In the latest instalment of Tackling China, our special football series focusing on foreign players in the CSL, it's Darko Matic. The 36-year-old Croatian veteran joined Tianjin Teda in 2007 and moved to Beijing Guoan in 2009 where he helped them win their first league title.

In 2016, Matic transferred to Changchun Yatai and helped them stay in the top flight while becoming the most capped foreigner in the league with 272 appearances. Matic is also an accomplished linguist and can speak eight languages, but thankfully the man fans nicknamed Ma Wuye chooses English to chat to Mike Fox about his long career in China.
