How is former Brentford man Nico Yennaris getting on in China?

Published

Nico Yennaris made 157 appearances for Brentford during a six-year spell at the club after joining from Arsenal.

A versatile player, Yennaris can play in midfield or at full-back, spending the majority of his early time at the club in central midfield.

However, the emergence of other players around him saw him play more of his football at right-back.

Eventually he transferred to Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan for an undisclosed fee in January 2019.

During the 2019 season he made 25 appearances for his new side and in June, made his debut for China national team.

With his mother being of Chinese decent Yennaris was eligible to play for the national team and became the first ever naturalised player to represent the side.

Known as Li Ke in China, he plays the majority of his football in the centre of midfield for Beijing, but like in Europe the Chinese Super League has been suspended.

Currently, it is scheduled to restart on April 18.
