This week, football fans from across China and beyond have travelled to Nanjing and Shanghai to watch their favourite teams in action in the Premier League Asia Trophy.
"I came to the UK as a university student for the first time in the year 2000," said Yang.
"Wolverhampton was the city where I used to live, for more than three years, and Wolverhampton is in my blood.
"I always remember when we first got in the Premier League in 2003. I was in Cardiff to watch them beat Sheffield United 3-0 [in the Championship playoff final].
"That's always in my memory. I will never ever forget that for the rest of my life, so I'm very excited to be here with my family.
"My kid will watch Wolves play live for the first time in her life and she will never, ever forget it."
It is not every day that Premier League teams visit China, and thousands of fans are grasping the opportunity with both hands.
Yang and his family will be travelling on from Nanjing to Shanghai for the encounter against Manchester City, too, demonstrating their true commitment to the Wolves cause.
"You know I came here just to watch this game," he said. "I'm not local. Today is the first destination, and three days later I will be in Shanghai. Come on Wolves!"
