Wakaso was one of the great protagonists of Alavés in the first part of the season. The Ghanaian international became one of the most used players by Asier Garitano sharing the midfield with Tomás Pina, Manu García or Pere Pons. He stood out for his intensity and also for the large number of warnings he received. He completed two yellow cycles and missed the game after Granada with a red one.
Nonetheless, the club from Vitoria wanted to renew it and made a proposal for continuity in Mendizorroza. But it was down and that did not convince the African. Some clubs like Getafe began to be interested in him so everything pointed towards an agreement or an exit. What a selling entity like Vitoria was not going to allow was for it to go free in June once its contract ended. It was how much The option of a Chinese club appeared: Jiangsu Suning in Nankin.
Going to that eastern country when the coronavirus epidemic began did not seem the best idea but Wakaso packed, leaving more than 3 million euros in the coffers of Alavés. “You have to understand him because he has signed the contract of his life and his family is delighted with the idea,” his best friend on the staff, Jorge Franco, “Burgui” would say a few days later.
It so happens that all the suspicions and jokes that Wakaso had to hear now have turned around in a thunderous way. The African is in a country practically free of coronavirus while Vitoria is one of the most lashed towns in Spain. Only in the club, there have been 15 positive cases so far: 3 in the squad, 5 in offices and 7 in the coaching staff.
