Lightning tab the first Chinese League history
Zhang Chengdong will be the first Chinese in the history of the Spanish League. Rayo Vallecano, will hire the one who will be the first Chinese footballer to step on the league fields. Until now, the Spanish First Division had seen their Japanese fields pass by, Iranians, players from practically all parts of Africa, South America Australians…almost from all parts of the planet except from China.
Born in 1989, Chengdong comes from Beijing Guoan where he was under the command of an old acquaintance of the League like Gregorio Manzano. It was precisely the Spanish coach who broke the news on his personal Twitter: “Firing Zhang Chengdong. First Chinese player to go to 1 era Spanish Division. Good luck in the Ray”, openly commented on the Spanish preparation in the well-known social network.
The player, international for China already has experience in European football. He played in Portugal, at the Uniao Leiria and at the Beira Mar. He also played for Eintracht Braunschweig in the German second division.. It is speculated that the player, would arrive by imposition of the club sponsor's contract, also from the Asian giant. Either way, Zhang Chengdong will go down in history as the first Chinese player to serve in it.
