Li Jiayue: After many considerations, she may only play as a substitute if she goes to a top European team
January 3rd In an interview with Five Star Sports, Li Jiayue, who just joined the Galatasaray Women’s Football Team
, talked about the reasons why he chose to study abroad this time.
Li Jiayue said: "I came to play in the Turkish Super League after many considerations. At that time, there were Spanish and Norwegian teams who wanted me, but these relatively top clubs had a relatively stable lineup when the league was halfway through.

It is also relatively big, and they want to get closer to the goal of European football. Galatasaray is a club, I believe anyone who knows football knows that they are an old giant club, and there are many stars in the men’s football team.
Their club is relatively complete in all aspects. This year, the Galatasaray women’s football team also temporarily ranks second. If they finally win the Turkish Super League, they will have a qualification for the Champions League. Therefore, I choose to add all of the above.
