Wu Lei is not living his best year with Espanyol. Without prominence and with a few minutes you cans is not one of Vicente Moreno’s ‘fixed’ in attack, the forward could also miss the last league games.
Wu, indisputable in the Chinese team, fixed he will go to his country in a couple of weeks to concentrate with the Chinese team and play qualifying matches for the Qatar World Cup 2022 against Guam, Maldives, Philippines and Syria.
The Asian team will play its first game Sunday, May 30 against Guam, but Wu Lei and the rest of the footballers will have to travel before to carry out a quarantine as a preventive measure against the coronavirus. So, quite possibly, Wu will miss the matches against Cartagena, Ponferradina, Tenerife and Alcorcón, to be played from May 16.
According to La Grada, the Chinese battering ram could even leave before mid-May if the Espanyol has already mathematically confirmed the promotion, if an agreement is reached and the coaching staff and sports management consider it appropriate.
Wu Lei is experiencing his worst year, individually, since he signed for Espanyol. He started out strong but has been diluted, being one of the attackers with fewer minutes on the payroll than Vicente Moreno drives. The Asian crack only adds up to 959 Official minutes in 31 games between the League and the King’s Cup and when he has taken to the field, almost always from the bench and seeking to be a shock, his participation has not been decisive, quite the contrary. Wu has only achieved 2 goals in LaLiga, a weak balance compared to previous years.
