HAIKOU -- Wu Lei, the prolific striker of the newly-crowned Chinese Super League (CSL) side Shanghai SIPG, won the CSL Top Scorer and Player of the Year awards here on Wednesday.

Wu, 27, scored 27 goals to help Shanghai SIPG claim the CSL title in the 2018 season, ending Guangzhou Evergrande's monopoly since 2011. Wu has also become the most prolific Chinese scorer in a single season, smashing the 26-goal record made by former star forward Li Jinyu in the 2006 season.

From the 2008 to 2017 season, the CSL top scorers were all foreigners. Former Guangzhou Evergrande forward Elkeson from Brazil still holds the CSL record of 28 goals in a single season, which he made in 2014.
