Ghanaian midfielder, Mubarak Wakaso was flown out from Ghana to Nanjing on Thursday to join his new side, Jiangsu Suning.
The 29-year-old was flown in a private jet with exquisite interior decoration which is a taste of class and luxury.
The midfielder was signed by the Chinese Super League side from Deportivo Alaves during the January transfer window.
But the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic which first emerged in China late 2019 prevented him from travelling to the country to join Jiangsu Suning for the start of the new season.
The combative player was with his new teammates briefly in a pre-season tour in Dubai but flew back to Ghana ahead of lockdown to stay with his family. He had since been actively engaging in personal training back home in anticipation of securing visa and clearance to travel to China.
And the time was due today (July 9) after Jiangsu Suning secured permission from Ghanaian authorities to fly Wakaso out with a private jet.
The 2020 Chinese Super League (CSL) season was slated to begin on February 22 but was forced to be postponed because of the raging COVID-19.
Five months on, the CSL is now set to start on July 25 in an entirely new format.
