Leaving Spain’s La Liga For Wuhan – Despite Coronavirus Outbreak
Over 2,000 people have died as a result of the coronavirus.
WHO has announced an international health emergency. Meanwhile, Portuguese Daniel Carriço is signing for Wuhan Zall FC.
A couple of months ago, the coronavirus broke out in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
Over 75,000 people have since been infected by the virus and a little over 2,000 deaths have been confirmed. The city is in quarantine and WHO has announced an international health emergency.
Despite this, Sevilla’s Portuguese midfielder Daniel Carriço, 31, has now signed a contract with the football team Wuhan Zall FC.
On Thursday, Sevilla FC announced that their former captain is leaving after six seasons with the club.
“We wish you the best of luck in this new professional challenge,” the club writes in a statement. In addition, Sevilla FC is already working on a well-deserved farewell in the coming days for the beloved player. Carriço won the Europa League with Sevilla three times in a row between 2014–2016.
The Portuguese football player arrived in Sevilla from the Championship club Reading FC in the summer of 2013. He has since played a total of 167 matches as a midfielder in the Spanish La Liga club.
