China football spent a lot of money to introduce naturalized players during the Jin and Yuan football periods. Now some naturalized players have left China to restore their original nationality after receiving the money, and even some naturalized players have not made one appearance for the national football team. Recently, a former naturalized national football player returned to his original nationality and scored a goal in seconds. Have to let China football doubt his true ability.
The former naturalized football player in China is Xiao Taotao, who has recovered his Peruvian nationality and now plays for Peru Sports University. After returning to Peru, Xiao Taotao seems to have greatly increased his strength. He has already contributed one goal to the team. The club also regards Xiao Taotao as a key player. However, he has never even played in the Super League in China before, and is regarded as one of the most unsuccessful naturalization by China football.
After being naturalized by Evergrande, Xiao Taotao’s strength has not been fully recognized. Even when he was loaned to play football in China, the national team looked down on Xiao Taotao. Until he left China, he was not recognized by the national team and never got a chance to play for the China team. However, during his four years in China, he earned a lot of money, and Evergrande gave him an annual salary of 12 million RMB.
In 2019, Xiao Taotao played for Shenxin in Shanghai, China. He started in 5 of 10 games and scored 1 goal. In the 2020 season, there were only 6 appearances for Kunshan, of which 3 started with 0 goals; In 2021, he made 21 appearances for Kunshan, including 12 starts and scored 2 goals. These goal data show that Xiao Taotao’s strength is really not enough to enter the national football team.
However, Xiao Taotao scored a goal very quickly after returning to Peru, which surprised us a little. He himself said that he was very happy after returning to Peru and thanked his old club for not giving up on him. (Qianzi)
