Wang was born in Spain and can speak Spanish, English and the local dialect in Qingtian County, east China's Zhejiang Province, where his Chinese parents grew up, but he still needs to brush up on his Mandarin.

The starlet was nominated as one of the '60 best young talents in world football' by The Guardian in 2017 and was crowned the best futsal player in Cuenca, Spain for three consecutive seasons between 2009 and 2012.
