Wu Lei | Footballer

The football player was born in Nanjing in 1991. He is the first Chinese player to score a goal in the Spanish league and in a European competition.
His professional debut was with Shanghai SIPG Football Club. He was just fourteen years and ten months old, but he soon showed that he had a very promising future ahead of him. Wu Lei won the Chinese Super League Golden Boot in 2018 and the Golden Ball for best Chinese player in 2019. For five seasons he was also the top goal-scorer in the competition, with 27 goals.
In January 2019 he started playing for RCD Espanyol in Barcelona and from that moment he has worn the number 24 shirt at every match. On the pitch, Wu Lei is single-minded about winning it all for his team. But after the match, he has another aim: to explore Catalonia, the land that makes him feel at home.
