Sixteen years ago, an unremarkable little boy came to the strange island of Chongmin, and sixteen years later he set foot on El Prat stadium in Barcelona. "At the time, I was full of embarrassment about my future, but the other side was nostalgia for my hometown." Recalling the scene of a trip to Chongming, Wu Lei said that his heart was full of expectations and reluctance. And this complex emotion may not differ from this time.
Early in the morning Beijing time, U. Lei officially appeared in the Spanish club and opened a new journey through Europe. For the best Chinese striker today, there is one biggest difference between the two fluctuations in 16 years: the 11-year-old left for Chunming, Wu Lei worked a lot for his future, but now he will also accept China. Heavy responsibility is the name of football. At the meeting, Lei very firmly said: "I want to show my abilities and let the world know that Chinese players can also stand in the top five leagues."
For ten years after Sun Jihai, none of the Chinese players could not resist in the five major leagues of Europe. In the context of a possible talent breakthrough in Chinese football in the next five or even ten years, Wu Lei, who does not want to win high awards in the Chinese Super League, This small step is a big step in Chinese football. Just as yesterday in the stands of the El Prat stadium slogans of Chinese fans read: “Have Lei, the hope of the whole village!”
There are concerns in the expectations of domestic public opinion
In an interview, Chen Haoyuan, chairman of the Shanghai Port Group, revealed that “the Spanish club promised to give Wu Lei a top position in the team,” but in a highly competitive top-level stadium such obligations often compete with a fast-moving situation. to change. Therefore, when U Lei donned a Spaniard's blue and white jersey, local public opinion heatedly discussed his perspectives.
The Beijing Daily mentions in a report that the problems Wu Lei faces are full of unknowns, especially in La Liga, in which Asian players have the hardest time standing. “In the five major leagues in Europe, La Liga is definitely the most difficult league for Asian players. Previously, only the Iranian player Neconan and the Japanese player Gan Goshi were very successful. In addition to these two people, other Asian players are just missing passengers in La Liga. ” The article also quoted Zhang Chandong, who had a short history of La Liga, saying “internal competition and the largest gap in La Liga is reflected in the rhythm. In addition to adapting to the rhythm, Wu Lei must also “adapt to the new environment as soon as possible and receive recognition from coaches, teammates and fans.”
Concerned that U Lei encountered difficulties in the rhythm of the Guangzhou Daily game, the newspaper reported that "the Spaniards visited U Lei, which proved that Lei has no problems in terms of abilities, only the Super League and La Liga." The rhythm is completely two-level, and Wu Lei should observe and learn well during this period of time. ”
"澎湃 新闻" believes that the real test can begin with the next season. “Wu Lei proved that he is the best player in China over the past few years. He is in his most mature age, and Wu Lei eventually I chose a Spaniard, which means that both sides will definitely agree to the opportunity to play. Leia's injury also makes him get some rest. If he can return to the end of the season, after the Spaniard completes the slide, U Lei will definitely get several chances to play. His real challenge will begin next season when he needs to beat the head coach and teammates. ”
Sports Weekly said that when a foreigner Wu Lei has prospects to leave the country, the situation may not be as optimistic as some fans think, but it should not be too pessimistic. “Although the Spanish attackers are superior, they need to pay attention. Yes, they have only these three right forwards in the first team. The last few “parrots” of La Liga (the nickname of the Spaniard) have signed B. Campsano's big player list. He entered the list, and still not a problem to think about it. "
Western media welcome
Leah’s stay in the ocean aroused enthusiasm among local fans, and a Chinese player appeared at La Liga stadium, which also became a hot topic in the local media.
The Spanish "Pioneer" wrote an analysis of joining U Leia. The newspaper believes that although Wu Lei is very strange for European football, he is a legendary figure in China, he even said that according to Wu Lei looks like Messi, and the style of the game looks like David.

He scored 27 goals last season to win Golden Boots, and won the best local shooter for six seasons in a row. U Lei will give the Spaniards have provided great help. The main center of the Spaniard – Borja. Wu Lei can flexibly appear around him to help the line of attack. However, Wu Lei is currently injured and may return. At the same time, "Pioneer" also released a public opinion poll, the results show that 77.8% of fans believe that the introduction of U Lei is a good signature, he can give the team a goal.
The Spanish National Daily interviewed the famous coach Manzano, who taught in China for several years, and the latter highly appreciated Wu Lei. “This player has achieved tremendous success in recent years. He became a full-fledged forward. He has goals and assists. ” Manzano believes that U Lei can adapt to Spanish football. “I think everyone should have patience, as for players from South America, Africa or European small leagues. This is a good player, he has a strong combination of attacks with Oscar and Hulk. Top scorers in the Chinese league is often a foreign player, he broke this practice. ”
Some people are optimistic about nature, and some sing: “Aspen” is one of the Spanish media that is not optimistic about Wu Lei. “La Liga emphasizes technology, which is a big problem for Wu Lea. The space left to him will not be like As before. Secondly, this is a language problem, he needs to first learn Spanish. ”
