is fast and is forced to adapt as soon as possible.
Another Chinese player currently playing in Spain is Guo's veteran Gao Leile, while his advice to Wu Lei is still integrated. “For foreign teams, you need to contact trainers and teammates and integrate into a locker than at the stadium. The team's appearance has been in the European team for several years and will provide valuable experience for several Chinese players in the future. "
However, now that he is in front of Wu Lei, his shoulder injury is Wu Lei's contact with a team doctor at the Spanish base and will examine it in detail on January 31st. Fortunately, his injuries to teammate Rupee did not cause any major difficulties, and the interview revealed: "Wu Lei is not really lucky because he was injured when he completed such an important move. Before signing the contract we had in-depth understanding and analysis of Wu Lei and we accepted final decision with caution, so Spaniard signed him because he is the best player in China and he can easily score a goal. Lei damage is not too serious, which makes me breathe a sigh of relaxation. ”
The first La Liga local star will be renamed
To stay in the ocean, Wu Lei's dream is small, his explanation is: “The overall level of foreign teams is higher. If you go, you will be very helpful. Even if you just follow the training, it will be greatly improved. ”In recent years, Wu Lei has received invitations from foreign clubs, but he said:" At that time my mind was still on the Hong Kong side because I had no team to win the championship. win the championship, it's my previous goal and dream. "
As a proud apprentice Xu Genbao, Wu Lei's history of growth is smooth and bumpy, he represented Shanghai's East Asian team at 13th and 10th of the 13th round of the Chinese League, ranking the youngest player from the Chinese football league. . In 2008, in the 15th round of the Chinese League, he stood out for the Qingdao Hailifeng goal in East Asia in Shanghai, at the time he was 16 years old and 289 days, becoming the second most recent Chinese football league. In 2013, Wu Lei scored 12 goals in the first Super League season and won the local best player. In the 2018 season, Wu Lei won the highest rating with 27 goals (without one penalty) and won the Super League Golden Boot, a foreign aid monopoly, which also stood out for the previous season's ranking by Li Jinyu. In addition, Wu Lei's top performance in China's highest league reached 102, exceeding Han Peng (93 goals) and Hao Haidong (96 goals), just below Li Jinyu's 120 goals.
However, Wu Lei, who is in the middle of the league, has always been criticized for his unified performance in the national team, but some said that as the national team did not have such excellent foreign aid as Oscar and Huoke, Wu Lei passed the ball, but also because of Wu Lei. was not sure of the national team when he was in Hong Kong.
In this Asian Cup group game, Wu Lei won twice against China in the Philippines. "The first person at the end of the Super League" finally wounded and broke the national team. Today he finally opened his career in the ocean, "Wuqiu Wang" can stand on La Liga, complete the transformation into the national team, become a new fan of hope.
